Overview: Ear Surgery
Performed to correct the protruding ears of children and adults, otoplasty is performed to reshape or “pin back” protruding ears so that they appear normal and natural. Dr. Jonov offers ear reshaping and performs this surgery for Seattle area patients as young as 5 or 6 when ear growth is nearly complete. Though it can be performed on adults as well, otoplasty is most successful on younger patients with more malleable cartilage. Though the procedure is most commonly sought to correct protruding ears, otoplasty can also reshape ears, reduce them in size, or make them more symmetrical.
