Earlobe and Prominent Ear Correction New Jersey

Ear Surgery - Berlet Plastic SurgeryEar surgery is typically performed to set prominent ears back closer to the head, or to reduce the size of large ears. Cosmetic surgery may be helpful for “lop ear,” “cupped ear” and “shell ear,” large or stretched earlobes, and lobes with large creases and wrinkles. Our New Jersey plastic surgeons are also able to construct new ears for patients who are missing them due to injury or other causes.

This cosmetic surgery can be performed on children as young as four years of age when the ears are fully grown, in order to minimize teasing in school.

The procedure lasts from two to three hours and may be performed in a hospital, office-based facility or an outpatient surgery center under general or local anesthesia.
