Correct misshapen ears to regain your self-esteem and confidence
Also known as otoplasty, ear surgery is commonly performed to correct excessively large, misshapen, or protruding ears. Although the procedure has no effect whatsoever on improving hearing, it provides psychological benefits to people who have been teased about the size and shape of their ears, have suffered a serious ear injury, or simply want to improve their appearance.
Kitto Plastic Surgery’s otoplasty is a viable procedure for candidates who were born with irregularly shaped ears or whose ears have been disfigured due to an accident or a previous surgery. Although otoplasty is generally performed on children ages four to fourteen, this procedure can be beneficial for people of all ages.
In the past 20+ years I have had a face lift and various facial rejuvenations and fillers. So I have seen several docs, here and in Northern Virginia. Dr. Kitto is aces!!! She has a great eye and suggests subtle corrections that enhanced my best features and make me look refreshed and well rested. She has the most caring manner of any physician ever. She’s a highly skilled physician as well as a mom and wife. By doing what she does so well, she helps me go out into the world to do what’s mine to do, with my best face forward.
Dr. Kitto will make a small incision behind the ear and sculpt the cartilage into its new position or to the preferred shape. The ear will be held in the new position with sutures, and bandage is wrapped around the head until healing is complete.
A few days after the procedure, the bandages around your head will be replaced with a surgical dressing that should be worn for approximately one week. You may experience some pain or discomfort following the surgery that can be alleviated either with medicine prescribed by the doctor or an over-the-counter medication. Any incisions will be hidden behind the ear in the natural crease, and scars will not be visible to the eye.
My experience with Dr. Kitto set the bar high for my standards in a doctor. She was the first doctor I felt that took her time in listening to what I wanted while educating me in what to expect
