Ears that protrude or have a disproportionate size or shape can cause intense feelings of self-consciousness.
Otoplasty can permanently change the shape, size, and position of your ears.
Why should I consider otoplasty?
How will my surgeon change the dimensions of my ears?
Show me some reults...
Otoplasty by an experienced surgeon can provide significant enhancement and natural-looking results.
By age 5, cartilage can withstand surgical enhancement.
Candidates can safely undergo surgery, are non-smokers, and are free of ear infection.
If any patient - especially a young child - is uncomfortable with surgery, otoplasty may not be an appropriate solution.
Otoplasty cannot make you look like a different person or automatically prevent others from mistreating you due to your appearance. It can boost your confidence, enhance your appearance, and discourage unwanted attention.
Tell me more about what happens during surgery...
An outpatient procedure, cosmetic ear surgery takes about one hour per ear.
Patients can usually go back to school or work inside of a week. Total recovery takes about six weeks.
