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.
