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

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 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...

After many years of painful memories of being ridiculed of my ears sticking out I decided at the age of 35 to take a very important step in my life and get the otoplasty procedure. My surgery went smoothly and I can now pull my hair back and I feel free like a weight has been removed and I don't... READ MORE

So here goes nothing:) I'm a 13 year old girl from the UK, Scotland. Ever since I was about 7 I started noticing how my ears were different to others, and then constant anxiety started. I wouldn't dare put my hair behind my ears or straight up, ultimately the boring worst hair ever. My ears... READ MORE

So i am getting otoplasty done on the 21st. My doctor only does the procedures on fridays, and removes bandages on the following tuesday(4days after procedure) but since tuesday its Christmas, he is planning on removing them on monday, a day before he usually removes them. This is my main... READ MORE

I hated how my ears would stick out through my hair when it was down and every time I put my hair up I had to have really loose buns/ponytails so that it would cover my ears (though that didn't work too well). My parents thought it was ridiculous that I would even consider otoplasty so of course... READ MORE

It looks smaller than my right ear. On top of that my right ear looks like it has... READ MORE

At 37 years old, all I can say is, "Better late than never" but I also know just how difficult it was to try and find the best plastic surgeon. My journey took time, hopefully you can read my recommendation and save yourself any additional and unnecessary agony. I'm also very cautious about any... READ MORE
