Otoplasty (Ear Surgery) Los Angeles
While the ears aren’t technically part of the facial structure, they still contribute to how the face is framed. If the ears are too large, protruding or otherwise misshapen, they can detract significantly from one’s appearance. Our Los Angeles Otoplasty, otherwise known as ear surgery, is a procedure to improve the shape, position or proportion of the ears.
With a double board certification in head and face surgical specialties, Dr. Torkian is the perfect candidate to help patients find relief from misshapen or overlarge ears. With innumerable successful otoplasty procedures under his belt, his patients report the best otoplasty Beverly Hills has available.

Benefits of otoplasty
While otoplasty can correct a number of issues in the ears, the most common otoplasty procedure is known as ear pinning. This procedure is done to bring the ears closer to the head when they stick out too far. With an incision hidden in back of the ear, ear pinning is a rapid, comfortable way of enhancing one’s appearance and increasing one’s confidence.
Beyond ear pinning, otoplasty can correct any number of cosmetic conditions related to the ears, including ear reshaping.
- The benefits of otoplasty include:
- Correction of overly large ears
- Correction of ears that protrude too far from the head, on one or both sides
- Revision of a previously done otoplasty that did not produce the desired results
- Correction of any other cosmetic defect in the ears, such as cauliflower ears
- Ear lobe repair from ear piercing or so-called gauges
Otoplasty is usually done under local anesthetic, leading to rapid recovery and minimal downtime. The procedure takes anywhere from 1 to 2 hours.
Otoplasty for children
Otoplasty is one of the rare cosmetic procedures that is regularly performed on children. This is because overly large or protruding ears can be seen at a very early age, and tend to be a source of embarrassment or introversion. For children, Dr. Torkian performs gentle, comfortable otoplasty to make sure his child patients are completely at ease before, during and after the procedure. If you have further questions about otoplasty for your child, please call our office and we will answer any questions you may have.
