Feel Confident With Ear Reshaping Surgery
Many people, starting from childhood, are uncomfortable with the size or shape of their ears. If you are self-conscious because your ears are asymmetrical, protrude out, or droop too low, otoplasty, also known as ear plastic surgery, is available to help you feel comfortable and address this concern.
What is the procedure?
Otoplasty is a type of plastic surgery focused on cosmetically altering the shape or size of the ear. It is often referred to as ear pinning, ear tuck, or ear plastic surgery. Used to shape one or both ears, otoplasty can also include ear or earlobe reduction techniques and cauliflower ear surgery to remove and re-contour excess skin and cartilage. Due to the prominence of the ears, many people who undergo this treatment experience a life-changing increase in confidence. The disproportion of the ears can include the superior, middle or inferior parts of the ear.
How it works
Ear tucking and reshaping surgery are often performed on children between the ages of four and fourteen, as people’s ears reach their full size by age four. Adults can also benefit from ear tuck surgery. This procedure is most commonly performed with general anesthesia or anesthesia with sedation. The procedure takes approximately 1 to 2 hours and is an outpatient procedure. Recovery time is approximately one week. You will be restricted from exercising or strenuous activity for approximately four weeks. Surgery is usually performed with minimal visible scarring.
