Ear Surgery in Buffalo, NY
Surgery of the ear, also known as otoplasty, is a procedure that Dr. Shatkin performs that helps reduce protrusion of the ear away from the head.
Otoplasty is not limited to children and may also be performed on adult patients. Patients have been pleased with the long-lasting improvements to their appearance offered by ear surgery.
Most often, ear surgery is performed on children between the ages of six to fourteen. Ears that “stick out” are often the source of teasing and ridicule in young children. This teasing can have a devastating effect on the child’s psyche.
Protruding ears can also be corrected in adult life when the appearance bothers an individual.
