As many as 30% of children are born with some type of congenital ear deformity. Stahl’s ear deformity is a condition where the upper portion of the ear cartilage is flat, coming to a point at the top of the ear. While this ear formation does not pose a risk to health or the child’s hearing, it can be a distracting and undesirable feature. Renowned facial surgeon Dr. Lesley Rabach at LM Medical NYC offers Stahl’s ear deformity surgery at our medical facility in Manhattan.

Pointed ears may look cute on a baby, but it can be a feature that is less desirable as they get older. Kids can be cruel, as can adults. Some children can feel embarrassed or self-conscious about their misshaped ears, impacting their self-confidence. Stahl’s ear correction can reshape the upper ear cartilage to a rounded shape, eliminating this distracting feature. Ear plastic surgery can be performed on children, usually recommended once their ears are mature and fully developed.

Pediatric Ear Reshaping

Some children born with Stahl’s ear deformity can undergo non-surgical ear molding within two months after they are born to reshape the ear cartilage. This is not always effective, as it depends on the severity of the deformity. For older children, Stahl’s ear correction surgery can be performed at about age five or six when their ears are mature.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is a top facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon with dual board certifications in her field. Plus, she is a mother of three and understands how difficult a decision it is to decide to have elective surgery on a child. Her compassion, skillset and expertise make her an excellent plastic surgeon choice for performing Stahl’s ear deformity surgery on your child.

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!
