Otoplasty

In cases of protruding or over-developed ears, the procedure of otoplasty may be an option. Otoplasty is commonly referred to as “pinning back” of the ears. It is available for children once their ears have stopped developing around the age of six. Over-developed ears can be the cause of psychological stress and trauma and should be treated at a young age before it becomes a serious issue. Dr. Bowles is trained in several surgical procedures, in order to eliminate the majority of the problems related to protruding ears .

Before Surgery

To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history prior to surgery. In addition, a complete examination of your ears is made in order to take the most effective surgical approach. All issues such as shape and types of anesthesia used will be discussed.

Dr. Bowles will provide you with pre-operative instructions that may include the elimination of specific drugs containing aspirin several weeks before surgery to minimize excess bleeding. Antibiotics may also be prescribed to prevent infection.

The areas that will be excised are marked and digital photographs are taken in order to document the amount of improvement after surgery. This section of our website is in development. We apologize for the inconvenience, please check back later.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

I have SEVERE anxiety with dentists, that includes oral surgeons, sorry Dr. Bowles no offense. My first appointment I tore up a stress ball, but they explained everything they were going to do, gave me positive affirmations and pats on my shoulder to let me know it would be okay. Before I left, I was in tears, not because of fear or anxiety, but because I was overwhelmed with the care and love they showed me. I had my procedure about a week ago and I honestly couldn't be more happy, still in pain some, but honestly I couldn't have asked for better. I kinda wish he was a normal dentist so I could just have all my dental needs done here. Thank you guys so much 🙂

Although the wait was long (they worked me in and did the very best they could) this was probably the very best experience I have had at any dentist office. I didn’t know we had an oral surgeon in town. If anyone looks for a recommendation I will most definitely refer them to this office. Super sweet staff, informative, doctor has a great bedside manner. Thanks so much you guys!!!!

I would put my life in this doctor’s hands again and have no doubts about his anesthesiology and surgical skills.
