What is an Otoplasty?
Otoplasty Before & After Photos
About the Procedure
Depending on the goal and needs of the patient, small amounts of cartilage and skin may be removed, and the ear will be subtly reshaped to achieve a more aesthetically-pleasing appearance.
To pin back protruding ears, permanent sutures may be used. Typically, both ears will be operated on to ensure a symmetrical appearance, even if only one ear is misshapen. After the procedure is complete, a pressure dressing is placed over the ears to keep them in place while they heal.
Why have an Otoplasty?
Before your procedure, you will meet with Dr. Sinha for an initial consultation. During this appointment, Dr. Sinha will explain everything you need to know about ear surgery, as well as answer all the questions you may have regarding the procedure.
This consultation is a space for you to discuss your concerns and set your aesthetic goals. You will also discuss your expectations, as well as your medical history. It is essential that you come to your appointment with an open mind, willing to learn about the procedure and how it can change your life.
What can I expect after my Otoplasty procedure?
In general, this surgery has minimal downtime, with most people returning to their normal activities within five to seven days after the procedure. Though recovery is usually speedy, intense physical activity, such as exercise and sports, should be avoided in the first month.
There is usually very little pain or bruising following ear surgery. However, if pain shall occur, your doctor will advise you on how to manage symptoms efficiently.
Your doctor will provide you with a post-op care plan with detailed instructions on how to care for the area after your surgery. For rapid recovery, it's important that you follow your doctor's instructions at all times.
Ear Surgery FAQs
How long does the procedure take?
An Otoplasty typically takes about two hours to complete — and it's an outpatient procedure. This means patients can return home the same day of their intervention.
What can I expect from my Otoplasty surgery?
On the day of your surgery, our friendly staff will support you through your intervention, from start to finish. Your well being is our priority, and we want to make sure you feel comfortable, secure, and ready for your procedure. We recommend you book an initial consultation with us if you're interested in learning more about Otoplasty surgery.
Can children undergo Otoplasty surgery?
Children can undergo Otoplasty once their doctor has confirmed their ears are fully developed.
What kind of anesthesia is used during the procedure?
Otoplasty is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia.
Will the procedure leave visible scars?
During an otoplasty, small incisions are made within the natural fold behind the ear, so minimal scarring is visible after the operation.
