I am a 30+ year old woman who has been self conscious of my prominent ears all my life. My older brother used to call me Dumbo and I spent most of my life hating my ears. I had begged my parents to have it done, but they were both either too cruel/practical to allow me to have it done as a... READ MORE

On May 5, 2014, I had an otoplasty performed on both of my ears. The procedure was easy to sit through and was finished in a timely manner (less than 2 hours). The surgery itself was painless (aside from the minor pain with the numbing) and the recovery was relatively easy! I preferred to use a... READ MORE

My ears have always been fairly prominent (3 cm. overhang or so) and I wanted them set back a bit to look a bit more natural and not so protruding. After otoplasty with Dr. Chaboki I'm absolutely thrilled to say my ears are closer or maybe even under a 1 cm overhang and look much more in line... READ MORE

I have always felt insecure about the way my ears stuck out. I would never wear my hair up and always hide them beneath my hair. I am so glad I chose Dr. S to do this procedure with! My experience has been incredible! I am beyond happy with the way my ears have come out. They are symmetrical and... READ MORE

This was a totally visible injury to my ear, and it was also a danger for more damage because of the large hole in the upper portion of my ear. I can't believe how great it now looks and feels!! It's been nearly 4 years since Dr. Chaboki repaired the horrific damage to my left ear. No one... READ MORE

The issues I addressed were ignored during surgery and afterwards the results were unsatisfactory. He talked to the nurse right in front of me about how some patients are just never satisfied no matter what, excusing himself from a job done inadequately. There was supposed to be a revision but...

I am a return client of Dr. Hilinski because he does the best work, has very accomodating prices, and most importantly he genuinely cares about his patients. I did my first operation(earlobe reduction) with him a few years ago and I was very nervous since the margin of error was very small and... READ MORE

Ever since I was a little girl I was bullied for being 'ugly'. Born with a birth mark on my ear, it stuck out quite a bit and was much larger than my other ear. I always wanted it changed but never had the guts to go for it... As I got older I knew it was now or never. I decided to have... READ MORE

My left ear stuck out about 2cm more than my right ear, on top of that, it also have a very different shape. It just bothers me so much that I decided to do Otoplasty. During my first consultation, I was very impressed with the attitude of the staffs as well as how professional Dr. Joseph is.... READ MORE

First of All I would just to start off by saying THANKYOU, Thank you for making me a happier more confident person. Before surgery I hadn’t worn my hair up since I was in year 6. I had been called names throughout school and just decided going into high school would be easier to hide my ears.... READ MORE

Since birth my right ear was missing a fold in the cartilage which caused it to protrude. For years this caused me to be very insecure and I would never where my hair back or up. If I went swimming I would quickly put my wet hair over my ear. For the most part I just dealt with my insecurity... READ MORE

Every since I was in elementary school, I've hated my ears. I love having my hair up, but because I was self conscious about my ears, I had to always pull strands of my hair down in front of my ears in order to cover them. The older I got, the more my ears bothered me. The day I turned 18, I... READ MORE

I waited until I was 48 to have the procedure. I wish I would have done it sooner. I have always been self-conscious because of my ears and am so happy now to be able to wear hair styles I have never been able to wear. The procedure went pretty well. I had just local anesthesia. The only... READ MORE

This was my first surgery, though it was "minor" (ear tuck) it was very major to me and Dr. Rocheford was awesome! It wasn't painful and was done in less than 2 hours. Healing was fine but ears do look swollen for at least a week and no swimming or high-intensity exercise for a few weeks.... READ MORE

I have had a huge amount of swelling and bruising and although I finally feel like I'm healing I'm still sore nearly 5 week's later.. My surgeon said I am a really slow healer. I also had to take four weeks off work which I didnt take into account I might of needed more than a week!! The photo... READ MORE

>> Five stars are not enough, if I could give a million, I would. I currently reside in Las Vegas, Nevada. You would think it is easy to find a reputable board certified plastic surgeon to give you exactly what you want, think again. I had macroctia (large ears) and I was so embarrassed of them...

Dr Barnavon fixed my ears that had previously been done when I was younger but weren't done right. He is a meticulous surgeon who takes the time to discuss and explain everything before its done. I'm scheduling my breast surgery and eye lid procedure for October. I'm having my existing implants... READ MORE

In an incisionless otoplasty the ear is reshaped by placing permanent stitches (the same kind that are used in the traditional open technique) through the skin and burying them underneath without the need for any cuts. The reshaped cartilage of the ear is scored with a needle in order to... READ MORE

I originally had this procedure in 1998 (bilateral otoplasty & Center for Plastic Sugery). I knew right away that my ears were not symmetric. I am going to have a revision because my left ear sticks out. It's way better than b4, but after already having a breast augmentation w/John Iacobucci, MD... READ MORE

I have always been embarrased because of my large ears. They really stuck out and although I loved to wear my hair up I was self-conscious of my ears so I felt limited with hairstyles. My surgical outcome not only met my pre-operative expectations but exceeded in making me feel more confident... READ MORE
