Misshapen ears are common, due to both congenital deformities and trauma. Many children are born with outer ears that have odd contours or seem unbalanced in shape. Injuries from accidents or other types of trauma can alter the shape of an ear. If you or your child have misshapen ears, ear plastic surgery can be an option to create the appearance you desire.

The outer ear is made mostly of cartilage, a pliable tissue that can be easily damaged. In newborns, ear cartilage can be misshapen from the moment they are born. The cartilage is still maturing and can be impacted by pressure in the womb or during delivery. Children and adults can experience injuries that tear, damage or alter the ear shape. Misshapen ears can be embarrassing, especially for children who may be teased by bullies. Ear shaping surgery can balance the shape of the ear to create an aesthetically-pleasing appearance.

Reshaping Ear Cartilage

Ears are complex in design, making them one of the more difficult features to alter through cosmetic surgery. Dr. Rosenberg’s expertise and experience as a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon are put to good use when performing intricate ear reshaping surgeries. Each patient and case are unique, requiring Dr. Rosenberg’s skill as a plastic surgeon and his artistic talents to alter the shape of the cartilage to match the opposite ear. In some cases, cartilage grafting is necessary to replace damaged or missing ear tissue to create a newly shaped ear.

Children and teens are the most common patients for ear reshaping, helping them overcome ear deformities, However, adults can also benefit from improvements to their ear shape. If you have a child that was born with misshapen ears or you want to alter your ear shape, contact Dr. Rosenberg at his offices in NYC or Upper East Side to schedule a consultation.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
