EAR RESHAPING OVERVIEW

If protruding or disfigured ears bother you or your child, you may consider plastic surgery. 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 that becomes apparent as a child grows, or it can treat misshapen ears caused by injury.

Along with other procedures, such as rhinoplasty or facelifts, ear surgery creates a natural shape, bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of even minor deformities can have profound benefits to appearance and self-esteem.

Specifically ear surgery can treat:

  • Protruding ears occurring on one or both sides in varying degrees
  • Dissatisfaction with previous ear surgery
  • Overly large ears
  • Long or stretched out ear lobes
  • Torn earlobes

UNDERSTANDING THE PROCEDURE

Patients often try to hide prominent ears by wearing longer hair, but this can be a problem for boys with shorter hair or for either girls or boys when swimming and the hair is wet. Some patients are self conscious about their ears even if they don’t protrude, because they appear too large in relation to the face. Often, earlobes have become longer with age, or earring holes have torn, leaving the earlobe unsightly.

At Alexander Cosmetic Surgery, we perform ear reshaping surgery on a regular basis. Patients are very happy and have an increase in self esteem when they fix a problem that is very visible.

Prominent ears require the surgeon to remove and reshape cartilage. Dr. Alexander Sr. invented a surgical instrument to reshape ear cartilage that is widely used by nearly all surgeons performing this procedure. Dr. Alexander II has developed a very successful and innovative technique to reduce the appearance of large, prominent ears by removing cartilage in a way that is essentially scar-free. Problems related to the earlobe, such as size and tears, can be easily fixed in minutes with a local anesthetic.
