Misshapen Ears Can Cause Heartache: Learn More About Otoplasty

Teasing and childhood often go hand in hand, but any adult who has endured it during his younger years knows that teasing can leave lifelong scars. If your child has misshapen ears, otoplasty may save them from some of the heartache that teasing can bring. Come see Dr. Sajjadian and learn about your options. Dr. Sajjadian is triple-board certified and was recognized in 2014 as a “Physician of Excellence”. He was selected by his peers and Orange County Medical Association, so you can rest easy knowing your child is under his capable care.

Your child doesn’t have to endure misshapen ears until adulthood. Surgical correction is available during childhood.

What Can Otoplasty Do for My Child?

If your child has overly large ears, ears that stick out, or otherwise misshapen ears, she may be a good candidate for otoplasty. This surgical procedure reshapes the ears, creating a more harmonious facial appearance. It’s highly effective with few complications and is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed on children. In many cases, otoplasty can be performed before your child enters school, eliminating teasing before it ever starts.

Is My Child Ready for Otoplasty?

Otoplasty can be performed on children as soon as their ears reach their full adult size. For many children this occurs around age 5, just before entering Kindergarten. Dr. Sajjadian can help you determine if your child is ready for surgery during a consultation.

How Should I Choose an Otoplasty Surgeon for My Child?

Surgery can be difficult for children, even in the best of circumstances. Choosing a surgeon who will alleviate your child’s fears is essential. Dr. Sajjadian has worked with many children and will strive to make your child as comfortable as possible before, during, and after their surgery. His skill as a surgeon will ensure stunning results and reduce the potential for complications.

Is Otoplasty Available for Adults?

Although most of our otoplasty patients are children, Dr. Sajjadian does work with some adult otoplasty patients. Many adults who endured childhood teasing find otoplasty as an adult to be highly rewarding.
