Improve the Appearance of your Ears at Fine Arts Skin & Laser Facial Plastic Surgery
Are you uncomfortable with the size, shape, or overall appearance of your ears? There’s a simple surgical method that can correct these issues and improve your confidence — otoplasty.
What is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty is a type of surgery used to improve the shape, proportion, or position of one or both ears. It can be used to correct both defects that have been present since a person’s birth and those caused by the injury. Because issues with ear appearance affect people of all ages, this procedure is performed on children (age 5 and older), teenagers, and adults.
By undergoing this surgical procedure, patients can improve the appearance of:
Mistakes from previous ear surgeries
Other ear deformities and abnormalities

"WHAT TO DO WITH HANGING FAT In 2020, my Bill lost 60 pounds. He was left with a flap of fat drooping over his belt. Exercise had no effect -- the extra skin continued to hang. Bill's forehead lines had grown deep. Looking for the perfect 17th anniversary gift for him, I surprised Bill with a Dr. Hartman consultation. The following week, Dr. Hartman performed a major tummy tuck with beaucoup liposuction on Bill, all done awake. Bill walked out after his tummy tuck procedure: his hanging flap of fat was gone and his abdomen was firm. On that same day, and also while awake, Dr. Hartman lifted Bill's brow, completely obliterating Bill's decades-worth of forehead wrinkles. Dr. Hartman performed these procedures with ease and skill. Despite that Dr. Hartman removed a ginormous chuck of belly fat, Bill had no pain during the surgeries and no pain at home. Bill looks 20 years younger. No one can tell he's had surgery. Friends peer closely at Bill, searching for that which is different about him: new haircut, hipper glasses? I can see them thinking: what is it? Bill looks fabulously youthful but no one can tell why. Dr. Hartman's surgery has greatly increased Bill's self-confidence and body image. Dr. Hartman and his staff made Bill's tummy tuck and brow lift surgery an easy and affordable procedure."- J.M. / Google / Jun 28, 2021
What Are the Benefits of This Procedure?
The appearance of a person’s ears can affect the way the world reacts to him/her. Having large, protruding, or otherwise abnormal ears can be a difficult issue, especially in younger children. Peers can be particularly cruel during formative years.
Otoplasty can improve self-confidence, regardless of age. Correcting ear shape can also improve a person’s overall appearance and add a more pleasing symmetry.
Am I a Candidate for Otoplasty?
Nearly anyone, of age 5 years and older, interested in improving the shape or proportion of the ears is a potential candidate for an otoplasty procedure. However, patients must be healthy non-smokers without any ear infections to be considered. If you are thinking about having your child undergo an otoplasty procedure, it’s important that they are well-behaved enough to follow both pre-and post-procedure care directions.
Before you or someone you love undergoes an otoplasty procedure, you must first schedule a consultation with Dr. David Hartman. During this appointment, he will examine the ears, discuss with you the options, and help you decide if this procedure is a good choice.
