Ear Surgery

Member Response:

Good day and thank you for your questions. Dr. Monasebian, our Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, will answer your questions. He is also trained in Maxillofacial surgery and has worked over 30 years in treating the face. Dr. Monasebian would have to see you and examine you to look at your ears as well as the rest of your face. Surgical correction of prominent ears is known as otoplasty. The procedure can be performed on children and adults. The procedure involves removing excess skin from behind the ear and reshaping the cartilage so as to make the ear lie closer to the face. We would be happy to see you if you are in the New York City area. We look forward to meeting you soon. Regards, Dr. Monasebian and Park Avenue Plastic Surgery.

Do i have a weak chin?

Chin Surgery

Member Response:

Good day and thank you for your question. Dr. Monasebian, our Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, will answer your questions. He is also trained in Maxillofacial surgery and has worked over 30 years in treating the face. Dr. Monasebian would have to see you and examine you to look at your chin as well as the rest of your face and jaws. In treating the chin one could also treat the mandible or lower jaw. If your bite is off and you have a malocclusion, then the best way to treat is through a combination of orthodontics (braces) and surgery. Of course this determination can only be made after a full examination. Advancing the mandible will elongate the chin as well. If your bite is normal and the concern is only the chin, then chin implant surgery or an osteotomy to surgically advance the chin may be indicated. We would be happy to see you if you are in the New York City area. We look forward to meeting you soon. Regards, Dr. Monasebian and Park Avenue Plastic Surgery.
