Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure that improves the shape, proportion or position of the ear. It is commonly used to correct protruding ears, overly large ears, or misshapen ears caused by congenital conditions or injury.
Improved Shape & Size
Otoplasty will bring balance and proportion to the ears by creating a natural shape. There are profound appearance and self-esteem benefits for those who correct even minor deformities. The procedure can be beneficial to people of all ages. During a consultation with Dr. Turner, the procedure will be reviewed, along with your goals and realistic expectations.
