At Moradi MD in San Diego, CA, board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi performs ear surgery to improve symmetry. Ear surgery, also referred to as an otoplasty, reconstructs deformities in the ear cartilage, typically caused by birthing defects, injuries, or other hereditary causes, often found in infants or young children.

"I don’t usually write reviews but I feel the need to share how great my experience was at Moradi today. I went in for a consultation for under eye filler and laser hair removal. From the start Becca was so sweet and friendly. She recommended I wait to do the filler since my face is still a little swollen from some previous cheekbone filler. She answered all of my questions about the laser hair removal process and I never felt pressured to make a decision. Be made sure I was comfortable during the procedure and let me take a small break when I needed to. Overall, it was a great experience and I look forward to going back for my next appointments."- K.H. / Yelp / Mar 03, 2021
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.
