Ear surgery performed by Dr. Sturm can improve the shape, symmetry, and overall appearance of your ears to enhance your overall facial harmony.
What Is Ear Surgery?
Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, is a cosmetic surgical procedure performed to enhance the overall appearance of the ears. The procedure, which is regularly performed on both children and adults, can be used to correct a variety of aesthetic issues with the ears. For example, otoplasty is frequently used to adjust ears that are disfigured or abnormally shaped. It can also be performed to treat ears that are asymmetrical or do not match the proportions of the patient’s face. In some cases, ear surgery is used to restore the appearance of the ears after physical injury.
The specifics of ear surgery will vary depending on the unique needs and preferences of the patient. In most cases, Dr. Sturm will carefully remove and/or adjust cartilage and skin to enhance the proportions and appearance of the ears. Depending on the patient’s goals, Dr. Sturm may also make subtle adjustments to the earlobes.
