Are you unhappy with the look of your ears? Whether you have been dissatisfied with their appearance since you were a child or have sustained an injury, Dr. David Passaretti can help. Dr. Passaretti offers ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, to correct several types of aesthetic imperfections. Otoplasty can reshape or realign ears that are too large or protrude too far from the head. It can also correct deformities in the ears' cartilage or skin due to lacerations or other trauma. To learn more about ear surgery, contact our Darien, CT, office today and schedule an appointment.

Are You a Candidate?

There are several types of cosmetic imperfections that lead patients to consider otoplasty. This is one type of plastic surgery, like rhinoplasty, that is sometimes performed on children as well as adults. Candidates are generally concerned with one of several factors:

  • Overly large ears
  • Misshapen ears
  • Cauliflower ear (when cartilage in the ear breaks down after trauma)
  • Sagging or large earlobes
  • A deformed ear missing some components, such as shell ear
  • Excessively protruding ears

Like any other facial feature, our ears add distinct character to our appearance. During your initial consultation with Dr. Passaretti, you will discuss your unique concerns and treatment goals. By understanding what type of look you are trying to achieve, Dr. Passaretti can individualize your surgical plan for the best otoplasty Connecticut can offer.

Otoplasty Techniques

Before your surgery is performed, Dr. Passaretti will apply a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort. He will create incisions either behind your ears or discreetly hidden within their natural contours.

About Dr. Passaretti

Dr. David Passaretti is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Fairfield County, Connecticut. He fell in love with the field of plastic surgery and enjoys providing personalized treatment to his patients who come to him looking for answers to their low confidence. With extensive education and experience, Dr. Passaretti is rewarded when his patients leave feeling good about their appearance and their self-esteem.

Minimizing Protrusion

To correct protruding, Dr. Passaretti will reshape your cartilage through incisions made behind your ears. He may use stitches to hold your ears closer to your head. In many cases, bringing your ears closer toward your head can effectively make them look smaller and less noticeable.

Reshaping the Ears

If your ears are disproportionately large in comparison to the rest of your head and features, Dr. Passaretti may recommend reshaping them. During the procedure, he can remove cartilage and trim excess skin around your ears. Removing excess skin is commonly recommended for patients with earlobes that have become stretched over time. Once these revisions are complete, Dr. Passaretti will carefully close the incisions.
