"Dr. Moradi and staff are absolutely AMAZING! I am a NICU/ Labor and Delivery nurse. I was also married to an OBGYN for 18 years. We owned our own practice and I managed our practice for several years. We always believed that the reason we thrived was because patients did us the favor of choosing us to care for them! There are so many doctors to chose from especially here in California. For myself and my four children I've always believed that no matter what it takes it is important to find the BEST! Dr. Moradi is better than the best! He is highly educated, skilled, and compassionate. Dr. Moradi has done procedures on me that make me look 15 years younger. I'm a less is best kind of person who is confident and secure in all aspects of my life. I just want to continue to look and feel on the outside as youthful as I do on the inside! Dr. Moradi has told me I didn't need things done that I thought I might need. He is so honest, and caring and understanding! I've worked around many doctors and never have found one as wonderful as Dr. Moradi! Thank you Dr. Moradi and Staff!"- R.S. / Yelp / Jun 13, 2019

"I had such a wonderful experience at Dr. Moradi's office! I recieved treatment from Josalynn. She is absolutely wonderful. I went in for an eyebrow wax (turned out amazing), hydro-jelly facial, and micro-derm. It was my first experience with a facial and micro-derm. Josalynn explained everything to me and continously asked if I was okay. It made the experience that much better. The entire process felt like a mini vacation and my skin felt absolutely amazing afterwards! I can't thank her enough for her professionalism and providing me with such a wonderful experience!"- T.S. / Yelp / Jun 07, 2019

I've had other treatments by staff in his office and they have all been the best in every way. I highly recommend Dr. Moradi and his team."- P.P. / Yelp / May 17, 2019
When To Have Otoplasty?
On average, 5-6 year olds are ideal candidates for otoplasty as the ear will be already developed and the cartilage and tissues will still be soft, making it easy to reshape. However, this procedure can also be performed in adults.
Dr. Moradi is not just a medical expert, he’s an aesthetic professional. He can help you discover your ideal ear proportions and sculpt your ears for a more pleasing appearance. Your ears can be repositioned if they are too high, too low, too far forward, or too far backward for a more harmonious appearance.
Incisions are placed inconspicuously behind the ears or in creases. Following a brief healing period after surgery, we will remove the sutures and you can return to your normal activities with beautiful ears perfectly balanced to your face!
Otoplasties are performed with general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility. It takes 1 to 2 hours to complete, and the patient will be sent home for recovery. The ear will be bandaged to keep the new position and shape in place. This also helps so that children cannot touch or play with their ears, which may complicate healing. Activities must be limited, especially within the first week. Scars will remain hidden behind the ears or within the natural folds if the incisions are made in front of the ear.
