Ear Surgery

As a Craniofacial surgeon and Adult and Pediatric Specialist, Dr. Costa has years of experience in ear reshaping, non-surgical ear molding, and ear reconstruction.

Patients come to Dr. Costa seeking help for congenital deformities such as microtia, reconstruction after trauma and cancer, as well as protruding ears, misshapen ears, ear lobe repair, and ear reduction.

Procedures Include

Ear Lobe Repair
Patients may seek repair for a gauged, stretched, or torn earlobe. This repair is done in the office under local anesthesia. The goal is to restore the normal appearance of the earlobe. The opening in the lobe along with any stretched-out tissue is removed and the ear lobe is reconstructed.

Otoplasty (Ear Reshaping) can improve the shape, size, position or proportion of the ear. Differences in the ear structure that are either present at birth or becomes apparent with development can be corrected with otoplasty. Misshapen ears caused by injury can also be treated with otoplasty.

Auricular Remnants (Ear Tags)
Pretragal remnants, or chondrocutaneous remnants, are excess skin and/or cartilage that appear typically in front of the ear or on the cheek. Sometimes referred to as ear tags, or branchial cleft remnants, or an accessory tragus, these remnants are present at birth. They will not go away on their own. Once removed, auricular remnants do not come back.
