About Ear Surgery

Otoplasty can be performed on children as young as five years old and can also be performed on older patients for cosmetic or reconstructive benefits. Our skilled, specialty-trained plastic surgeons perform otoplasty procedures in our accredited in-office surgery suite on an outpatient basis.

The “pinning back” of the ears is most common for ear surgeries at our practice. However, we also provide surgical procedures for the correction of deformities from traumatic injuries, earlobe tears, elongated earlobes, and more.

Best Candidates

Otoplasty patients should be at least 5-years-old and have one of the following concerns:

  • Ears that protrude or stick out from the head
  • Ears that are misshapen from a trauma or congenital defect
  • Ears that are disproportionately large compared to the head
  • Earlobes that are torn or elongated

What to Expect

Otoplasty reshapes the ears by making small incisions behind the ear to expose the cartilage. The cartilage is then removed and reshaped until the ear reaches the desired size and shape. Any excess skin is removed from the ear and in some cases the ears will be repositioned closer to the head. The technique to treat protrusion (ears that stick out from the head) is commonly referred to as the “pinning back” of the ears. The overall goal of otoplasty is to give patients natural-looking ears and to restore their self-confidence.

Other Considerations

Patients can expect swelling and bruising after undergoing otoplasty. However, this will subside after the first couple of weeks of recovery. An elastic headband is usually worn for the first several weeks after surgery to keep the ears in their new position and patients are advised to avoid strenuous work for approximately 1 – 2 months after their surgery. Children who have otoplasty will need to be closely monitored throughout the healing process, so they do not compromise the healing of their ears or cause agitation by rubbing or scratching.

Improve Your Ears

Otoplasty can help patients, especially children, enjoy the way they look and restore their confidence and happiness. Having misshapen or excessively large ears can cause unwanted attention and teasing that can affect self-esteem. We encourage anyone who is looking into otoplasty for themselves or their children to schedule a consultation at Inspire Aesthetics in Fort Lauderdale or Delray Beach, FL. It is our goal to help you feel good about your appearance.
