Ear Plastic Surgery
The ears play a significant role in your appearance. While the outer ear is designed to funnel sound into the inner ear, the shape has an aesthetic effect. If the ears are too big, too small or misshapen, they can be distracting and impact the facial balance. Ear plastic surgery focuses on the aesthetics of the ear while maintaining their main function. Dr. Aviva Preminger is a board certified plastic surgeon in Manhattan who offers advanced options in reshaping and reconstruction of the ears through plastic surgery.
The ears are one of the most challenging features to reshape. Comprised of cartilage, fatty tissue and skin, the conical shape and form has a purpose, but also impacts a person’s appearance. When the ears seem out of balance with the rest of the facial features, or they are damaged, plastic surgery can be a solution. Dr. Preminger offers both cosmetic ear reshaping and ear reconstruction to restore form and function to misshapen ears.
Cosmetic Ear Shaping and Reconstruction
Ear shape issues can be genetic or caused by birth defects – an estimated 30% of children are born with some type of ear malformation. Many people have very functional, well-formed ears but they may protrude or draw attention due to their size. Due to their position and adornments, ears are prone to injuries and trauma. Cosmetic surgery can be a solution to repair congenital, genetic or trauma concerns to obtain an attractive ear shape. Our cosmetic ear shaping procedures include:
Kids, teens and adults can be candidates for ear plastic surgery. Some cosmetic procedures are best performed early in life, while other cosmetic problems with ears may not occur until later in life. Dr. Preminger is a highly respected plastic surgeon that offers ear reshaping surgery for patients of all ages at her practice in Manhattan.
If you are unhappy with your ear shape or you have a child with protruding ears, cosmetic surgery may be an option.
