Correct the Form, Function, and Appearance of the Ears
Ear Surgery in Fargo, ND
In certain individuals, the normal ear creases may fail to develop, or excess cartilage develops. Protruding, asymmetrical, folded ears, or ears with overly prominent lobes can cause insecurity and self-consciousness. Many of these problems can be addressed and reversed through a procedure called otoplasty, or ear surgery.
During treatment, the ears’ excess skin, tissue, and cartilage are reduced and refined, while the ears themselves are repositioned closer to the scalp for a more attractive and conventional aesthetic. This procedure can be performed on virtually any patient of any age as long as the ears are fully grown (often occurring around the age of five years old). Ear shaping surgery is one of the most common cosmetic procedures for children ages five to fourteen and is considered safe and reliable, with long-term positive results that can improve the self-image of the individual.
The main reasons for ear surgery are:
- Reduction of ear size
- Correction of uneven or asymmetric ears
- Reducing ear prominence
- Diminishing protruding ears
- Repair disfigurement from injury, disease, or birth defects
