Otoplasty Procedures

There are various techniques that a skilled facial plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills can use to change the way that your ears look. The technique selected will depend on the choice of the surgeon, your unique features, and the changes that you desire to have made.

Otoplasty is the term that is used to refer to surgical reshaping of the ears, or ear surgery. You may want to consider having cosmetic surgery done to your ears if they are overly large or small, if they protrude too much, if they are not positioned properly or symmetrically, or if one or both of your ears were otherwise damaged or misshapen.

For ear surgery, incisions can be made inside of the ear or outside of the ear. In either case, the surgeon will attempt to hide incisions within natural folds or creases so that they will not be so obvious. Depending on the changes that are to be made, the surgeon may remove skin or other soft tissue and sutures. Cartilage can be reshaped, sutured, removed, or grafted in order to achieve the desired results. Your surgeon will let you know what to expect before you have your surgery done.
