Dr. Schoenberg performs this procedure to correct protruding or otherwise misshapen ears using permanent invisible sutures. The approach is made behind the ear in the natural skin crease to avoid any visible scars.

Generally, otoplasty is done for children as young as eight years, but can be performed on adults as well. Dr. Schoenberg contours the ears to be more proportional to the size and shape of the patient's face and head.
