Otoplasty in San Diego

Men, women, and even children need not suffer from the teasing and self-consciousness associated with prominent ears. A procedure known as otoplasty can correct ears that stick out and, if necessary, can reduce the size of large ears. Dr. Mark Mofid makes a small incision behind the ear through which he shapes and bends the cartilage so that the ears sit more closely to the head. Ears that stick out, large ears, lopped or cupped ears, and shell ears may all be corrected with plastic surgery. Incisions can usually be placed behind the ears or in other places where any scars will be inconspicuous. Please visit if you would like meet with Dr. Mark Mofid to discuss how Otoplasty in San Diego can benefit you and have a digital imaging session with his cosmetic coordinator. Patients interested in cosmetic face, body, or breast surgery may also visit his La Jolla office for more information on financing or to learn more about the cost of his procedures.
