Is Ear Surgery Right for You?

Keloid scar removal from the back side of the earlobe - before and after.

If you are feeling self-conscious about your ears, for whatever reason, then ear surgery may be the answer for you. Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, is a surgical procedure used to move the ears closer to the head, reshape the ears, or reduce the ears in size. Ear surgery is a permanent procedure that can be performed on both children and adults. The best age for children is over the age of 5 after their ears are fully developed. Ear surgery will create a more natural shape while bringing proportion and balance to the face. Dr. Maurice Khosh is an expert in ear surgeon and has performed many types of ear surgeries.

Types of Ear Surgeries

Ear Pinning Surgery: This is a surgery to change the appearance and reshape the ears. This surgery will correct ears that are protruding from the head, oversized or are misshapen. An incision will be made in the back of the ear and place stitches and adjusts them to bend the cartilage.

Torn Earlobe Repair: This surgery is performed to correct and repair earlobes that were torn due to trauma or piercings. This is an outpatient procedure done with local anesthesia by placing stitches to the damaged area.

Keloid Scar Repair: Some procedures are performed to remove keloid scars on the ear depending on the size and severity. A keloid is the overgrowth of scar tissue caused by trauma or piercings and could become disfiguring or create functional problems if left untreated.

Cauliflower Ear Repair: Just like keloid scars, cauliflower ear repair can be done by different procedures depending on how severe the trauma was to the ear. Although cauliflower ear is permanent, the appearance may be reversed by corrective ear surgery.

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

Joann M.
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.
Leah G.
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.
