What Can an Otoplasty Do For Me?

If you are unhappy with the appearance of your ears and are looking for a way to achieve symmetry or a reduction in size, an Otoplasty procedure may be for you. This procedure can also repair injuries such as a torn or elongated earlobes. 

Unlike many other cosmetic surgeries, an Otoplasty can be performed as early as 5 or 6 years old. This is because the ear is quick to mature and does so at that early age. If protruding ears are a concern for a young child, correcting the issue at a young age can sometimes spare them years of teasing and bullying. Of course, a personal consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Raval is the best way to find out if an otoplasty is right for you or your child.


Plastic surgery requires many years of medical training and experience. But it is also an art. Here at Raval Facial Aesthetics, Dr. Jeffrey Raval’s fundamental philosophy is “less is more.” In other words, finesse matters – especially when the surgery will permanently alter your facial appearance.

The best surgeon for you has undeniable medical credentials and proven experience. That gives you confidence in their skill. But your surgeon cannot do their best work unless you are open and honest about your concerns and desired results. Do you feel comfortable talking with them about these very personal details? The truth is, you want more than a doctor, you want a partner in refreshing your appearance.


Looking at before and after photos is an essential part of deciding whether or not to have any procedure. But it’s not the only deciding factor. Learn as much as you can about each surgical option. What does it entail? How long will it take? How much downtime is involved? What else is there to know about recovery? What does it cost?

The answers to all these questions point you in the right direction. And they help you develop realistic expectations. The ultimate Q&A opportunity is a personal consultation with Dr. Raval, so we encourage you to schedule a session.
