Otoplasty – Ear Alteration Surgery San Diego

Published on December 20, 2013


Does your son or daughter have low self-esteem and confidence issues as a result of abnormal ears? This painful situation does not have to be permanent, thanks to otoplasty surgery. This procedure can reshape and resize the ears, making them more proportional to the rest of the facial features.

It’s easier for plastic surgeons to correct ear issues using otoplasty when the patient is younger rather than older. Earlier in life, a person’s cartilage is not yet firm and is thus easier to sculpt. The thick, firm cartilage of older patients can still be reshaped, but not with as much ease.

If you’re interested in finding out more about otoplasty surgery, speak with an experienced plastic surgeon. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Mofid has the experience necessary to answer any questions you may have and will make your child’s otoplasty procedure as comfortable and easy as possible.
