Boys and girls from childhood up through adolescence and all the way into adulthood can suffer the teasing taunts of peers due to ears that are prominent, large, or stick out far from the sides of the head. This can cause damage to their self-esteem and confidence which can effect the rest of their lives. Dr. Okoro has helped countless boys, girls, men and women achieve more normal, proportionate ears with Atlanta Otoplasty.
Otoplasty, also known as Ear Surgery, is a procedure in which the ears are pinned back and excess cartilage is removed. The incisions for the procedure are made behind the ears to minimize any potential scars. Children as young as 4 may be a candidate for this procedure which generally lasts around 2 hours.
