Otoplasty, or ear surgery, offers the ability to change the shape and appearance of the ear in several ways. Through improving the shape, position and/or proportion of the ear, it can help to correct defects present at birth that slowly became apparent over time or to reshape ears damaged in accidents. The purpose of otoplasty is to recreate a natural, normal shape while bringing proportion and balance to the face.
In addition to otoplasty some people require ear lobe correction or repair. Whether the ear has experienced damage from large earrings or has become stretched due to different types of gauged ear jewelry, the demand for earlobe repair has rapidly increased in recent years. Through extensive experience correcting damaged earlobes on patients of all ages, our surgeons can help restore the natural appearance of your ears.
