Am I A Candidate For Otoplasty?

At five years old, most children’s ear cartilage is stable enough for correction surgery. We also look for children who follow instructions well and are able to voice their feelings about a potential surgery.

Adults are good candidates for ear surgery if they are healthy without any medical conditions that may inhibit their healing process. People who are dissatisfied with a previous surgery or who have suffered an injury are also eligible for reconstructive ear surgery.

Ear Surgery Procedure Details

There are multiple anesthesia options available to patients and Dr. Reyna will advise the best option for you or your child depending on your needs. The surgery is an outpatient procedure that usually lasts two to three hours.

During surgery, Dr. Reyna will make an incision on the back  of the ear or where the ear meets the head. These incisions are easily hidden because they are behind the ear. Through the incisions, Dr. Reyna will remove excess cartilage or sculpt cartilage to improve the shape of the ear.

Dr. Reyna will close the incisions with personalized stitches that align with the natural curves and shape of the ears. You can feel comfortable your results will look natural and beautiful.

Your Results and Recovery

The results of an otoplasty will be noticeable immediately, but patients will need to wear protective bandages for about a week after surgery. Bandages and dressing will promote healing and keep the new ear shape positioned correctly.

Swelling, discomfort, and some itchiness may be felt the first week after surgery, which is easily controlled with medication.
