Dr. Kim appreciates the role of ear size and shape in facial aesthetics. During your consultation, he analyzes the many features of your ears that contribute to the shape. Some patients have very large conchal bowls (near the ear canal), flattened and irregular folds or large lobules. Dr. Kim precisely shapes the skin and cartilage of the ear to tuck the ears back and reduce the prominence of the ears. The entire procedure can be done with discreet incisions behind the ear. The results should be permanent. Finally, Dr. Kim performs your post-operative evaluation and care to ensure proper healing and results. Unlike many of his colleagues, Dr. Kim provides direct access to him via cell phone to deal with any concerns you may have after surgery.
