Your Los Angeles Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

In Southern California and Los Angeles, the beautiful weather allows for an active and healthy lifestyle. Looking good and feeling good can goes hand in hand. A well proportion body can add to one's self-confidence.

Large and prominent ears are a concern for patients of all ages. For young children, the large and prominent ears can be the source of teasing and ridicule. For adults, the large and prominent ears can cause a decrease in self-confidence, hiding of the ears, and avoidance of different hairstyles..

One surgery that can alleviate these problems is ear surgery, otherwise known as otoplasty. For the most part, ear surgery (otoplasty) is performed on children between the ages of 4 and 14 years of age. Ears are almost fully grown by age 4, and the earlier the surgery, the less teasing and ridicule the child will have to endure. Ear surgery (otoplasty) on adults is also very beneficial. In general, ear surgery can pull and pin the ears back making them stick-out less. The ear surgery can also decrease the overall size of the ears and earlobes.

Ear surgery (otoplasty) is a highly individualized procedure. Choosing to have ear surgery (otoplasty) is a very personal decision. Every patient's ears are unique and different. In addition, every patient's desires and goals are unique and different. By giving his personal attention to every detail, Dr. T. Y. Steven Ip aims to create the best possible ear surgery result for you.
