I'm wanting to get an otoplasty done in Vancouver, BC. Can someone recommend a skilled surgeon for this procedure? (Photos)

How would you fix the tip on my right ear?
Thank you for your photos. Otoplasty is a procedure that aims to create the fold in the external ear (called the antihelix) and pull the ears closer to the side of the head. Through a combination of strategic suture placement and cartilage excision the ears are "pinned back" creating a sleeker frontal view. The small area of your right ear with which you are unhappy would require an incision on the rim or the ear (the helix) to repair. This would definitely result in a scar but it may very well be favorable if you are truly bothered by it. You would need to have a good examination by your Plastic Surgeon and discuss surgical plans, risks and benefits and decide on a path that is right for you. Best wishes.
