Details for Case #11437
This 26-year-old woman was bothered by large, uneven ears that had always been overly prominent. They caused her face to look unbalanced and wider than it really was, so she sought a skilled cosmetic surgeon that could help achieve her goals. After scheduling a consultation and meeting with one of the surgeons at the Beverly Hills area cosmetic surgery offices of Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, this woman was confident that a bilateral otoplasty would most effectively give her ears a more flattering position while maintaining a natural look.
Many patients are concerned about their ears looking “pulled back” after surgery, but the thoroughly qualified surgeons at Marina Plastic Surgery strive for excellent, natural looking results. Otoplasty works by re-sculpting ear cartilage through a small incision at the back of the ear, bending it back toward the head, and suturing the incision closed. While this procedure is most often performed on younger children, it carries no additional risk for adults who may also want to correct malpositioned ears.
This woman is overjoyed with the results of her otoplasty near Pasadena. Facial plastic surgery by our surgeons significantly enhanced the appearance of this woman’s whole face simply by repositioning her ears. Her face now looks slimmer and much more balanced, emphasizing her attractive eyes.
