Frequently Asked Questions about Ear Refinement in Denver, CO
At what age can ear refinement be performed in Lone Tree?
An ear refinement can be performed at any age after five years old when the cartilage is stable. Many corrective ear refinements are performed on children before their ears are fully developed.
Will an ear refinement procedure affect my hearing?
No, an otoplasty procedure will have no affect on your hearing since it only treats the outer section of the ear.
How long is the recovery period?
There is little to no downtime associated with an ear refinement surgery. We keep patients in recovery for at least one hour after the procedure to ensure vital signs are good. Once released, patients must protect their ears for about one week as they heal, but daily activities may be resumed gradually.
Will my insurance cover an otoplasty?
Unfortunately, most insurance companies view ear refinement surgery as an aesthetic procedure and will not provide coverage.
