This young gentleman was born with lop ears, which had a wide angle in relation to his skull. An otoplasty procedure was performed using the Mustarde technique (suturing technique to reshape the deformed cartilage and as such decrease the angle from his skull). The only scar from this procedure is hidden in the crease between his ear and skull, thus making it nicely camouflaged and indiscernible.

This young lady was born with lop ears which were asymmetric, being more prominent on the left side. An otoplasty procedure using a combination of Furnas (pulling the prominent bowl in) and Mustarde (suturing techniques to reshape the deformed cartilage) was performed to differentially decrease the angle of her ears from the skull, resulting in natural and highly symmetrical postoperative appearance for both ears.

Patient Reviews

“It was excellent. He is a doctor who actually listens to your concerns and responds to them. He is extremely professional and is very caring about his patient’s care. When he performs surgery it is literally seamless. It is difficult to tell that what was done because he minimizes scarring.”
