Cosmetic surgery of the ear, or otoplasty, is an aesthetic procedure that alters the size, position, or proportion of the ears. The outcome of ear reshaping surgery varies greatly depending on the changes that are desired, but these procedures generally improve self-confidence, especially in children and teenagers. If the ears stick out, ear pinning can be performed to flatten the ears against the head. If one ear is positioned higher than the other, ear repositioning can create symmetry. Large, oversized ears can be addressed alone or in conjunction with other ear issues.
When to Consider Ear Surgery
• If you were born with overly large or small ears
• If your ears are disproportionate to your head or oddly placed
• If your ears stick out prominently
• If you have suffered an injury that has negatively impacted the shape or positioning of your ears
How long does the procedure take?
Every situation is unique, but generally Otoplasty surgery is about 1-2 hours long depending on the extent of correction.
Will it be performed under local or general anesthesia?
Either, depending on the age of the patient and the physician recommendation.
How long will I be out of work?
About 1 week with further restrictions depending on work/school activities.
