Both adults and children can benefit from surgical procedures for protruding ears, which are corrected by “pinning back” the ears and giving them a less prominent look. Otoplasty, or ear surgery, can be an effective surgical procedure to improve a variety of issues, including large or misshapen ears and ears that stick out a bit too far from the head.

Ear surgery can help with lifelong issues of self-consciousness, and give the entire facial appearance an improved overall balance.

One of our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. David Buchanan or Dr. Wesley Schooler, will discuss all aspects of ear surgery with you at your initial consultation. They will address all of your concerns and tell you what you can expect throughout the entire process. Our doctors pride themselves on working closely with patients to determine which procedure will best fit their own unique needs. We look forward to answering your questions.

Please contact the Santa Barbara Plastic Surgery Center for more information, or to schedule a complimentary consultation.
