Overview of Non-Surgical Otoplasty
No Cutting Or Skin Sutures
The size and shape of our ears can have a profound effect on our appearance. Abnormally large or protruding ears may look aesthetically unpleasing and can impact our confidence and self-esteem.
Non-surgical otoplasty can be an alternative to conventional surgical otoplasty in carefully selected patients. This method restores facial symmetry by correcting the prominently protruding ears to position them closer to the head. Overall, the result is a more aesthetically pleasing look that our patients are satisfied with.

Absolutely! We routinely see patients who only have one ear that protrudes more than the other. We can treat just the problematic ear.
