Other Aspects to Consider
While going through the process of choosing the right plastic surgeon for otoplasty, a patient can consider personal referrals from friends or family to assess their experience with the surgeon. The patient should also review the surgeon’s website to learn more about their practice and check for any patient reviews and ratings that may be available online.
