By six years of age, this surgery is safe and effective to be completed on a child.

"Amazing Liquid Rhinoplasty! - I was unhappy with my facial profile so I went to Dr. Layliev for a liquid rhinoplasty(nonsurgical nose job). He listened to all my concerns, and discussed exactly how he would mold the filler to smooth the bridge of my nose. At the end he suggested adding some to the tip to give it a little turned up look, which I elected to do, and LOVE. He gave me my dream nose, all with filler, no..."- L. / RealSelf / Sep 28, 2018

Otoplasty is performed using general anesthesia or IV sedation. In many patients, the incision is placed behind the ear or within the ear. During this procedure, cartilage will be reshaped to create a smaller or larger appearance. It is common for each ear to be addressed during otoplasty to make sure they appear even. After this, the incisions are secured with sutures and are carefully bandaged so they stay protected.
What to Expect
When surgery is over and you are released, you will recover at home. We will provide you with a healing protocol before you leave our office. It's very important for you or your child not to touch, pick at, or scratch the ears. In addition, your child or you should not lay on the ears, rather sleeping upright for a few days. We typically like to see otoplasty patients back within a week — at this time, one of our plastic surgeons will be able to remove the wrappings and look at you or your child's surgical results. The outcomes can be seen right away and the progression of results will continue to look better as the ears heal.
Reshape Your Ears
Ears that are overly large or that sit in a weird position may make a big difference to your child or you. Ear surgery may help your child avoid getting teased from classmates or you if you've always felt self-conscious about your ears.
