Description

This 6-year-old boy faced lots of teasing from his peers about his ears, and reporting hating how his ears looked.  Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman treated him with otoplasty, or surgical ear shaping, to bring his ears closer to the head.  The patient is shown 1 day after surgery, with an excellent short-term result.  His ears will become less red and swollen during healing, usually taking a few weeks to heal completely.
