Ears that are too big or stick out too much draw focus away from other facial features. To balance out the face and bring the focus back to where it should be, plastic surgeons will perform otoplasty surgery, otherwise known as ear alteration surgery.
In many otoplasties, a cut will be created behind your ear, providing access to the cartilaginous tissue. The plastic surgeon will trim away excess cartilage and skin tissues and then reposition and reshape the remaining tissue. Finally, any incisions will be closed with sutures.
An otoplasty can make life easier and give you the look you’ve always wanted, so come in to plan yours with the help of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Beth Collins. The experienced perspective Dr. Collins offers will make planning your otoplasty easy and fulfilling. Arrange a consultation by contacting our office.
