Time to fix my child’s ears with cosmetic surgery
I’ve decided it’s time to find a facial plastic surgeon who can fix my child’s ears with cosmetic surgery. She’s four, and she’s going to be entering kindergarten next fall. I think she’s beautiful, and her father agrees, but the other children in her playgroup have already started making fun of her ears because they stick out a little. I don’t want her whole childhood to be like that.
They tell me there’s a ways to fix my child’s ears with cosmetic surgery in Charlotte NC called otoplasty or “ear pinning.” It’s one of the few kinds of cosmetic surgery that it’s okay to perform on children. It’s going to mean giving her a general anesthetic before operating on her ears. This is going to be scary for her.
Then the surgeon is going to make the incisions and sort of rework the cartilage of her ears to make them lie a little closer to her head. After the surgery is going to come the hard part — getting her to stay home and keep a big bandage like a turban on her head for five days straight. We’re going to do it over the holidays, when she’d be home anyway. We can have the stitches taken out in a week, but for the next month we’re going to have to keep her away for anything where she could get hit on the head.
