The size and shape of our ears can often play an integral role in self-confidence and body image. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your ears, either because they are overly large, protruding, you are dissatisfied with the results from a previous ear surgery, or if you are unhappy with them for any other reason not related to a hearing issue, you may be seeking out an ear surgery procedure. At Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics in Midtown West, Manhattan, and New Hyde Park in Long Island, the surgical team can help you adjust the shape and size of your ear so that you can feel more confident and radiant. To find out if ear surgery is a good option for you, request an appointment by phone or online at either our New York City or Long Island office today.
Otoplasty Q & A
What is Ear Surgery?
Known as an otoplasty, ear surgery helps to reshape and reposition the ears so that the ear is proportionate to the rest of your face and body. Many women and men may feel insecure if they have a misshapen ear due to an injury or birth defect, but it is not something they need to live with. Ear surgery can correct the ear so that it is a size, shape and proportion that appears natural for the individual patient.
What Does Ear Surgery Treat?
Otoplasty can be performed to treat:
- Macrotia - Overly large ears
- Protruding ears
- Issues with a previous ear surgery
- Misshapen ear due to an injury or birth defect
- Dissatisfaction with the cosmetic appearance of the ear
- Ear positioning and proportion
