Otoplasty, or plastic surgery of the ear, is performed to correct deformities or defects of the ear, and produce a more aesthetically pleasing and proportional shape and a more natural look. Otoplasty can improve the size and symmetry of your ears while having no effect on hearing ability.
Ear surgery can enhance your appearance and self esteem. If you are bothered by the size, shape, or protrusion of your ears, this procedure can help you. Ear surgery can give you a natural, symmetrical, balanced appearance by either pinning back your ears, changing their shape, or reducing their size.
Dr. Toriumi will examine your features and note your concerns. He will work with you to clarify what goals you can realistically expect from ear surgery.
