Ear Surgery Discover a Renewed Sense of Facial Balance

If you or your child have been yearning for ears that protrude less, or that simply do a better job of framing your face and creating an appealing sense of facial symmetry, ear surgery might be a great option for you. As one of the few cosmetic procedures that can be performed on children, ear surgery can go a long way toward sparing a child the need to deal with unfortunate social situations as a result of asymmetrical or large ears. If you’d like to learn more about ear surgery, the Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery is here for you.

The Ideal Ear Surgery Candidate

Unlike most plastic surgery procedures, ear surgery is often performed on children ages four to 14, as it is important to perform the surgery as early as possible, to prevent teasing from other children, which can be emotionally stressful to the child. Ear surgery can be performed – with no additional risks involved – on adult patients as well.

You’re likely to be a great candidate for ear surgery with Dr. Burton or Dr. Reps Sundin if you’re interested in addressing:

  • Stretched lobes
  • Torn lobes
  • Trauma or injury
  • Large ears
  • Asymmetry

Creating Naturalistic Results

More often than not, patients who undergo otoplasty surgery are very satisfied with the results of their procedure. One must look at the results of ear surgery as enhancing the natural beauty innate in every patient; the point is not perfection, but the most natural, normative look possible. This is yet another reason why direct and honest communication with your surgeon is extremely important.

Luckily, Drs. Burton Sundin and Reps Sundin offer a combined 30 years of experience, along with a high level of specialized training. They’ll work with you to learn about your individual goals before crafting a treatment plan that sees you enjoying your ideal results. Their combination of technical skill and artistic inclination means you’ll enjoy naturalistic results that leave you feeling confident and empowered.
