Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. This is often performed on children after the age of four, but many adults opt to have ear surgery to rectify life-long concerns and improve their self-image.
Earlobe repair is also a commonly requested surgery. Whether it is to address thinning earlobes, torn earlobes (from earrings), or to correct the dilated earlobe left after ear gauging, this in office procedure can have positive effects on body image as well as employment and professional considerations.
Otoplasty is a sensitive procedure that is best performed by a surgeon with specialized training in the field, as ears are facial features with a lot of visibility from long distances, and repositioning or reshaping them requires attention to detail and predicting external forces on the ears. While no surgery can predict perfect symmetry (and no person is perfectly symmetrical), Dr. Kundaria is able to provide his patients with all of the information that they will need to make the most informed decision.
