About Cosmetic Ear Surgery
Ears that stick outwards and protrude, are misshapen and uneven, or are visibly too large can have a negative impact and can affect your self-confidence, especially during childhood. Ear reshaping surgery (also known as otoplasty) is a cosmetic treatment that can assist in redefining the size and shape of the ears to create a pleasing look. Dr. David G. Genecov, Dr. Carlos Raul Barceló and Dr. Huay-Zong Law are talented plastic surgeons who have assisted countless adults and children to overcome the fear of showing off their ears by having this life-changing facial surgery. Regardless of the deformity, ear surgery allows an individual to display their face with a newfound confidence.

Ear Surgery Ideal Candidates
Ear surgery can be done on a patient at any age; however, it is extremely common among young children and is suggested before reaching elementary school. By age 6, this treatment is safe to be performed on a child. If you are self-conscious by the appearance of your ears because they stick out or are too large, otoplasty may be the ideal surgery to attain a natural-looking appearance. If you suffer from a damaged earlobe, you are also a candidate for otoplasty.

Ear Surgery Surgical Technique
Cosmetic ear surgery is completed using a form of anesthesia. In most cases, the incision is made near the back of the ear or inside the inner ear folds. During surgery, cartilage may be removed or added to create a more natural appearance. It is normal for both ears to be touched during surgery to ensure they look and appear balanced. Once the ears are surgically corrected, the incisions are closed with sutures and are bandaged so they can remain safeguarded for healing.
What to Expect with Ear Surgery
Following treatment, it is safe to leave the outpatient surgery center so you can rest and recover at home. We will provide a healing protocol with detailed instructions. It is important not to touch your ears for the first few days post-surgery. Furthermore, patients are encouraged to sleep in an upright position for the next several nights to avoid laying on their ears. We will ask to see our ear surgery patients back within the first week — during this time, we’ll remove the bandages and assess the surgical incisions. The results are noticeable almost immediately and the effects from surgery will continue to improve as you heal.
Show Your Face From All Angles
Cosmetic ear surgery is a common treatment that improves the look of the ears while also improving function. This cosmetic surgery allows patients the opportunity to reclaim their self-esteem.
