Chin implants can increase the size and projection of a chin that does not project in proportion with the forehead and mid-face. An implant can be used to correct a small or recessed chin often called a “weak chin”.
Ladies, do you consistently wear your hair down? Or guys, do you tuck your ears in hats? Did you notice that your ears were pulled forward or appeared more prominent while wearing a protective facial covering during the pandemic? Or are you concerned about your child’s ears sticking out? Prominent ears can be a serious problem for many patients, both adults and children, and evoke feelings of upset or self-consciousness over one’s appearance. It can also be a source of teasing from peers.
But there’s a solution for prominent ears: ear-pinning surgery. The procedure, also known as otoplasty, can correct large ears or ears that stick out.
Dr. Jack Peterson is a dual-board-certified otolaryngologist (ENT) and plastic surgeon and offers patients the otoplasty procedure for individuals who have large ears or ears that stick out.
