Ear Surgery Correction for Ear Deformities
Dr. Jacob Boeckmann is a double-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has extensive experience in correcting a number of ear deformities. Some of the common indications for ear surgery correction include:
Prominent Ears (Prominauris)
Prominent ears can be a source of great distress for individuals of all ages. For children, disproportionately large ears can result in lowered self-esteem and make them a target for bullies. Adults may go to great lengths to hide their ears out of embarrassment. In these cases, an otoplasty procedure can be an ideal solution. This specialized procedure involves improving the appearance of large, protruding ears, so patients of all ages can enjoy a symmetrical and attractive overall appearance.
Torn or stretched earring openings are commonly the result of trauma or stretching.
Enlarged earlobes are common in patients as a result of aging and/or the result of wearing heavy earrings over time.
The goal of earlobe repair whenever possible, is to create a more youthful and natural-looking earlobe that can support earrings again after the healing process.
