The procedure could not have gone any better. I had local anesthetic and it was fine. I was always at ease. Recovery has been fine, thus far. I was in pain a few hours after the procedure, but nothing unbearable and nothing that the pain killers couldn't control. I had a good nights rest the... READ MORE

I had the best experience with otoplasty surgery. This was far better than the first time I had my ears done. I was awake during the procedure so the recovery time was quick. Dr. Sheila Nazarian sculpted my ears beautifully. She placed permanent sutras to give my ear definition and to hold them... READ MORE

My ears have stuck out my entire life. I was teased mercilessly in school, and finally as an adult I was encouraged by friends to do something about my biggest insecurity that was a better solution than constantly brushing my hair over them. I was so scared to have my survery (I'm a total wuss... READ MORE

I was born with ears that didn't only stick out, but with also a left ear that was much smaller than my right and was shaped like a bat's ear, a bit folded. I was teased about it growing up, and as I got older, the more self-conscious I was about it. Until recently 3 years ago I found out about... READ MORE

I am 16 years old now and I had an otoplasty done 6 MONTHS ago and they are still red and dry. I Have been putting lotion, vitamin E, Petroleum Jelly, anything you could think of, on them. I don't know what can heal them anymore, so I am obviously a little upset with the whole thing. What should... READ MORE

My life as a real life Dumbo has ended! After many years thinking about having an otoplasty I finally decided and went for it. I recently moved to Timisoara (I used to live in Italy) and after a short research online I found out about Dr. Tiberiu Bratu and his "Brol Medical Center". Dr. Bratu is... READ MORE

I always suffered with large ears that stuck out and as a result suffered all the negative things that come with it growing up. I let it eat away at me and bother me a lot more than what it should have, once I heard about this procedure I made it my priority to save up and get it done. Dr kang... READ MORE

The first time I had my ears done I was pleasantly surprised at how clean the Bangkok hospital was and the Dr was lovely. The procedure was fine. The only problem was my ears still protruded a lot after the bandages came off and it was so disappointing. The Dr said I could come back after... READ MORE

My original otoplasty was done in May, and the results were terrible. I suffered from intense bleeding from both ears, which needed to be cauterized twice. Afterwards, the ears were extremely lopsided. One ear was folded all the way back, and telephoned horribly. The other almost did not change... READ MORE

I had been considering otoplasty for quite some time to correct my overly large "dumbo" ears, and after doing a ridiculous amount of research, decided to take the plunge. During my search for potential surgeons, all reviews and indications kept leading me back to Dr.Rahban, so I decided to book... READ MORE

I had a revision in 2012 from my original surgery in 2002. I'm wondering what the community thinks about if I should go back for another revision? I feel like the right one is plastered to my head and slightly misshapen, and the left still has quite a curvature to it. Im not sure if I'm... READ MORE

Hello my friends , im contacting you for your review. I've done otoplasty surgery last week with request to reduce my ear size (ear lobe or pinning) but now im little bit scared about one week post op results. Doctor said its normal that ears look that big and scary after surgery , and said that... READ MORE

I am so happy I had ear pinback surgery. I had been contemplating it for years as my ears stuck out and it was something I was insecure about. The surgery went even better than expected. Wonderful recovery (I was back at work 2 days later) and essentially no pain. I forgot I even got the surgery... READ MORE

Ive been thinking about getting my ears pinned back for 30 years and more ,as they stick out a lot, every now and again id look into it and get prices but always chicken out at the last minute. Then I discovered The Aurora clinic and Doctor Adrian Richards on You Tube. I did plenty of research... READ MORE

I had otoplasty done by Dr. Keith Jeffords back in 2011. After meeting with several plastic surgeons, I decided to go with him because he made me feel like he was very experienced with otoplasty and knew exactly what he was doing. It turned out to be the worst decision I've ever made. All I was... READ MORE

I am on a facial transformation journey- Otoplasty, Buccal fat removal, neck lipo, chin augmentation, and rhinoplasty. I finished the first 3 (easier ones) yesterday in a 2-hour procedure. I have attached before and after (1 day post op pictures). I panicked as I saw myself in the mirror, esp... READ MORE

I had the stitch method done in 2007 and initially did improve the appearance of my protruding ears. But during surgery my right ear swelled up and so it was harder for the doctor it see or make sure the ears where symmetrical. I am know 7 years post operation. I can say it is better than...

Had the new procedure earfold where they insert a tiny peice of metal covered in gold into the ear cartridge to change the shape of the ear by folding it back nearer the head, had it done one week ago already my ears look fantastic,small and close to my head still have the tiny stitches but...

From start to finish this has been a great experience. Dr. Allison and his staff were wonderful. I would do it again in a second. Never been so happy! I feel like a new person. Wish I had done it sooner. Hospital staff talked very highly of Dr. Allison and were very attentive. The whole surgery... READ MORE

I have been ridiculed about my ears sticking out since middle school and finally decided to get them pinned when I was on break from an out-of-state college. I assumed the excessive price to be a signal of his skill level. After the operation, Dr. Yenikomshian had me in a turban-like dressing... READ MORE
