Otoplasty Miami, FL (Ear Correction)
Large, prominent ears can be a source of anxiety for both children and adults. Ears that are disproportionate to the head can lead to social discomfort and low self-esteem, especially in school-aged children. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your ears or feel that your child’s ears are unbalanced, ear surgery may be the right procedure. Otoplasty can pin or decrease the size of prominent ears to create a more natural and pleasing facial aesthetic. Dr. Baker, a Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, specializes in otoplasty at his Miami, FL practice.

Since younger patients typically have just entered social situations like school, correcting ear problems early on has a more positive impact on self-esteem. Most children face teasing as they get older, which can have a strong negative impact on their self-image. The goal of otoplasty in children is to give them confidence and shield them from unnecessary ridicule at school.
