Ear Surgery Seattle

Ear surgery has helped many children, teens, and adults achieve a more normal ear appearance. Kids born with overly prominent ears, whether they are disproportionately large or are protruding out from the side of their head instead of laying more flatly against the side of the head, often become the target of unnecessary years of teasing that can negatively impact their self-esteem while into adulthood. Many people seek out ear surgery, also called otoplasty, to correct the ears. Ear surgery typically may be performed on children as young as five and it is often stated that the earlier the procedure is performed the better not just to avoid the unnecessary years of teasing, but because the ear cartilage is easier to mold in younger patients. That said, many people get the procedure later in life from teens to adults.

If you are interested in learning more about ear surgery and to find out if it may be the right choice for you or your child, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Lynn Chung today. During your consultation, Dr. Chung will ask you about your medical history, goals, and concerns. This is a great time to ask questions and it is often helpful to write down important questions you have to bring with you so that you don’t forget.
