- Dr. Inessa Fishman
This 30-year-old woman was bothered by the excess prominence of her ears, and never wore her hair up due to feeling self-conscious. Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman treated her with otoplasty surgery to reshape her ears and bring them closer to the head. The patient is shown 5 months after surgery with a great outcome and very good healing progress.
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.
