The ears are an important part of facial symmetry and your overall appearance. Overly large ears, protruding ears or deformities of the ear can significantly change your look. Especially in children, large, prominent ears can be a source of self-consciousness. Whatever the age or indication, there is likely an ear surgery technique that can help you.
Ear surgery techniques are tailored to meet the specific needs of the patient. For example, if there is trauma and reconstruction is needed, sutures may be the only technique. However, if there is resizing to be done with conditions like prominent ears or macrotia or microtia (large or small ears), incisions may be necessary in the cartilage. An evaluation with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. K will help you determine what is right for you.
