Plastic Surgery Solutions is proud to offer its patients the best cosmetic surgery procedures, including otoplasty.
Otoplasty is a cosmetic procedure used to reshape the pinna, or outer ear. It can be done for a variety of reasons, including reducing large ears and making them more symmetrical and proportionate to the rest of your face. The shape of the ears can be affected by genetic factors or medical conditions, or by an injury. The surgery is typically performed on children after the age of five when the ears have reached their full size. The surgery can also be performed on adults. If you are dissatisfied with the size or shape of your ears, otoplasty surgery can help.Schedule Appointment
Otoplasty surgery brings protruding ears closer to the sides of the face. An otoplasty is an outpatient procedure that takes one to three hours and is performed under either general or local anesthesia. Incisions can be made behind the ears or within the creases of the ears. The tissue will be manipulated, and skin and cartilage may be removed. The cartilage of the ear may be folded and shaped, or new cartilage may be grafted and transplanted.Schedule Appointment
Otoplasty surgery is a cosmetic procedure performed to correct an irregularity or improve the appearance of the ears. The surgery can reshape the ears to reduce their prominence and address structural problems such as a congenital anomaly, injury, or other trauma. Irregular ears can be a source of immense psychological stress for people, and this procedure can give patients back their confidence. At Plastic Surgery Solutions, we believe that each person deserves to feel confident in their appearance and comfortable with their body. Dr. John Louis, a board-certified plastic surgeon at PSS, will consult you before surgery to tailor the procedure to your specific anatomical features to achieve the most natural-looking results.Schedule Appointment
Every surgical procedure has the potential for complications. Otoplasty is a fairly common procedure; however, before the surgery, your board-certified plastic surgeon will go over everything with you and make you aware of any complications.
The patient may be sore for a few days following surgery. For about two weeks, there may be minor bruising, and some patients may experience numbness and tingling for a few weeks after the procedure.
The length of recovery will be determined by the extent of the surgery. A dressing will be placed over the ears and may be left on for several days. Following removal of the dressing, the patient may need to wear a protective headband over their ears.
Scarring does occur after otoplasty surgery, but it is usually hidden behind your ears or within the creases of your ears. Scars will be discreet if an otoplasty is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon.
Otoplasty surgery can be combined with other cosmetic facial rejuvenation procedures like a facelift, brow lift, or neck lift.
