My goal is to provide my macrotia patients with natural, beautiful results

Dr. Hilinski has focused a segment of his practice on cosmetic ear surgery – specifically surgery to make your ears smaller in size. This is also termed macrotia ear reduction surgery. He has unparalleled qualifications and experience in this highly specialized niche procedure – having performed this type of surgery on a regular basis for many years now. In fact, he is arguably the most experienced plastic surgeon in the world when it comes to reducing the size of your ear.

Dr. Hilinski earned his medical degree from Harvard Medical School – the top medical school in the country. He then completed a general surgery internship and head and neck surgery residency at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Medical Center. This led to Dr. Hilinski being chosen by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery for a selective fellowship in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.

Since starting practice in San Diego, Dr. Hilinski has since developed an international reputation for producing consistently beautiful, natural results for patients seeking to have their large ears made smaller.
