Otoplasty

Ear Reconstruction / Earlobe Reduction

Ears that are too large or protrude too far out are easily corrected with an otoplasty, or ear pinning procedure. Dr. Paul believes that ear surgery should bring balance and proportion to the face in a natural and appealing way.


Approach

An otoplasty corrects ears or earlobes that are deformed from birth or injury, are too large or asymmetrical, are cosmetically damaged from long-term earring wear, or protrude too far out from the head. Dr. Paul understands that patients seeking this sort of surgery battle with the confidence of wearing their hair back or short. For this reason, Dr. Paul focuses on sculpting ears and earlobes that are apart of that natural beauty of the face but do not distract or stand out from the overall appeal.

Symmetry, shape and proportion are the most important considerations when correcting the external ear. Since every face is different, Dr. Paul tailors ear repair to meet the concerns and facial structure of each patient.

Procedure

While the phrase ‘ear pinning’ is commonly used, the reality of the procedure is quite different and involves no pins. Dr. Paul performs an otoplasty procedure by sculpting ear cartilage into a more appealing shape with sutures, which creates natural looking results that do not showcase any signs of repair or modification.  Earlobe repair does not involve any cartilage reshaping and is solely a correction of the soft tissue of the ear lobe.  If you are interested in external ear surgery, Dr. Paul will thoroughly explain the best options for correction of your specific concern.

Review:

Dr Paul is excellent

Dr Paul is great. I highly recommend him. He is thorough, explained everything well and followed up, personally calling me to ask how I was doing. He rebuilt my ear and it looks like nothing happened. To read more: click here
