Dr. Steven Rueda is one of the most sought after ear surgeons in Palm Beach. His attention to detail and methodical technique create beautiful and natural results. Ear surgery, formally known as otoplasty, is a facial plastic surgery procedure that improves the overall aesthetic appearance of the ear. In this procedure the ear cartilage and skin are repositioned or reshaped to obtain the desired appearance. Most commonly known as “ear pinning”, the procedure is performed to correct protruding ears. The procedure can be performed in children and adults. Most commonly it is performed in children and young adults, as this is the period of life when criticism from peers or friends occurs. Earlobe repair, also known as earlobe surgery, is also a common form of ear surgery. This procedure is performed to repair torn, stretched, or split earlobes caused by accidents, piercings, or heavy earrings. The surgery uses the existing earlobe tissue to create a new one by reshaping and repositioning the skin.


Dr. Rueda performs ear surgery with a combination of cartilage contouring, removal, and molding with sutures to create a natural result. Patients may require some or all of these methods to achieve the ideal outcome. Dr. Rueda performs all of these procedures using a single hidden incision behind the ear.
