When you’re unhappy with the size and shape of your ears, it impacts more than your appearance. It can cause you to feel self-conscious and avoid taking pictures because of your looks. When this occurs, otoplasty is a corrective procedure that’s designed to improve the size, shape and appearance of your ears, creating a more appealing aesthetic outcome that you can be proud of.

Is ear surgery right for you?

Otoplasty isn’t for everyone. However, if you’re a candidate for the procedure, it can be a terrific way to renew your self-esteem and improve your looks. In general, our Beverly Hills patients request this procedure if they:

  • Possess overly large or misshapen ears
  • Are embarrassed by the appearance of their ears
  • Have asymmetrical ears
  • Possess genetic deformities
  • Are bullied because of their ears
  • Suffer from low self-esteem because of their appearance

In all of these cases, otoplasty has the ability to correct the physical imperfections that affect the ears, while simultaneously improving your confidence, self-esteem and quality of life.

Your initial consultation

If you think you want to do something about the appearance of your ears, your first step will be to schedule a consultation at the Roxbury Institute. During this meeting, we’ll assess how your ears relate to the rest of your facial features, as well as learn about the cosmetic outcome you’d like to achieve. We’ll talk to you about the various ways we can correct the problem, and review the risks and benefits of each option with you. We will then compose a custom treatment plan that we believe is in your best interest and will help you achieve a more attractive and proportionate overall appearance.

What to expect during ear surgery

As with all of the procedures we perform at The Roxbury Institute, your ear surgery will be customized to fit your unique needs and cosmetic goals. We will begin by administering anesthesia to keep you safe and comfortable throughout surgery. For adults and older teens, a local anesthetic is typically sufficient, while young children tend to be safer with general anesthesia.

Once you are sedated, we will begin the sculpting and reshaping process. To access the cartilage, we will create a precise incision behind each ear. We will then reshape the area, remove excess skin and cartilage, and reposition your ears so they rest more closely to the head. If your earlobes are too large, we will remove unwanted tissue in this area as well, carefully sculpting smaller and more proportionate structures.

Throughout this process, our plastic surgeons will be focused on creating more discreet and attractive ears that blend in with the rest of your facial features. In addition, we’ll take special care to ensure that the ears are set back symmetrically and the new contours we sculpt are smooth and even. In this way, we are able to create a final outcome that restores balance and harmony to your face – and looks completely natural.
