Description

This 45-year-old man wanted to improve the appearance of his overly prominent ears.  He had had 2 previous otoplasty surgeries elsewhere, and still was not happy with the appearance of his ears.  Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman treated him with a revision otoplasty, or ear-shaping surgery; the patient’s procedure was performed in the office, with the help of laughing gas and injectable numbing medicine.  He is shown here with excellent healing progress 3 months after treatment.

About Otoplasty Procedure

Prominent or “stuck-out” ears can be a source of peer ridicule and teasing both for adults and children.  While protruding or misshapen ears may be corrected with non-surgical newborn correction, surgical correction is required for older children and adults.  Our facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman performs otoplasty surgery to correct abnormally protruding or misshapen ears, treating both children and adults. Otoplasty commonly involves the shaping of the ear cartilage and tucking the ear closer to a more aesthetically pleasing position with the head and facial outline.  Dr. Fishman does otoplasty surgery as a standalone procedure, or commonly combines it with rhinoplasty or blepharoplasty.
