Are You Unhappy with the Shape of Your Ears?

Before and After Pic of Young Lady After Ear Pinning Surgery New York NY

Your ears frame your face and define its shape. If the ears protrude, are misshapen or have suffered trauma, you may see very noticeable flaws that draw the eye away from your other features. You may feel tempted to conceal your ears with long hair or a hat, but this is not always a viable solution, and you may find yourself avoiding situations where the ears will be exposed.

Feeling that everybody is staring at an aspect of your appearance that you can’t control will induce anxiety and shame, and you may become less outgoing in social situations. Children and teenagers with protruding ears could find themselves the subject of teasing or bullying, which is damaging to their sense of self-worth.

Choose a Simple Surgical Procedure to Correct Problem Ears

Otoplasty is an ear reshaping surgery that can reduce the size of overly large ears, reshape the helix and shorten the lobule. Protruding ears can be ‘pinned’ close to the head either by making a small incision to bend the ear, or by shaving off a portion of the cartilage.

Doctor Khosh has many years of experience in performing otoplasty procedures and can create a symmetrical, natural look. Some parents seek ear pinning surgery for very young children, but Doctor Khosh does not recommend this procedure for anyone younger than five.

As children grow, producing ears may naturally retract, and if pinned early they can then appear too close to the head. If you are unsatisfied with the results of a previous ear corrective surgery, Doctor Khosh can provide a solution to restore a more organic aesthetic.

Reshape Damaged Ears

It is very common for the ear to suffer trauma. Earlobes are easily injured if piercings are ripped out, leaving a noticeable tear. Constantly wearing large or heavy earrings can cause the earlobe to unnaturally stretch and elongate, and actions such as frequently using a cell phone can exacerbate the issue.

Using ear gauges may have been an exciting fashion choice but distended earlobes could eventually become an unwanted flaw. In most cases, Doctor Khosh can resolve damaged earlobes with a simple surgery under local anaesthetic.

Restore your confidence and get the look you desire today. Contact Doctor Khosh at his New York Surgery to book an appointment.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say


Based on 174 reviews

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
