The ears are often overlooked, but they play a significant role in your overall appearance. Several issues can lead to self-consciousness about the appearance of the ears, and the delicate tissues of the earlobes make them prone to injury or damage. An experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Christian Paquet can help patients achieve the appearance that they want through surgeries that require little to no downtime and often offer permanent results.
Prominent ears can be a distraction from a patient’s natural beauty. In addition, birth defects or injuries may result in disfigurement of the ears. For these reasons, plastic surgeons like Dr. Paquet offer otoplasty, commonly referred to as ear surgery or ear pinning surgery. This procedure can be chosen to adjust the angle or size of the ears or correct deformities. Otoplasty can also be performed on children as young as five if parents choose.LEARN MORE
Whether due to the natural aging process, injury, or stretching earlobe piercings to wear “gauges,” the earlobes can easily become damaged, torn, or elongated. A plastic surgeon like Dr. Paquet can help restore a natural and beautiful shape through earlobe repair. This procedure can be performed under local anesthesia and typically requires no downtime, allowing patients to immediately return to their routines while enjoying a restored earlobe. If you choose, it is also possible to re-pierce the repaired earlobe after healing is complete.LEARN MORE
