How Ear Surgery Can Help Address Protruding or Disproportionate Ears

Ear surgery
If you are someone who was born with more prominent ears or ears that stick out further from the side of the head than you would like, you may be a candidate for ear surgery. This treatment option, also known as otoplasty, can reshape your ears and bring them closer to your head. Here is what you need to know.

What Are the Benefits of Otoplasty?

There are several benefits that you can expect from ear surgery. One of the biggest benefits that you will receive is the correction of prominent ears. This surgery effectively pulls your ears closer to your head. This can help enhance your facial features and create a more flattened facial profile.

Another benefit you can expect is increased self-confidence. You no longer have to feel like people are staring at your ears. Instead, you can feel much more confident about your looks. Additionally, otoplasty results are permanent. This means that you will never have to worry about your ears shifting outward again. Above all, ear surgery is extremely safe and has a relatively short recovery period. This ensures that you are going to be able to enjoy the results you have achieved in a short time.

What Happens During Ear Surgery?

At your initial consultation with our surgeon, we will examine your ears and talk with you about what you would like to see from your surgery. On the day of your surgery, you will undergo general anesthesia, meaning you will be asleep for the entire surgical process.

Our surgeon will make a small incision behind your ear, where we will remove any excess cartilage, allowing them to resize and reshape your ears. Then, we will close the incision with tiny stitches that will stay hidden behind your ears as you heal.
