Pediatric Plastic Surgery (otoplasty)

This is a long shot, but does anyone have any recommendations for a pediatric surgeon who performs otoplasties ear (to correct lop ears with floppy pinna)?

Re: Pediatric Plastic Surgery (otoplasty)

  • Florida, but we can travel.
  • I just wanted to say good for you for considering it.  I know many people consider it taboo but I have one ear that has a congential malformation that needs a unilateral otoplasty.  I'm 28, I refuse to wear my hair up and WILL get it fixed as soon as we can!
    DD1(4):VSD & PFO (Closed!), Prenatal stroke, Mild CP, Delayed pyloric opening/reflux, Brachycephaly & Plagiocephaly, Sacral lipoma, Tethered spinal cord, Compound heterozygous MTHFR, Neurogenic bladder, Urinary retention & dyssynergia, incomplete emptying, enlarged Bladder with Poor Muscle Tone, EDS-Type 3. Mito-Disorder has been mentioned

    DD2(2.5): Late term premie due to PTL, low fluid & IUGR, Reflux, delayed visual maturation, compound heteroygous MTHFR, PFAPA, Bilateral kidney reflux, Transient hypogammaglobulinemia, EDS-Type 3

  • For DS, we have always known we would do it, it is both ears and it means he needs a special strap to keep his hearing aids and glasses secured. Also, I don't care about people who have something critical to say about it, especially since most have never faced the issue.
    Will your insurance cover any of the cost?
