Beverly Hills Otoplasty
Dr. Ben Talei, leading dual board certified facial plastic surgeon at the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery, offers the most cutting-edge procedures in otoplasty and other ear surgery procedures. Otoplasty, also referred to ear reduction surgery, is a surgical procedure that works to correct ear deformities, protruding or oversized ears.
Protruding and deformed ears can create a feeling of self-consciousness and embarrassment in patients of any age. Ears typically reach their full growth size between the ages of 5 or 6 years old, making anyone a candidate beyond these early years. It’s widely believed that otoplasty should be performed sooner rather than later in life. This is in order to reduce the amount of teasing a child might receive.
Dr. Talei uses physical examination as well as digital photography to find the cause of protrusion. There is no cookie-cutter approach when it comes to otoplasty surgery. That’s why the consultation is vitally important. From there, Dr. Talei will take the time to tailor your procedure to suit your needs, giving you the most natural, longest lasting results.
Otoplasty is typically a minimally invasive procedure where incisions are made behind the ear. Dr. Talei can dramatically improve the shape, size and positioning of the ears during this procedure. While otoplasty surgery can produce dramatic cosmetic results, it will not alter the hearing of a patient in any way.
Candidates for otoplasty surgery include those with marcotia, a rare condition causing excessively large ears, prominent ear deformity, lop ear deformity and those with protruding or misshaped ears.
Dr. Talei is an industry leading physician with dual fellowship training in facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery and vascular birthmarks and congenital anomalies with laser surgery. His experience, coupled with his artistic eye and delicate hand in surgery, make him one of the finest surgeons in otoplasty surgery.
