Thanks for your question regarding unilateral otoplasty. We certainly can choose to setback one ear only. Typically we used the ear that the patient is happy with as a template and match the ear which protrudes to that side. Often however during consultation, once the patient understands aesthetics, they choose to setback the less prominent ear as well. It is more common that we see people who have had otoplasty performed elsewhere and have one ear which is recurrent or asymmetric. In these instances, only one side is addressed. During your consultation we can discuss the aesthetics of both of your ears and determine whether you would like to only address the more prominent side or whether you would benefit more by having both sides addressed. There are many examples of otoplasty on our website as well as additional information. I encourage you to spend some time looking around and we will look forward to seeing you.
