Ear Surgery

Louisville Cosmetic Ear Surgery Specialist – Dr. Lee Corbett

Is Otoplasty (Cosmetic Ear Surgery) for Me?

Otoplasty surgery is typically performed when we are young, usually about the time we start school to avoid teasing. However, there are a lot of patients who reach adulthood with one or both ears protruding. For male patients this often leads to some level of self-consciousness while female patients feel ‘condemned’ to certain hair styles to hide the problem. Correction of protruding ears is possible for adults. In fact, the procedure is rather routine and makes a significant improvement for those who elect to have the surgery.

Goals of Surgery

The goal of the surgery is to bring the ears back into a normal anatomic relationship with your head and to gain symmetry with the other ear.
