Description

This 5-year-old girl presented with overly prominent ears, a feature present in her family.  Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Fishman treated her with otoplasty, or surgical ear shaping, to place the ears closer to the head.  The patient is shown 1 month after surgery, with great healing progress; the ears will continue to improve in their appearance and position as swelling resolves over the next few months.
