Otoplasty involves the reshaping, repositioning, and restructuring of the ears. This procedure helps both children and adults who have cup shaped ears that excessively protrude from the side of the head, as well as other ear abnormalities.
When Should Otoplasty be Performed?
Otoplasty can make a dramatic difference in the lives of both adults and children. Children benefit immensely from otoplasty when parents elect to have the procedure performed just before they reach school age. Otoplasty can be performed at our office when a child is as young as five or six-years-of-age. At that time, a child’s ears have developed to approximately their full size.
Septoplasty is a corrective surgical procedure done to straighten the nasal septum, the partition between the two nasal cavities. Ideally, the septum should run down the center of the nose. When it deviates into one of the cavities, it narrows that cavity and impedes airflow. Often the inferior turbinate on the opposite side enlarges, which is termed compensatory hypertrophy. Deviations of the septum can lead to nasal obstruction. Most surgeries are completed in 60 minutes or less, not including recovery time.
