Otoplasty in Palm Harbor and Clearwater
Enhancing your appearance with Ear Surgery
If you or your child’s ears are protruding or disproportional to your face, you may benefit from Ear Surgery in Palm Harbor. Teasing and ridicule that children with prominent ears sometimes experience can significantly affect their self-confidence. Adults with prominent ears can be equally affected and embarrassed about their looks. Dr. Moraitis has helped both adults and parents from Palm Harbor and Clearwater that have these concerns, and commonly recommends Otoplasty Surgery for correction.
With Otoplasty Surgery, sometimes referred to as “ear pinning”, Board Certified Palm Harbor Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Isidoros Moraitis repositions the ears by ear surgery in pulling them back closer to the head to give a more natural appearance. As a skilled surgeon, Dr. Moraitis can dramatically change the position of your ears, resulting in a more natural, aesthetic look.
Otoplasty Surgery Techniques
Correction of protruding ears involves surgical techniques to create or increase the antihelical fold (just inside the rim of the ear) and to reduce enlarged conchal cartilage (the largest and deepest concavity of the external ear). Incisions for Otoplasty Surgery are well hidden and placed on the back surface of the ear. When incisions are necessary on the front of the ear, they are made within the ear folds to help conceal them. Internal sutures are utilized to create and secure the newly shaped cartilage in place. The incisions are then closed with external sutures.
