If you hate your ears, you may be a candidate for otoplasty, plastic surgery for the outer ear. Otoplasty will improve the shape of the ear if they have developed too prominently or have become misshapen as a result of injury.

Ear surgery creates a natural shape, while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of even minor deformities can have profound benefits to appearance and self-esteem.

Setback or pinback Otoplasty is the most frequently performed procedure for reconstruction of prominent or protruding ears. The normal result of an Otoplasty is a reconstructed or reshaped ear that resembles a normal ear (or the patient’s other ear) more closely. In a setback Otoplasty, the normal result is an ear that lies closer to the patient’s head without an overcorrected, “pinned-back” look.

If protruding or disfigured ears bother you or your child, you may consider Burbank Plastic Surgery for plastic surgery.

Earlobe repair or enhancement

Repairing large earring holes that make it difficult to wear earrings is a commonly requested procedure. Over time earring holes can stretch and become too large, in some cases they may actually tear through the earlobe. Some people want to close the holes in the earlobes caused by wearing dilators /gauges.

At Burbank Plastic Surgery we have extensive experience dealing with all of the issues involving the earlobes. Surgical correction is an office procedure performed using only local anesthetic. The recovery is quick with most people returning to their usual activities the following day. Many are able to pierce their earlobes a few months after repair.

Earlobe lift or reduction

Earlobes change over time. Earlobes thin, stretch and droop as we get older. In some people these changes are noticeable. The solution is an earlobe reduction and/or lift. Earlobe surgery is performed using local anesthesia. The procedure is short with a quick recovery. The specific details of the procedure vary between individuals depending on how much needs to be performed.
