Ear Reshaping Surgery (Otoplasty)
To View Full Gallery, CLICK HERE! Large, protruding, or unusually-shaped ears are often the source of ridicule and hurtful teasing, and can result in low self-esteem. Especially for children, the effects of harassment are difficult to overcome. At his Tijuana office, Dr. Camacho-Melo is happy to offer otoplasty, or ear reshaping surgery, as a relatively simple solution to this emotionally detrimental problem.
A small incision behind the ears ensures no visible scarring, and most patients can return to their regular routines just one week after surgery. Since a person's ears are fully developed by the age of four, parents can elect to have otoplasty performed on their children before they enter school, thus avoiding painful teasing altogether. If you or your child suffers from large, misshapen, or protruding ears, contact Dr. Camacho-Melo today to discuss your otoplasty options.
