Otoplasty in Charlotte, NC

Reshape Your Confidence

What is an Otoplasty?

Otoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to alter the shape, size, or position of the ears. It's commonly done to correct prominent ears, where the ears stick out more than normal, or to reshape ears that are misshapen due to genetics or injury. When people consider the overall appearance and shape of their face and head, it’s easy to overlook the aesthetic impact of the size and shape of their ears. Whether it’s ears that seem disproportionately large compared to other features, or ears that project from the head at an extreme angle. With an otoplasty Charlotte plastic surgeon, Adam C. Augenstein, MD, can address these concerns, creating a pleasing overall sense of proportion and improving self-esteem.

Improved Facial Harmony

Otoplasty can bring balance and symmetry to the face by adjusting the size, shape, and position of the ears, contributing to a more aesthetically pleasing overall facial profile.

Long-lasting Results

Otoplasty typically provides permanent results, meaning once the desired changes are made, they can be enjoyed for years to come with proper post-operative care.

Correction of Congenital or Traumatic Deformities:

Otoplasty can address congenital abnormalities or deformities resulting from injury, helping individuals achieve a more normal appearance and improved functionality of the ears.

Minimally Invasive Options Available:

Depending on the specific concerns and goals of the individual, minimally invasive otoplasty techniques may be utilized, leading to faster recovery times and reduced scarring compared to traditional surgical methods.

Am I a Candidate for an Otoplasty?

Unlike many other cosmetic procedures, Charlotte otoplasty patients are often young, as the procedure can safely be performed as soon as the ears are done growing, which tends to occur by the age of 5 or 6. Candidates for otoplasty typically include individuals who are bothered by the appearance of their ears and desire to improve their shape, size, or position.

Ultimately, the best way to determine candidacy for otoplasty is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Augenstein, who can assess your individual concerns, goals, and medical history. He can provide personalized recommendations and guidance based on your specific needs.

Charlotte Otoplasty

Whether it's reducing the prominence of protruding ears or reshaping asymmetrical contours, otoplasty offers a personalized approach to ear transformation, empowering individuals to feel comfortable and proud of their appearance.


The procedure typically takes between one and two hours, although the duration depends largely on the extent of the transformation. This procedure can be done under local or general anesthetic and the incisions are well hidden behind the ear in the vast majority of patients. Following an otoplasty Charlotte patients typically experience some minor swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort around the ears.

Results and Recovery

Recovery is relatively fast with most patients resuming their normal routines within several days. Otoplasty typically provides permanent results, meaning the changes made to the shape, size, or position of the ears should be long-lasting. Overall, otoplasty can be a highly rewarding procedure for patients seeking to enhance the appearance of their ears, with results that improve both aesthetic appearance and self-confidence.
