When ears are too large or prominent, they can be distracting. If the first thing people notice about you is not your beautiful eyes or smile but your protruding ears, you may want them corrected. If you or your child have ears that are malformed, large or prominent, there are options to fix their shape. Dr. Gary Linkov at City Facial Plastics in NYC offers prominent ear correction for patients unhappy with their ear shape or size.

In most cases, ears are an afterthought. Unless, they protrude or are an odd shape, most people do not notice slight differences the ears. However, when they seem unbalanced with the rest of the head and face, it is hard not to notice. Plastic surgery can be used to reshape, resize or pin the ears closer to the head, helping them blend with the other facial features.

Surgical Ear Deformity Alterations

Reshaping and resizing ear deformities are one of the more difficult plastic surgery techniques. Ears are a unique shape and require artistic skill as well as surgical expertise to change. Dr. Linkov is an experienced facial plastic surgeon with exceptional skill and artistic talent. He can ensure that the delicate cartilage of malformed ears is shaped into the desired form to create ears that blend with the other features.

Children with ear deformities can face a childhood of teasing and cruel jokes. Plastic surgery can be performed on children to reshape ears at around age six. This can help them feel more confident when they begin building relationships with their peers in school and social activities.

If you are interested in learning more about plastic surgery to correct an ear deformity or to minimize the appearance of prominent ears, contact us to schedule your consultation with Dr. Linkov. City Facial Plastics is located on the Upper East Side in Manhattan.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!

Rachel G.
