Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

Otoplasty or Ear Surgery is performed to correct over-sized, misshapen, or overly protruding ears. A plastic surgeon can reposition and reshape the ears, ensuring that they are proportional to the rest of the facial features, and providing the recipient with the confidence they may have been lacking.

Otoplasty operations are very common these days, and we've collected exclusive ear surgery reviews and consumer ratings to help you with your research. If you've undergone ear surgery yourself already, please add your own review below. Or, if you're ready to take the next step, contact us to set up a consultation with a plastic surgeon offering ear surgery in your area.

"I was nervous at first about going though with this Otoplasty (Ear pinning) procedure. But the doctor and his staff assured me everything was going to be OK and that it was perfectly natural for me to feel nervous about it.

"It's been 3 years since my otoplasty and I'm still so pleased I underwent this procedure. My protruding ears have always bothered me and I'm so glad I wasn't stuck with them.

My surgery went well. was a total success as far as I'm concerned. Today, my ears aren't perfect-looking. I think the tops of my ears are a little elfish, and sometimes they tingle a bit if pressure is applied to them. But they absolutely look sooo much better than they did originally! " - Submitted by Emily C. of Missoula, MT
