Ear Surgery

Protruding ears are not something you have to live with. Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear. It can correct a birth defect in the ear that becomes more noticeable with age or caused by injury. Ear surgery creates a natural shape, while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of even minor deformities can have profound benefits to appearance and self-esteem.
