Otoplasty (Taper Ears)


MOVING EARS CLOSER TO THE HEAD

This operation is frequently performed in children, before the start of school. Many adults who never had the opportunity for correction of prominent ears now take advantage of this procedure, which can provide a boost of self-esteem, with a fairly short down time.

SOME HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Most are done under local anesthesia with sedation, except in the very youngest
  • Operation takes about two hours, with return to home same day
  • A turban-like wrapped dressing stays on about four days
  • Costs: From $2000 to $3800 depending on the type of anesthesia and complexity
