Ear Surgery (otoplasty): Our ears “grow up” quickly – reaching full size around six years of age! – making cosmetic or corrective ear surgery possible for even young patients. Ears are comprised of a pliable cartilage which can be “pinned” back, reshaped, reduced in size, or made more symmetrical. Ear surgery, or Otoplasty, usually takes only a few hours and can provide great benefit to the right surgical candidates. Prospective patients and parents can discuss surgical options, healing times, risks and rewards with Dr. Wong in a consultation.
