All About the Otoplasty Procedure
Jul 31, 2013 - 1:06:26 PM
It's a procedure that can be carried out on children over the age of four, as well, thereby sparing them any teasing at school because of their overly large or protruding ears. It takes between thirty minutes to an hour to complete and can be performed under local anesthetic.
For those parents still concerned about performing these procedures on children, the ear has usually stopped growing by the child's fifth or sixth year, so it is perfectly safe when conducted by an expert surgeon.
Parents often choose the summer vacation as the perfect time for their children to have the procedure, according to the Palm Beach Post. Besides the purely aesthetic nature of the results, having an otoplasty can also serve to increase the child's, or even the adult's, self-esteem.
Part of the reason is that contact sports should be avoided for up to three months, even if the initial recovery period is only seven to ten days. During this time, there may be some swelling, and it is important to wear a sports headband to bed once the dressings are removed.
The best news is that Dr. Naderi practices a technique known as an "incision-less" otoplasty, which, although not appropriate for everyone, uses sutures that thread under the skin, leaving no incision, scar, and with reduced bruising.
Dr. Naderi not only practices this technique, but he has also taught it to other surgeons as part of his ongoing efforts to remain at the top of his profession. At the initial consultation, Dr. Naderi will ascertain whether the patient is a good candidate for this exciting new technique.
So, with summer vacation here, perhaps it is time to think about booking a consultation as part of early preparations for the new school year.
