26 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

Otoplasty, ear pinning and ear reshaping (all types of ear surgeries), involves reshaping the ears to look less prominent and/or more aesthetically pleasing. Men, women, and children often seek ear surgery for various reasons such as protruding ears, damaged ear lobes, congenital defects, correction of asymmetrical features, and more. Dr. Williams is highly skilled when it comes to ear surgery as he has over 20 years of surgical experience. If you are bothered by the shape of your ears, schedule a consultation today to see what can be done to improve your ear size, shape or position.

Best Candidates

Ear surgery can be performed on individuals of any age. Good candidates are men or women who demonstrate:

  • Self-confidence issues because of the size or shape of their ears
  • Protruding ears that stick out
  • Large or oversized ears
  • Under developed ear cartilage
  • Torn earlobes due to heavy jewelry or ear trauma

What to Expect

Otoplasty begins with an incision behind the ear so that the cartilage can be exposed. This cartilage is then reshaped until the ear takes on a better appearance. Excess skin can also be removed.

If an earlobe needs to be repaired, the procedure can usually be performed in the office under local anesthesia with minimal downtime or discomfort.

Recovery From Ear Surgery

Swelling and bruising can be minimal after otoplasty. The swelling and bruising will start to resolve during the first couple of weeks after surgery, although this will vary between patients. A head dressing is applied immediately after surgery and removed at the first office visit. An elastic headband must be worn for several more weeks for protection. Patients must avoid strenuous activity for a minimum of 1 – 2 months following surgery. Children will need to be monitored closely so that they do not pick or scratch at their ears during the healing phase.
