Oversized or protruding ears can have a negative impact on your self-image and self-esteem. Fortunately, cosmetic ear surgery, or otoplasty, corrects the deformities and reposition your ears so they appear more balanced and in proportion to the rest your facial features.
Most people with prominent or protruding ears are born with them. Although some people are not bothered by the appearance of such ears, those with severely prominent or protruding ears may wish to improve their appearance by having corrective surgery.
What is involved in having cosmetic ear surgery?
Otoplasty is a simple office based procedure offering a definitive solution to improve the appearance of prominent or protruding ears. Sedation may be offered to some patients for their comfort.
An otoplasty involves the surgeon making a small incision in the back of the ear. This allows the surgeon to reshape and realign the tissue and cartilage within the ear.
How long does it take to recover from a cosmetic ear procedure?
While individual recovery times vary, most people recover and resume their normal activities and routines a week after surgery. Patients should wear a headband at night during sleep for the first 2 weeks to ensure that the ear does not get pulled forward accidentally during sleep.
