Ear surgery, or Otoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the appearance of the ear. People with protruding or enlarged ears may be self-conscious about the appearance of their ears, and sometimes are teased as children. Often patients have improved self-confidence following otoplasty. Dr. Martin’s experience allows him to achieve a natural, improved appearance of the ear.
What Can Be Done?
The most common patient concern is that their ears protrude too far from their head. Setback otoplasty improves protruding ears. This is achieved by reshaping the ear cartilage to hold the ear closer to the head. Sometimes the earlobe shape and position is a concern and this can also be improved with surgery. Surgery can be performed in children after the age of 6, once the ears have achieved full size, and in adults. Dr. Martin takes special care in executing cosmetic ear procedures so that he achieves an attractive, pleasing look for his patients.
