There are many reasons to consider plastic surgery: personal, medical, or cosmetic reasons. Protruding ears are one cause for people to seek corrective surgery. Whereas protruding ears do not negatively affect a person’s hearing, they may cause embarrassment or even psychological distress. Protruding ears affect an estimated 5 percent of the American population and can occur for several reasons, including underdevelopment or overdevelopment of cartilage or injury. If such a deformity does not self-correct, otoplasty may be suggested. We are proud to offer customized otoplasty in Honolulu.
What is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty is a method of plastic surgery designed to treat several ear issues in adults and children. Issues include protruding ears, constructed ears, enlarged ear lobes, or underdevelopment and overdevelopment of ears. Full recovery may take weeks to months, but generally, patients can resume most of their everyday activities in just days, if not sooner. If you are seeking the best care and attention for your ear issues, otoplasty with our skilled surgeon is a top choice!
Who Can Get Otoplasty?
Otoplasty can be performed on children, teens, and adults. The surgery can be performed at almost any age once the ears have reached full size, which is usually around age five to six.

What Happens During a Consultation?
Before your consultation for otoplasty in Honolulu, it’s a good idea to ask yourself important questions and record the necessary information. Our team will inquire about your current or past medical treatments, drug allergies, surgeries, and medical conditions. Bring a list of all current medications, both prescription and over-the-counter supplements and vitamins.
Our doctor can explain to you all of the options, treatments, and likely outcomes of the surgery. The otoplasty procedure and recovery process will be discussed along with potential complications. This will also be a good time to ask any remaining questions you may have.
