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.

Swift Recovery

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.
