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 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.
