Children born with ears that stick out or are abnormally large can have an extremely difficult time and are often teased. This self-consciousness about their ears can carry on into adolescence and even adulthood. McLean Cosmetic Ear Surgery, or Otoplasty, is a procedure to re-set the ears closer to the sides of the head to create a more normal appearance. The cartilage may also be re-shaped or some bits of it removed, as needed to create a more symmetrical and harmonious appearance. Cosmetic ear surgery can also be used to correct torn ear lobes and other imperfections in the structure of the ear.
Children as young as age 5 may be eligible for Cosmetic Ear Surgery. Dr. Hamrah has helped countless Washington D.C. area men, women, boys and girls achieve the results they desire through Otoplasty.
