Ear Reshaping (Otoplasty)

For people who are concerned with the size and shape of their ears, Plastic Surgery Associates of Santa Rosa provides ear reshaping surgery to rebalance the look of protruding or misshapen ears.

The Ear Reshaping You Deserve

Some men and women in Santa Rosa have never heard of otoplasty (ear reshaping). As a result, they think they have no alternative but to hide their prominent ears under hats or hairstyles. The truth is the size and the shape of your ears can significantly affect your self-esteem, particularly for children.

Dr. Canales and I perform a reshaping procedure to improve the shape, position, and proportion of the ears while creating a more aesthetically balanced appearance. Whether the look of your ears is the result of genetics or an injury, Plastic Surgery Associates can help you achieve more natural looking ears that are perfectly sized and shaped for your facial features.

Ear surgery can make a difference in the way people see you, and in the way you see yourself. At Plastic Surgery Associates, we are happy to discuss your options and offer valuable information so that you can make an educated choice.
