Ear Reshaping

Do you think your ears stick out too much? Do they seem too large for your head? Do you hide your ears under hats and hair?Dr. Stephen Kahler has a surgical solution for that: ear reshaping or ear contouring, also known as otoplasty.

What is ear reshaping?

Ear reshaping is a cosmetic surgery that reshapes the ears so that they are more proportional to the remainer of your facial features. Commonly referred to as ear pinning or otoplasty, it can be used to reduce the size of larger ears or to correct the shape of the ears.

Otoplasty is usually performed on children between the ages of 4 and 6, but it can be performed on adults. This involves altering the cartilage of the ear, with stitches holding the cartilage permanently in place.

Other ear contouring procedures are used to reduce ear size (macrotia), correct deformities or injuries, fix misshapen ear cartilage and enhance the overall appearance of the ears.

What does ear reshaping cost?

Ear reshaping is a cosmetic procedure and is not covered by insurance.

Fee quotes are given at the time of consultation and start at $5,775 (depending on what additional procedures may be required). This includes the physician charge, facility fee, anesthesia fee, pre-operative visit, post-operative visits for up to three months, dressings and garments.
