Ear Reduction (Otoplasty)/ Ear Lobe Repair

Overview of the Procedure

Otoplasty, or Ear Reduction, is a procedure that alters the appearance, position, and size of the ears.

Reasons for the Procedure

Patients may be dissatisfied with the appearance of their ears – they may consider the ears to be too large or prominent. Additionally, the earlobes may have torn through and need to be corrected.

What to Expect

Ear surgery is performed to correct abnormalities or cosmetic imperfections, or simply pulling the ears closer to the scalp.


We provide a variety of highly individualized cosmetic procedures. Best results are achieved by a thorough consultation with your surgeon. A surgeon from Riverside Oral & Facial Surgery will be able to recommend the best cosmetic surgical approach for your needs.
