Reshape Your Ears, Restore Your Confidence
Dr. Cabin uses various state-of-the-art techniques and a custom-tailored approach to resize, reshape, and enhance the look of your ears.
What Is Otoplasty?
Your ears are very important to the overall balance and harmony of your face. Damage caused to the cosmetic appearance of your ears—whether from developmental disorders, birth defects, or trauma—can cause stress, discomfort, and a lack of self-confidence.
Otoplasty, or ear surgery, refers to any cosmetic surgery that repositions, reshapes, or just overall improves the appearance of your ears. If you’re unhappy with the shape, size, or position of your ears, Dr. Cabin can help.
How It Works
If you’re considering cosmetic ear surgery, it’s important to understand how the procedure works and what it involves. Dr. Cabin prioritizes safety, trust, and satisfaction, which is why he and his team take meticulous care of you before, during, and after your procedure.
Here’s what you can expect from your ear surgery:
Fully Customized Treatment Plan
Following a thorough consultation, Dr. Cabin will tailor a treatment plan to meet your unique needs and aesthetic goals.
Expert Surgical Care
During the surgery, he’ll make precise incisions behind your ears to minimize scarring before reshaping the cartilage and tissue of your ears so you get the symmetry and proportions you want.
Recovery will typically span several days. You’ll need to wear bandages to protect the surgical area and promote healing, and you should expect some mild discomfort and swelling—but nothing that you can’t manage with medication.
Most importantly, Dr. Cabin and our expert team will provide you with personalized, easy-to-follow instructions and any necessary medications to ease your discomfort and speed up your recovery.
Is Otoplasty Right for You?
The goal of otoplasty is to make your ears appear more shapely, natural, and well-proportioned to the rest of your face.
You may be an ideal candidate for ear surgery if you want to:
Reduce the Size of Your Ears
Dr. Cabin can reposition or reduce the size of your prominent ears, bringing your ears closer to your head and restoring natural symmetry and balance to your face.
Restore Balance to Your Face
If you’re seeking to reshape your ears so that they’re in better proportion with your overall face, Dr. Cabin can help. Our expert facial plastic surgeon will recreate the natural folds of your ears and refine their overall contours to get you the symmetry you desire.
Like many cosmetic procedures, one of the key benefits of otoplasty is that it can improve your self-esteem. Many patients who have undergone this procedure report feeling more comfortable and confident in social situations—both in their personal and professional lives—especially if they were previously self-conscious about the size or shape of their ears.

As you keep healing, you'll notice the amazing, natural-looking results of your otoplasty. Your ears will look more balanced with your unique look.
