Seattle Ear Pinning

Being born with ears that stick out or are abnormally large can be extremely difficult for children on into adolescence and even adulthood. Cosmetic ear surgery, or otoplasty, is a procedure to set the ears back closer to the sides of the head. The cartilage may also be re-shaped or some bits of it removed, as needed to create a more symmetrical and harmonious appearance. Cosmetic ear surgery can also be used to correct torn ear lobes and other imperfections in the structure of the ear.

Children as young as age 5 may be eligible for cosmetic ear surgery and Dr. Chung has experience in working with both children and adults in this area. If you are concerned for your child or are frustrated with living with it yourself and are ready to discuss your options with Dr. Chung, we invite you to contact us to schedule your one-on-one consultation today.
