Many parents of children with prominent ears often consult a plastic surgeon about cosmetic surgery to correct the issue. Known medically as otoplasty and commonly referred to as ear pinning, plastic surgery to move ears closer to the head can produce truly impressive results that will ensure that a child's happiness and self-esteem do not suffer from teasing.
In a recent statement, the Beverly Hills Physicians say that otoplasty is typically performed on children between the ages of about four and fourteen. Interestingly, they state that the ears are typically fully grown by about age 4.
The Beverly Hills Physicians have office all around the Los Angeles area and offer many types of plastic surgery ranging from face, arm, and breast lift procedures to tummy tucks and more.
