Well-shaped ears are ones that usually go unnoticed. But having ears that are large, misshapen, or that stick out too far can be a problem for many, eroding a person’s self-esteem over a lifetime. Children with protruding ears are often subjected to teasing by peers; teens and adults can become withdrawn and self-conscious about the appearance of their ears.

You can give your child, or even yourself, a new lease on life with a simple ear pinning procedure, known as an otoplasty, at the office of Jose Rodríguez-Feliz, MD. Our patients appreciate our highly skilled and experienced team who are experts at producing natural-looking improvements.

Corrective ear surgery is generally an outpatient procedure, performed under some form of anesthesia so that you are comfortable and pain free during the process. We use otoplasty to successfully treat a variety of ear irregularities and deformities including:

  • prominent, large ears
  • ears with unusual folds and shapes
  • ears with tumors
  • ears with defects from trauma or piercings
  • ears with problems related to previous surgical attempts
  • ears that were distorted from facelift surgery

The goal of otoplasty is to improve the appearance of the ears and to provide a well-proportioned look to the face overall. The specific technique used will determine the location of the incisions and the resulting scars. After making the incisions, we’ll remove excess cartilage and skin, fold the cartilage into the proper position, and secure it with internal stitches.

At the office of Jose Rodríguez-Feliz, MD, we’re dedicated to making you look and feel your best. During your initial consultation with us, you will have the opportunity to discuss your cosmetic goals and we’ll explain how we can achieve them for you.
