Ear surgery/earlobe repair

If large or misshapen ears are bothering you, ear surgery can be a simple way to improve self-esteem and remove your focus from this facial feature. Also called otoplasty, ear surgery can change the size of the ears, fix ear tips that fold down or forward, or "shell ears" which lack the natural folds and creases characteristic of a typical ear. Surgery can also address large, stretched or wrinkled earlobes.

Ear surgery can be done anytime after the ear is fully grown. It can greatly improve self-esteem. Ear surgery involves removing or resculpting the ear cartilage to achieve your desired look. In some cases, non-removable stitches are used to reshape the ear. Typically the surgery leaves a small scar behind the ear which will fade over time.
