Otoplasty – Ear Surgery

Los Angeles & Pasadena, California

What Otoplasty Corrects

Otoplasty reshapes the ears to produce a more natural and complementary look. This can include both minor and more pronounced issues with size, volume, and positioning. Dr. O’Toole commonly recommends otoplasty for overly-large ears or ears that protrude unattractively from the head, but may also suggest it for more subtle structural abnormalities that are detracting from your overall appearance.

This procedure can address both congenital and surgical asymmetries and is one of the only facial plastic surgery procedures that may be suitable for children – particularly those subject to emotional abuses from peers due to unusually shaped or sized ears. The best way to learn if otoplasty is right for you or your child’s needs is by discussing your concerns with our experienced Pasadena cosmetic surgeon.

“Dr. O’Toole and his staff are amazingly warm and comforting. I felt comfortable asking as many questions as I wanted and left feeling completely confident in my plastic surgery treatment. Dr. O’Toole was my breast implant surgeon and after 20 years, I wouldn’t go to anyone else for future body beautification needs. In fact, I love his work so much, that I have referred my mom and she has happily booked her appointment already. He is truly the best plastic surgeon! Love you all!”
