Do your ears stick out to a degree that makes you feel awkward and embarrassed? Ear alteration surgery, also called otoplasty, can reposition the ears closer to the head in order to correct the proportions. One available type of otoplasty is called cartilage sparing.

Cartilage sparing is a type of otoplasty technique that requires no incisions, only medical stitches. Using this, plastic surgeons can change the shape of the ear without causing scarring or major bruising or swelling.

You’ll find out more about cartilage sparing otoplasty and your other otoplasty options with a visit to board-certified plastic surgeons Doctors Matthew Romans and Jeremy Silk. They provide expert plastic surgery to patients in the Salinas area. Contact us today to arrange an appointment.
