Ear Surgery


Ear SurgeryEar surgery, or otoplasty, is a surgical procedure that reshapes your ear. It helps set prominent ears closer to the head or reduces the size of larger ears.

The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, and many times can be performed in the doctor’s office under local anesthesia. Patients generally return to work within a week and to strenuous activities within two weeks. Results are usually permanent.

Earlobe Repair and Reduction: Earlobes continue to grow and can hang low and contribute to the aging look. A simple removal of excess skin under local anesthesia reduces their overall size or corrects an enlarged earring hole.

Potential complications include bleeding, infection, scarring, mismatched or artificial-looking ears, or recurrence of the protrusion, which would require follow-up surgery.
