Ears may be one of the unheralded heroes of the human body. They give us the gift of sound, yet are discussed infrequently. Due to hairstyles they may not even be noticed. And yet…ears usually attract attention when the earlobes are not in proportion to the rest of the face, when the ears protrude outward in a socially unacceptable manner or when they age ungracefully with hair growing from the ears.
Dr. Joshua Halpern is an expert on the cosmetic repair of the ear for all age groups. He has performed otoplasties on many children and adults over the years, has repaired split earlobes and restored many an earlobe to make it appear more youthful and proportionate.
Dr. Halpern performs otoplasties on children. While some doctors do not have much experience with this type of surgery or don’t have the vision to see the artistic importance of giving a patient beautiful, natural looking ears, Dr. Halpern cares about the child’s self-esteem. It is not just the parents’ job to give their child good looking ears, thus motivating them to sign the child up for surgery; it is also the doctor’s responsibility to give the child the best ears that will permanently be a part of their facial appearance. Dr. Halpern is not interested in just doing a technical job to repair protruding ears, asymetrical ears or ears deformed by accident or birth defect. He feels that the child’s ears can be a future part of their self-esteem and success. Anyone who has been teased in school for any reason, or for protruding ears, can understand how strongly this issue affects students. That is why it is important to correct this problem as early as possible.
There are many adults who have lived with this issue their entire lives. It is never too late to consult with Dr. Halpern, to have an otoplasty and to see how he can help improve your life and your self-esteem with ear surgery.
Older patients who are seeing their ears get longer, larger, perhaps misshapen or out of proportion due to the aging process, can have Dr. Halpern perform cosmetic earlobe surgery on them to return their ears to a more pleasing appearance. This surgery can be performed by itself or in conjunction with a face lift.
