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... READ MORE

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

I was super concerned before having otoplasty. I read a lot of reviews, here and on other websites and way too many people were displeased with their results, whether they had issues from the beginning or their results didn't last. My ears were protruding way too much and even though I was... READ MORE

I've wanted to get my ears pinned back for several years and after researching three different surgeons, I picked Dr. Timothy Mountcastle. The procedure took place under local anesthesia and lasted about one and a half hours. It was the best decision I could have made! It was more than worth it.... READ MORE

I had bucket ears, and it really bothered me , i felt i looked goofy with them, they were like dopey's ears. the surgery was in poland and cost a bargain price, after the surgery i did struggle a bit with ear infections for a year, being more likley but this was probly because the inner ear... READ MORE

The Experience was good and the surgery was a success. I was asleep during the operation so i didn't know the exact time it went on for. The only part i didn't have fun with was the bandages wrapped around my head, it got irritating at times, but overal i was really impressed with the results... READ MORE

I underwent unilateral otoplasty on my right ear and i want to know if this is alrady the permanent result after some swelling had fade. I still feel numb on the upper part of my ear and i can see that the upper part seem to stick out i don't know if this is because of swelling or do i have... READ MORE


I've always had ears that stuck out like an elephant and really wanted them pulled back and I couldn't have asked for better results. My ears are now pulled back the perfect amount and are perfectly symmetrical. SO happy!   READ MORE

Waste of money. My one ear is tight and looks good fhe other is lower and out. I wanted to improve my appearance and my ears have always bothered me even after the surgery the scars of teasing are still there. There is no surgery that will fix whatever your searching for hell look at joan rivers... READ MORE

Severe ear deformity after heamatoma of ears causing cartilage overlap and buckling up off ear and fibro cartilage formation causing very thick ears. 2 further ops to give slight improvement. wish i read this beforehand .i never realised the risks involved as i though it was a sraightforward...
