Ear Surgery for Children and Adults
Ear surgery is one of the few cosmetic procedures that can be performed on children and adolescents. After the ears have achieved full growth, which occurs at about age six, ear surgery can be performed.
Some parents feel that a child or teenager should undergo ear surgery as early as possible. If you have questions about ear surgery for your child, you are invited to speak with Dr. Birely in a private consultation.
Adults who have prominent or protruding ears have often waited for years for the opportunity to correct the condition. They may wear longer hairstyles to hide protruding ears, and after the surgery, they are thrilled to be able to wear their hair up or in shorter styles with total confidence.
Ear surgery is fairly fast and has a short recovery time, but it can profoundly impact your self-confidence and enjoyment of life!
