Our team of plastic surgeons has years of experience and excellence performing ear surgeries.
Otoplasty, or cosmetic ear surgery, is an aesthetic surgical procedure designed to alter the appearance of the ear. This procedure, also known as cosmetic ear surgery can achieve a number of different objectives including repositioning the ears closer to the head (a procedure known as ear pinning), reducing the size of large ears, or reshaping bends in the cartilage.
The ears may be more prominent for several reasons: they may be pushed outward by thick cartilage behind the ear, or the ear may have a cupped shape causing them to curve outward rather than bending backward toward the head. Cosmetic ear surgery is designed to fix these issues resulting in ears that meet your cosmetic goals.
