Ear Surgery in San Diego
Otoplasty is the reshaping of the ears, correcting ears that protrude noticeably from the sides of the head. Protruding ears can result in psychological trauma to children who endure teasing by their peers. Adults are not immune to the embarrassment of protruding ears, either. Reshaping of the ears can provide emotional and cosmetic benefits at any age.
To reposition the ears closer to the sides of the head, our La Jolla ear surgery specialists will reshape the ears through small incisions behind the ears. Children may be candidates for this procedure by the age of six, when ear growth is largely complete.
If you or your child is feeling self-conscious due to prominent ears, please contact the Umansky Medical Center for Plastic Surgery today to schedule a one-on-one consultation. Our dedicated, compassionate La Jolla otoplasty specialists will help you determine if ear surgery might help you or your child achieve a more proportionate ear appearance.
