Otoplasty – Ear Surgery
Ear surgery, also called “otoplasty,” can correct protruding ears and improve the shape, position, and proportion of the ears. Ear surgery can correct defects that are apparent at birth or that become apparent over time. Ear surgery can also correct misshapen ears caused by injury, and it can reduce the size of overly large ears (macrotia). Ideal candidates for ear surgery have ear cartilage that is stable enough for correction.
Recovery And Results From Ear Surgery
Once the surgery is complete, a post-surgical ear garment will be applied to help the ears adapt to their new shape. Your surgeon will give you specific instructions regarding how to care for your dressings. You should arrange for someone to drive you home after surgery and possibly care for you for the first 24 hours. With the ears positioned closer to the head, scars are well-hidden, and scars on the front of the ears will be well-hidden within the folds. You should be able to resume normal activities after about 10 days. Because ear surgery is a highly individualized procedure, results will vary from patient to patient but are typically long lasting.Schedule A Consultation
