Ear Surgery - Otoplasty

Large, disproportionate ears can detract from the appearance of your entire head. For both children and adults, ears that protrude from the side of your head can leave you feeling awkward and self-conscious. Unlike other parts of your body that can be covered with clothing, your ears are one of your most prominent features. Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, performed by one of our Detroit area board-certified plastic surgeons can help bring your ears into perfect alignment with the rest of your head and restore your self-confidence.

Otoplasty Methods

Otoplasty, also known as “ear pinning” is not a complex surgical procedure but it requires the skilled hands of an experienced plastic surgeon to provide optimal results. Depending on the size and shape of your ears, we may suggest either a reshaping of the cartilage or an ear reduction procedure.

Through reshaping the cartilage, one of our plastic surgeons can provide you with a look that is balanced to your other facial features. Ear reduction surgery reshapes the cartilage but also removes excess skin from around the ear and ear lobe to reduce the appearance of excessively large ears.

These methods are proven safe and effective for adults and children alike. Children in particular experience teasing and name calling due to large ears. Ear surgery can be performed on children beginning at six years of age to help eliminate the negative impact an awkward appearance can have on their self-esteem.

When you come to us for an otoplasty procedure, you will be in the hands of a board-certified plastic surgeon who uses proven methods to provide exceptionally beautiful results.

Although ear surgery is a safe procedure with very few potential complications, we perform the procedure at accredited hospitals or surgical centers to ensure your absolute safety. Our devotion to quality patient care means one of our surgeons will work with you from your initial consultation through your full recovery to make sure the end result of your otoplasty provide symmetry and beauty for a life-time.
