Beautifully reshape and refine the ears with ear surgery

Candidates for our San Diego otoplasty surgery (ear surgery) include any adult or child with prominent or misshaped ears. The most common reason for this procedure is to correct protruding ears.

Prominent ears are a result of a variety of different anatomic configurations, however the two most common reasons ears are prominent are due to the lack of an anti-helical fold and over-sized cartilage.

The general treatment considerations are to identify the source or reason for the prominence and then to treat the specific finding. In some cases it requires creation of the anti-helical fold while in other cases it requires setting the ear back closer to the head. In many cases, it requires both techniques.
