If you have had a defect in your ear structure since birth or experienced an injury that caused a misshapen ear, ear surgery, also known as an otoplasty, can improve the shape, position or proportion.
We can create a natural shape and bring balance and proportion to your ears and face. Fixing even minor deformities can have profound beneﬁts to your appearance and self-esteem.
Specifically ear surgery can treat:
- Overly large ears — a rare condition called macrotia
- Protruding ears occurring on one or both sides in varying degrees — not associated with hearing loss
- Adult dissatisfaction with previous ear surgery
If you're considering an ear surgery, this outline will give you a basic understanding of the procedure when it can help, how it's performed, and what results you can expect. It can't answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on the individual patient and the surgeon. Dr. Walker is more than happy to clarify any misunderstandings, please contact her office with any questions or concerns you may have.
