Ear surgery, known medically as otoplasty, is most typically used to correct prominent or protruding ears, though more unusual deformities may also be addressed. These ear concerns can help people of all ages but they can have the most powerful psychological benefits in children or adolescents who may have to deal with the often cruel teasing and bullying of their peers. Glendale-based board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sepideh Saber understands the difficulties individuals may experience when struggling with insecurities regarding their ear shape or size, and she is proud to offer a solution to help those in need.
In addition, Dr. Saber offers earlobe repair surgery and keloid scar removal. Earlobe repair surgery aims to restore the normal appearance of an earlobe that may have been injured or stretched as a result of trauma or use of jewelry such as heavy earrings and gauges. Keloid scar removal involves the correction of an ear deformity caused by an excessive buildup of scar tissue on the ear as a result of piercings or trauma.
