Ear surgery – also known as otoplasty – improves the shape, position, and proportions of the ear. The goal is to help the ear blend in with the rest of the facial features, enhancing both your appearance and your confidence.
Are you a Candidate?
Dr. Moran can confirm your candidacy during a private consultation for otoplasty at our Franklin, TN office. The surgery can be done on both children and adults. For younger patients, the ideal candidate is at least seven years old, because that’s when ear cartilage is stable enough for correction. The child should also be healthy and without untreated chronic ear infections.
It’s important that the child is cooperative, committed to the surgery, and can communicate their feelings about the procedure. For our teen and adult patients, you can be considered a candidate if you’re in good general health and a non-smoker. You should also have specific, realistic goals in mind for the surgery, as well as a positive outlook.
