What is Otoplasty?

Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, can improve the shape, position or ear proportion. Otoplasty can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present by the birth that becomes apparent with development or it can treat deformed ears caused by injury.

Ear surgery creates a natural shape, it is bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of minor deformities can have profound benefits to appearance and self-esteem. If protruding or disfigured ears bother you or to your child, you may consider plastic surgery.

Ear surgery can treat specifically:

  • Too big ears — a rare condition called macrotia.
  • Protruding ears may occur on one or both sides in diferents degrees — not associated with hearing loss.
  • Adult dissatisfaction with previous ear surgery.
  • Dr. Maurice Aceves is a highly qualified and experienced board certified plastic surgeon with over 15 years of experience.
