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

I always disliked how my ears protruded out and gave me the appearance of being tired or sad. Some years ago I met someone that completed the otoplasty absent of sutures and their results were good but not great. After researching I was lucky enough to meet Dr. Joseph and finally decided to get... READ MORE

My ears weren't HUGE, per se, they just stuck out a bit too much in such a way that they exacerbated my narrow face. This was a small first step in a multi-tiered process I'm working on in which the next step is jawline and chin enhancement (partially for shape, largely for symmetry), and it... READ MORE

I have hated my ears for as long as I can remember. I was bullied at school as a kid, I hated any sport or activity that required me to put my hair in a ponytail, and before surgery, I had never worn my hair up in public. As a teenager, I remember even sticking double sided tape behind my ears... READ MORE

I had the stitch method ear correction performed 5 days ago. I was so excited to have it as I've wanted my ears done since a little girl and due to other serious health issues couldn't put myself through another surgery or risk infection with the traditional method. I know it is very early days... READ MORE

So I am scheduled for surgery with Dr. Pousti Wednesday February 12. I am a bit nervous but mostly excited. I met with Dr Pousti about two weeks ago and have nothing but good things to say about him and his staff. He went through the whole procedure with and was there to answer any questions I...

I had a melanoma on my ear that kept growing. My son suggested I see a plastic surgeon because it was big and my ear would have to be taken off. Dr. Oppenheimer removed the cancer and I was able to keep my ear. I am very happy that I went to see him and he was able to remove the cancer within... READ MORE

Hi all, I just had my Otoplasty procedure done on the 18th after wanting to have it done for as long as I can remember. Before the procedure my specific concern was that the bottom third of my ear would stick out once they were pinned back, and I kind of feel like that's exactly what's happened.... READ MORE

I've posted several times over the past year and a half as I've followed my young son's otoplasty and now revision surgery (done the same day as my uni-lateral 5 days ago), and now at last I have my own story to share. I've always had one "bad" ear and one "good" one. The bad one is the same... READ MORE

I've wanted an otoplasty for as long as I can remember. I guess I wanted it so bad that I didn't care that my dr didn't really let me talk during the consultation, and was trying to persuade me out of my original plans that I had gone over in my head for years. He also insisted that I use... READ MORE

Correction of the right ear rim from square to round. Very pleased with the results so far. He is very good specialist in ear area and if you are serious about getting it done only once, I think he is the man for the job. I heard mixed reviews about him but I cannot fault him in the result or... READ MORE

I have had the upper poles of my ears pinned back. I am lucky that I have natural really small ears that have a nice shape only apart from the upper parts which stuck out slightly. Most people didn't really notice it, but they really annoyed me...especially as I had to wear my hair up for my job... READ MORE

I was first impressed with Dr. Eric M. Joseph educational background and his vast experience in the field of plastic surgery. I can’t even tell how happy I am with my decision to have the Otoplasty procedure!!!! My ears have always been an insecurity of mine, and this insecurity often became a... READ MORE

I had otoplasty operation 3 months ago but I'm not happy with the top of my ears, as I fell they are sticking out too much (4 mm on both sides). When I first took the headband off they were perfect for the first week , my surgeon said they will not move as I have permanent internal structures,... READ MORE
