What is an Otoplasty by [liv]®?

A Otoplasty by  [liv]® is also referred as an ear surgery that can improve the appearance of prominent or oversized ears by repositioning  and restore symmetry. Otoplasty is individualized based on the child’s particular anatomy. Ears may range from prominent to “cupped” to partially or completely absent. Timing for ear surgery in children is typically around 6-10 years of age or when they become teased and aware of the prominent ears. Ear correction surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure in the liv Plastic Surgery offices in Boca Raton, South Florida. Adults can have the procedure performed with local anesthesia while complete anesthesia is recommended for most children and teens.

Invest and Address: Did you know?

Candidates for otoplasty are unhappy with the natural size or shape of their ears. They may also have experienced an injury to the ear that has altered the shape. 

[liv]® Otoplasty:

Pin Prominent Ears: Is performed as an outpatient procedure, and general anesthesia is typically used to ensure patient safety and comfort. The incisions are placed behind or inside the ear depending on the type of correction needed. Soft tissue and cartilage are removed, and the natural ear folds may be constructed using existing cartilage, if necessary.

Repair Damaged Earlobes: Earlobe repair corrects damage that has occurred to the earlobe. This is usually the result of heavy jewelry or gauges that stretch the earlobes. Small incisions are placed around the earlobes, and excess tissue is removed. The remaining tissue is repositioned and stitched together for a natural-looking earlobe.
