EAR RESHAPING (OTOPLASTY)

Whether it’s due to a congenital deformity such as “protrusive ears” or as a result of trauma, ear tissue can be modified to improve the size, shape, prominence, and overall appearance of the ears. Otoplasty can create a more natural shape to the ear while bringing the ears and face into balance and proportion. Dr. Clark has found that the correction of even minor malformations can provide significant benefits to a patient’s appearance and self-esteem.

WHAT CAN EAR SURGERY TREAT?
    • A condition called macrotia, which is a congenital ear deformity that is marked by ears that are oversized and not in proportion to the head.
    • Protruding ears, sometimes only on one side, or it can occur on both sides, in varying degrees.
    • Trauma to the ears occurs as a result of an accident, burn, or bite.
    • Adults who are unhappy with previous ear surgery and wish to refine their results.
OPTIONS

Ear surgery can be carried out under local anesthesia in the office, or under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia in an outpatient or hospital setting. Dr. Clark will discuss the best option for you and your particular situation.
