What is an Otoplasty?
An otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that adjusts the shape and size of the ears. Ears that are large or protrude from the face can cause both men and women to be self-conscious. This can affect people of all ages, which is why this procedure is offered to both children and adults. Since the appearance of the ear is largely dependent on the cartilage, ear surgery is easily performed by removing and reshaping the cartilage.
What Can I Expect from an Otoplasty Procedure?
An otoplasty can last anywhere from one to three hours. The procedure is performed by making a small incision in the ear through which the cartilage can be accessed. Then, Dr. Afrooz will use a variety of ear shaping techniques to sculpt the ears into the patient’s desired shape.
How is Recovery from an Otoplasty?
After an otoplasty, the ears are bandaged for approximately a week. For the weeks following surgery, we recommend that patients be extremely careful when sleeping to prevent the ears from folding before they are completely healed. We also recommend that patients avoid contact sports or other activities that could induce trauma to the ears. Resting and protecting the ears is essential to a proper recovery.
