Ear Reshaping (Otoplasty)

About Ear Surgery and its Benefits

Are you considering ear reshaping? Los Angeles County plastic surgeon Dr. Hsu may be able to help. Ear surgery (otoplasty) is a common form of plastic surgery in children and adults who would like to correct protruding ears, missing parts of ears, or ear deformities. These may occur due to birth defects or physical trauma, such as a sports accident or car accident. Ear surgery is best performed at a young age. Ears are most often fully developed by the time a child turns 4 years old, and although there are no additional risks associated with performing otoplasty later in life, the ear cartilage in a young patient's ears will typically be very pliable and therefore easier to mold. Correcting any ear deformity at an early age can also protect a child from ridicule while he or she is growing up.

What Can Ear Surgery Correct?

Ear surgery can correct numerous different problems, and even more advanced procedures are constantly developed that restore form and function in an aesthetic way. Following are some of the issues ear surgery may address:

  • Protruding ears
  • Excessive ear cartilage
  • Deformed earlobes
  • Lop ear - where the tip of the ear bends down and forward
  • Ears that are very small or do not have natural curves or creases
  • Missing ear
  • Missing part of an ear

If you would like to learn more about ear reshaping, we recommend that you schedule a consultation as soon as possible. At this time, Dr. Hsu can examine the structure of the ears and discuss what concerns you have and what results you would like to achieve. Bellavita Center helps clients throughout Los Angeles County and also in Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Sherman Oaks, Brentwood and the surrounding areas.
