Correction of Protruding Ears (Otoplasty)

Children, five years or older, and adults can have their ear positioning corrected. The objective of the plastic surgeon in this procedure is to permanently recontour the pliable ear cartilage. Dr. Daniel Golshani accomplishes this aim by sculpting and reshaping the cartilage through hidden incisions on the back of the surface of the ears.

How common is this procedure?

The repositioning of protruding ears is the most common type of ear surgery performed. Moreover, Dr. Golshani's patients who have requested this procedure are highly satisfied with the outcome of their surgery and express how fulfilled they feel with the accomplishment of their goals. Even when patients have only one ear that appears to protrude, ear surgery may be performed on both ears to achieve a balanced result. The goal of the surgery is not necessarily to create a symmetric result, but to create an ear as normal as possible in structure and proportion relative to a patient's other facial features.

Where do I begin?

Whether you are dissatisfied with an unnatural appearance, or you feel that your ears appear to protrude or are sharply pinned back, a consultation with Dr. Daniel Golshani is your first step. Dr. Golshani's consultations are designed to fully educate potential patients. Consultations typically include an evaluation of your individual case, a discussion of your primary concerns, the options available for surgery of the ears, the possible outcomes of surgery, risks or potential complications, and the course of treatment that may be most beneficial to you.

In addition, you will be asked to sign consent forms to assure Dr. Golshani that you fully understand the procedure that you will undergo and any potential risks or complications related to your procedure.
