When this 26-year-old young lady from Virginia Beach came to consult with me, she had been bothered by her prominent ears for quite some time.  During her pre-operative exam, we noted that she had large conchal bowls (A), poor development of the anti-helical folds (B) and very prominent earlobes (C).  Because her left ear was more prominent,  we discussed improving symmetry, as well.  During surgery, extra tissue was partially removed.  Since the outside part of the ear curved outward, the cartilage was weakened and sutures were used to mold it into a more aesthtetic shape, which can be seen in the photos taken from the side.  Finally, skin was removed to pull the earlobes back.  In her before and after pictures, both in front and back views, we can see much less prominent ears and a great improvement in symmetry.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

We are excited to announce our reopening as of May 1st. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: Our commitment to your safety.

Consultations are available in our office and we will continue to offer Virtual Consultations as well. You will be asked to complete your registration paperwork in our secure patient portal prior to your appointment and your consultation fee will be collected by phone to minimize contact.

Here are a few changes we have made as we transition to this new era:

  • Please reschedule your appointment if you are not feeling well, have a fever, have been exposed to anyone with Covid-19 or travelled internationally within the last month.
  • We will limit the number of people in the building and waiting area to maintain social distancing and our staff will be wearing masks until restrictions are eased.
  • Please wear a mask during your visit but do not wear gloves. You will be given hand sanitizer.
