Constantly trying new ways to keep your ears from sticking out, like growing your hair or tucking them under a hat? Is your child self conscious or possibly getting teased because of prominent ears? Otoplasty is a great option for correcting protruding, prominent, or disproportional ear shape. Often referred to as ear pinning or cosmetic ear surgery, Houston-based Otoplasty Specialist Dr. Scott Reis performs this procedure with careful expertise, offering minimal downtime and no noticeable scarring.

Is Otoplasty Right For Me?
