Many patients can become dissatisfied with the shape or size of the ears. When the ears are too prominent it can cause a disproportionate appearance in relation to the rest of the face. Large, oversized ears can be distracting, and cause dissymmetry when compared to the face. There can be different reasons for abnormality in the ears, and the surgical technique used depends on the shape of the ear. Otoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that can be used to reconstruct the outer ear structure while altering the size and position of the ears. This procedure typically involves making an incision behind the ear, reconstructing, and positioning the ear shape to gain a more natural look.
Patients who desire to enhance the appearance of the ears may be a candidate for Otoplasty. Some patients seek an Otoplasty procedure to reduce the size of the ears, while others may want to reconstruct the ear shape. Whether concerns pertain to the size, or shape of the ear, a consultation appointment with our team at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery & Anti-Aging can determine if an Otoplasty is a good fit for you.
The cost will depend on how extensive your procedure will be. At your free consultation, our surgeon will take your goals, and current ear shape into consideration when calculating the cost.
