My Ears Stick Out Too Much

By Dr. Sutton Graham on September 09, 2020

This young lady consulted with us about a procedure to correct her overly prominent ears.  Her ear anatomy was generally normal except that the cartilage contours didn't bring the upper rim of the ear closer to her head.  This does not effect one's hearing.  Many people with ears like this, or more protruding, seek cosmetic surgery to correct them.  Surgery may be done under general or local anesthesia, in our in-house surgical facility.  Recovery consists of wearing an elastic headband for one week day-and-night, and another two weeks for 12 hours each day.  Most people can return to work in a few days. 

These pairs of before and after photos show her results from the front, side and back.

There are more photos in the photo gallery on our website.
