What Is Ear Surgery?
While they’re not typically considered a prominent part of the face, ears are very important for facial balance and harmony. Whether from birth defects, developmental disorders, or traumatic life events, damage caused to the cosmetic appearance of your ears can cause stress, discomfort, and lack of self-confidence.
Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to improve the appearance of your ears. If you’re unhappy with the shape, size, or position of your ears, Discreet Plastic Surgery can help.
Cosmetic ear surgery — also known as otoplasty — is a surgical procedure designed to correct protruding and unsightly ears so that your ears are more aesthetically pleasing and balanced in shape and size with your face.
What Cosmetic Issues Does Ear
The goal of otoplasty is to make your ears appear more shapely, natural, and well-proportioned to the rest of your face.
Some common reasons that patients seek out this procedure include:
- Reducing the size of excessively large ears
- Correcting protruding ears by setting them back closer to your head
- Recreating the natural folds or contours of your ear
- Correcting stretched or torn earlobes
How Does Otoplasty Work?
If you’re considering cosmetic ear surgery, it’s important to understand how the procedure works and what it involves.
After a consultation and evaluation to determine what changes need to be made, Dr. Doshi or Dr. Kaufman will customize a treatment plan that works for your specific goals. During the surgery, your surgeon will typically make incisions behind the ear to minimize scarring before reshaping the cartilage and tissue of your ears so that they’re more balanced in shape and size.
Recovery typically takes several days, during which you’ll need to wear bandages to help protect the area and promote healing. You may experience some discomfort and swelling, but nothing that you can’t manage with medication. Dr. Kaufman or Dr. Doshi may also give you specific instructions for how to take care of your ears during the recovery process
How Can Ear Surgery
Like many cosmetic procedures, one of the key benefits of otoplasty is that it can improve your self-esteem. Many patients who have undergone this procedure report feeling more comfortable and confident in social situations — both in their personal and professional lives — especially if they were previously self-conscious about the size or shape of their ears.
