What is Ear Surgery?
Ear surgery helps to improve the shape and size of your ears. While this surgery can be performed for cosmetic reasons, some patients in the Coral Springs and Fort Lauderdale areas have difficulty hearing because of the shape of their ears. Dr. Phillips has also helped patients who have experienced damage to their ears as a result of injury, such as auto accidents and sports injuries.
Conditions Treated with Ear Surgery
Ear surgery can help correct ears that protrude or stand away from the head. Other conditions that may be corrected with ear surgery include oversized earlobes; lop ear, a condition in which the top of the ear folds down; and shell ear, a condition in which parts of the ear have not developed properly. Dr. Phillips has also performed ear surgery on adults who have ear piercings that stretch or tear the lobes of their ears.
Ear Surgery for Children and Teenagers
Ear surgery is a common method for correcting birth defects that impact a child’s appearance and hearing. With these young patients, Dr. Phillips educates the children and their parents on special considerations for the surgery. Children should be at least five years old before undergoing ear surgery. Before the age of five, the cartilage in the ear is still forming, and having the surgery performed too soon could result in multiple surgeries. Children should also be in good physical condition and without serious medical conditions. The healing process for children can be difficult, so as a parent, you should ensure that your child is able to follow instructions well and verbalize his or her feelings.
