If the size, shape, or position of your ears bother you, ear surgery may improve your self-confidence and the balance of your face. Children are generally candidates for ear surgery if they are healthy (without chronic ear infections), have enough ear cartilage for correction (usually after the age of 5), and can understand and articulate their feelings about surgery without the coaxing of adults. Adults should be healthy, non-smokers, and have realistic goals for surgery.
Incisions, whenever possible, are made on the back of the ear. If an incision on the front of the ear is necessary, Dr. Nima will place it in the natural fold of the ear so it is hidden. During otoplasty, the rim of the ear and the cartilage is adjusted to reduce the size of the ear and/or reposition the ear.
