PLASTIC SURGERY LUBBOCK PARENTS CONSIDER FOR THEIR CHILDREN

Lubbock plastic surgery

 

Children are not always the cute little angels we like to think they are. Sadly, when a peer looks different, some children can become cruel bullies, not even realizing or caring about the emotional damage they inflict on each other. The internet is full of stories about once energetic children bubbling over with personality who became withdrawn, unenthusiastic children trying not to draw attention to themselves. Our face is our first impression to the world. That impression can be difficult to overcome when a child has large ears. Usually, large ears are not a problem for a child until he or she starts school. Then the experiences of childhood and life are greatly affected when big ears are the center of all the jokes on the playground.

Plastic Surgery Lubbock Children and Adults Love

Otoplasty is plastic surgery that reshapes the ear. Maybe your child was born with protruding ears or ears that are too big for his or her head. Ear surgery can easily fix that. Ear procedures are relatively simple compared to other plastic surgeries, but the results for the patient’s appearance can be dramatic. With techniques to reduce the size of or reshape the ears, a child can immediately feel confident in his or her looks.

Are you a Candidate for Ear Surgery?

You could benefit from otoplasty surgery if you have:

  • Protruding ears
  • Ears that are too large for your face
  • Misshaped ears from an injury
  • Dissatisfaction from any previous ear surgery

You should be in general good health without any conditions that make healing difficult.

Ear surgery is low-risk and a comparatively easy plastic surgery. Lubbock patients also experience minimal scarring. But for such a simple surgery, it leaves big payoffs in the way of increased self-confidence. Ear surgery patients are the ones with biggest smiles when the procedure is finished. You can’t ask for more than a great surgery option performed but an outstanding surgeon. Dr. Rowley listens to the hopes and expectations of her patients, and with training, experience, and artistic skill gives her patients the results they hope for.

How do I Reduce the Appearance of Scars Following Plastic Surgery?

Have you always wanted plastic surgery but are worried about the resulting scars? While some scarring depends on genetics, type of surgery, and other factors outside of your control, there are many things you can do to mitigate scarring post surgery. Don’t let a fear of scarring keep you from pursuing your goals of plastic surgery. Lubbock patients can rely on Dr. Jane Rowley of Rowley Plastic Surgery and  her extensive expertise during the procedure to keep scars minimal from the start. Here are a few things you can do after surgery.

1. Natural Remedies

Remedies such as St. John’s wort, aloe vera, vitamin E, and shea or cocoa butter may all reduce scarring and promote healthy skin. Massage can also help by stimulating healthy blood flow to the healing area and reducing the build-up of scar tissue below the surface of the skin. Be sure, however, to check with your doctor to learn when you can begin massaging topical ointment after plastic surgery. Lubbock patients can rely on Dr. Rowley for expert advice and aftercare.

2. Over The Counter (OTC) Remedies

There are many OTC remedies for scarring. Sunscreen of SPF 15 or higher should be your first line of defense against scarring. Creams, lotions, oils, and silicone sheets can help reduce scarring and help keep your skin healthy and moisturized, though some should be used during healing and some shouldn’t be used until the wound has closed. Check with your surgeon on timing.

3. Procedures

Lastly, there are in-office procedures you can pursue to reduce scarring from plastic surgery. Lubbock patients can ask Dr. Jane Rowley for more information on these procedures, such as laser skin resurfacing, Kenalog injections, IPL (intense pulsed light), microdermabrasion, surgical revision, or radiation.
