Ear Surgery/Otoplasty

Ears that project significantly can offset overall facial harmony and may result in a source of embarrassment or hinder self-confidence in adults and children. Surgical revision of the ear, also known as Otoplasty, improves the angle and appearance of protruding ears.

Dr. Burke uses up-to-date techniques that hide the incisions behind or inside the ear to create a natural, balanced appearance.


Usually an outpatient procedure, otoplasty is most commonly performed under either general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation.

Meet Dr. Renee Burke

Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Burke creates exceptional results by combining the skill of an accomplished plastic surgeon with empathy and compassion.


Recovery depends on the extent of your ear surgery and any accompanying procedures. You may engage in light activity the day after your surgery; a return to more normal activity may take 1-2 weeks. Your appearance will gradually refine over the following 4-6 weeks. Results from otoplasty are long lasting.
