What is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty is a cosmetic surgery of the ears. The procedure does not affect your hearing, and it is does specifically intended to reconstruct the ears. Otoplasty is recommended for:
- Asymmetry between the ears
- Overly large ears
- Underdeveloped or small ear lobes
- Ears that stand out from the head
What Are the Benefits of Ear Surgery?
The primary goal of ear surgery is to bring a better balance to your facial features. Any disproportionate feature, such as the ears, draws attention away from your overall appearance and creates disharmony.
What Should I Expect from My Otoplasty?
We use several techniques for our otoplasty procedures. The incisions are placed along the natural creases and folds of the ear so that the scars are not visible after you fully heal. Otoplasty may involve:
- Removal of soft tissue
- Fat grafting
- Removal or sculpting of cartilage
After the surgery, your ears are wrapped with a bandage. The most important aspect of the healing process is that you be very careful not to damage the ears. Cartilage can take some time to heal, and even the slightest impact can affect the final results.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Ear surgery results in permanent changes to your ear shape and size.
