Do you hide your ears? Do you avoid short haircuts or earrings that draw attention to your ears? Is your child teased at school because of prominent ears? Your ears are usually not a cosmetic concern unless they stick out or do not match. If you are self-conscious about your ears, surgery by Dr. David Magilke can help.
Otoplasty (cosmetic ear surgery) reshapes the ear cartilages and pins back prominent ears. It can also recreate natural anatomy, making mismatched ears look the same.
Are You A Candidate?
What may make you or your child a good candidate for Otoplasty:
- You or your child (6 years or older) have protruding ears.
- Your ears are uneven (one ear protrudes further out than the other).
- You have a desire to keep your hair long in order to hide your ears.
- You have a desire to avoid pulling your hair back behind the ears.
Results You Can Expect
Your ears are brought back into a natural position and no longer stick out.
Your incisions are hidden in the crease behind your ears, so you can cut your hair short or wear it back without signs of surgery.
The new shape to your ears is permanent.
