Ear Procedures

Whether you have protruding ears, split earlobes, or enlarged earlobes, ear surgery or otoplasty is an outpatient procedure that can provide much joy and satisfaction for many.

Protruding ears can make one feel self-conscious and for many women, a reason to never wear their hair up. Children are frequently teased for protruding ears and otoplasty is a common procedure before they enter school.

A torn earlobe due to heavy earring use, large looped earrings, or trauma can easily be repaired in the office and re-pierced at a later time. Women love their earrings and to be able to wear the earrings and loops you once did provides so much joy.

An enlarged or elongated earlobe can be shortened with an earlobe reduction. Long, thin earlobes can be a sure sign of aging while a smaller and fuller earlobe is more youthful.

Gauged earlobes are more difficult to correct as the earlobe has been significantly thinned and stretched. Many seek repair after growing tired of wearing these gauged earrings.


Otoplasty or ear pinning is a type of cosmetic ear surgery. This procedure reshapes the ear creating new folds and bringing the ear closer to the side of the head.

Earlobe Reduction

The goal in earlobe reduction is to reshape the earlobe into a smaller size while retaining the natural curved appearance of the earlobe itself.

Earlobe Repair

Plastic surgery to repair a torn earlobe is a frequent occurrence. The procedure consists of "freshening" the edges of the split and placement of sutures to complete the repair of the earlobe.
