Having overly prominent ears that stick out from your head can make anyone self-conscious regardless of age. For this reason, many adults and children seek otoplasty, or corrective ear surgery, correcting the shape of the ear and bringing it closer to the head. Prominent ears are caused by a defect in the ear cartilage structure, which basically means that ear cartilage has failed to properly fold.
Earlobe surgery fixes stretched or torn earlobes requires working with the ear tissue to reconstruct the original shape of the earlobe.
With otoplasty, Dr. Casey can correct ear folds and improve the proportional and aesthetic relationship of the head and ears.
