Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, is a surgical procedure used to modify the shape, size, and position of the ear. Otoplasty can be used for cosmetic purposes, such as to reposition protruding ears, or for reconstructive purposes, such as to correct misshapen ears caused by injury or present from birth. Most healthy adults and children over age five are candidates for otoplasty if they have ear defects or characteristics that are bothersome or otherwise a source of insecurity and dissatisfaction.
At Wellspring Plastic Surgery, we use otoplasty to facilitate a natural-looking ear contour that is anatomically balanced. Our patients find that by correcting even the smallest ear deformities, they can achieve greater self-confidence and aesthetic satisfaction. In addition to treating protruding ears and ear deformities, our surgeons can also evaluate and correct the outcome of a prior ear surgery that did not provide adequate results.
If you live in Austin or the surrounding area, schedule a consultation with our surgeons to determine whether you are a good candidate for this procedure.
