About the Procedure
Ear surgery – also known as otoplasty – can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear. It can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury.
Are You a Candidate for Ear Surgery?
You may be a good candidate for this procedure if you have one or more of the following conditions:
- Overly large ears — a rare condition called macrotia
- Protruding ears occurring on one or both sides in varying degrees — not associated with hearing loss
- Adult dissatisfaction with previous ear surgery
- Hearing loss
Ear surgery offers almost immediate results in cases of protruding ears, visible when the dressings that support the new shape of the ear during initial phases of healing are removed. With the ear permanently positioned closer to the head, surgical scars are either hidden behind the ear or well hidden within the natural creases of the ear.
Ear surgery creates a natural shape, while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of even minor deformities can have profound benefits to appearance and self-esteem.
If protruding or disfigured ears bother you or your child, you may consider plastic surgery.
Due to patient confidentiality concerns, I do not have any before and after photos of facial surgery on my web site. During your consultation, I would be happy to show you before and after photos of patients who have provided their consent. Thank you for your understanding of my policy as your privacy is of the utmost importance to me.
