What is Otoplasty (ear surgery)?

Ear surgery, also known as Otoplasty, is a surgical procedure to improve the ears' shape, position, or proportion. It can be performed for various reasons, such as correcting ear malformations due to genetics, injury, or trauma, enhancing the cosmetic appearance of the ears, addressing misshapen ear cartilage in both children and adults, treating overly large ears (macrotia), or reducing ears that protrude unilaterally or bilaterally. Otoplasty is a precise and delicate surgery that requires the expertise of a skilled plastic surgeon with a deep understanding of the intricate ear structures. The goal is to achieve natural-looking results and create a more balanced, harmonious facial appearance.

Is ear surgery right for me?

Ear surgery is a versatile procedure suitable for many individuals, including anyone looking to correct ear malformations resulting from genetics, injury, or trauma. It is also an excellent choice for individuals who wish to enhance the aesthetic appearance of their ears, addressing concerns such as prominent or misshapen ear cartilage, overly large ears, or unilateral and bilateral ear protrusion. Additionally, this procedure can benefit adult patients who have previously undergone Otoplasty and desire further ear appearance improvements. Overall, this procedure offers tailored solutions to enhance the ears' cosmetic and functional aspects.

The ear surgery procedure What to expect

Ear surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia, ensuring your comfort throughout the procedure. We make small, inconspicuous incisions within the crease behind the ears. These incisions grant access to the ear cartilage, which is then carefully sculpted and repositioned to create a more aesthetically pleasing shape. If necessary, excess conchal cartilage and skin are gently removed before closing the incisions.

Otoplasty relies on precise surgical techniques to achieve natural-looking results, avoiding the appearance of unnaturally "pinned back" ears. The procedure usually takes a few hours to complete. Otoplasty is founded on understanding the ear's anatomical structures and their role in shaping the overall facial appearance, ensuring that the desired improvements align with each individual’s goals.

Ear surgery recovery

Following ear surgery, you can expect a recovery process allowing you to return to your daily activities within 1 to 2 weeks. However, avoiding vigorous physical exertion for an additional 4 to 6 weeks is recommended. Specialized pain medication is often prescribed to manage any post-surgical discomfort. A surgical dressing is applied and must be kept in place for 24 to 36 hours. At the one-week follow-up appointment, you can begin to witness the visible improvements in the shape and position of their ears, with ongoing enhancements over the next 4 to 6 weeks as any residual swelling subsides. This gradual process ensures a natural and balanced appearance, emphasizing the importance of working with skilled plastic surgeons familiar with the intricacies of ear anatomy and the aesthetic objectives of the procedure, like our doctors at Muse Plastic Surgery. During recovery, follow-up appointments help monitor the healing process, ensuring that your results align with your cosmetic goals.
