Who Is a Candidate for Ear Surgery?

Children with overly large or prominent ears often deal with fairly difficult social situations, experiencing bullying from their peers. This can have a negative impact on their self-esteem. Ear surgery for children can prevent years of social trauma and enable a child to feel more comfortable with and confident in their appearance as they grow up. Adults often consider ear surgery for similar reasons or are interested in this procedure to repair earlobes that have become torn or damaged. Earlobes can be torn or damaged as a result of injury or trauma, but it can also result from wearing large gauges or other types of piercings. Your surgeon will design a customized surgical plan to repair or shape your ears proportionately, leaving you happy with their appearance.

The Ear Surgery Procedure

During your preoperative consultation, your surgeon will ensure that you know what to expect and feel confident going into your surgery. At Studio Plastic Surgery, we realize that no two patients are the same. We customize every procedure around the patient’s personal goals and unique physical characteristics. Before your procedure, your surgeon will cover incision placement and what to expect during your recovery period, and provide an opportunity for you to ask any further questions.

The duration of your procedure will vary according to the specifics of your treatment plan. Ear surgery is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, which means you will be completely asleep. Once your surgeon completes the procedure, he will meticulously close the incisions to keep scarring to an absolute minimum. After spending some time in our recovery area, you will be able to go home with a family member or friend to drive you.

Recovery and Results After Ear Surgery

Your ears will be bandaged after your surgery is complete. You will be given a head garment to wear during the initial stages of your recovery period. We will provide aftercare instructions and a detailed timeline to help you know what to expect during the recovery process. Most patients are healed and able to enjoy their final results within four to six weeks, depending on the specifics of their procedure.
