Ear Surgery 

Ear shaping surgery, or otoplasty, is a surgical procedure used to improve the appearance and position of the ears. This procedure can effectively decrease ear and earlobe shape, reduce the protruding nature of the ears, and remove unwanted piercing scars.

Pre and Post Operative Instructions

Ear surgery is an excellent option for patients looking to position their ears closer to the face, reduce their size, or reshape them altogether. Otoplasty is most beneficial for children aged 5-14, but adults of any age can also undergo this procedure.

During your initial consultation, your surgeon will provide a comprehensive exam and discuss your goals to understand if this procedure is best for you.


Before surgery

A patient care concierge will guide you through the entire consultation process, which can be attended in person or virtually. During the consultation, your surgeon will learn about your goals, answer any questions, and perform an examination to create a personalized surgical plan. You will then be matched with a surgical coordinator who will walk you through each step of the preoperative process.

During surgery

Your surgeon will make a small incision behind the ear along the natural contours for inconspicuousness. To close the incisions, your surgeon will use a unique layered suturing technique that decreases tension during the healing process and allows minimal scarring.

After surgery

This minimally invasive procedure requires little downtime, allowing you to return to your routine quickly. Patients are instructed to wear protective bandages for a week during the initial healing process and during the following month at night or during sports.

Your surgeon will provide specific instructions for optimal post-operative care, including an advanced scar management protocol after the initial healing period. Your surgical team is always available and will closely monitor your recovery in the weeks and months following surgery.
