Many children are born with protruding ears, usually caused by genetics. While their ears may work perfectly, it can be difficult to live with the appearance of large or outwardly protruding ears. Kids can be cruel and teasing a child for an odd feature like “Dumbo ears” is common. Children with protruding ears can feel embarrassed or lack confidence in their appearance. Otoplasty, or ear pinning, is a cosmetic ear surgery that can fix protruding ears, which can benefit those born with this condition.

Otoplasty, to alter the appearance of protruding or large ears, can be performed in childhood or adulthood. Some parents choose to alter their children’s ears through ear pinning or otoplasty to spare them ridicule. The surgery can be done at about six years of age or older. Others that grew up with larger ears may choose to have them altered as an adult to improve their appearance. In most cases, this procedure is done on an outpatient basis and can have stunning results when performed by an experienced facial plastic surgeon.

Surgical Alteration for Large or Protruding Ears

Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, is a respected facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon who offers otoplasty for his patients in NYC. Dr. Rosenberg evaluates each case carefully to determine the best surgical option to create the desired results. For some patients, the angle of the ear to the scalp is too open, and pinning the ear back can effectively reduce the protrusion. For others, there may be too much cartilage in the middle ear, or there may not be a fold at the upper edge, causing the ears to look larger. Whatever the case, Dr. Rosenberg can determine the best solution to create the desired effect for the patient, using his expertise in reconstructive and plastic surgery.

If you or your child have protruding or large ears you want surgically altered, contact Dr. Rosenberg at his NYC or Upper East Side office to schedule a consultation. Otoplasty can make a beautiful difference in ear appearance and help improve you or your child’s self-confidence.

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.
