Are you seeking ear surgery because you are self conscious about the size and shape of your ears? If so, an Otoplasty at the Facial Plastic Surgery Group of NYC may be the best option.
What is ear surgery? Otoplasty is performed by removing skin and reconstructing the cartilage from behind the ear to reduce a prominent ear on one or both sides of the patient. Ear surgery can also be done to correct a torn earlobe and reshape a deformity of the ear. For patients with torn or stretched lobes, ear surgery may be as simple as an ear lobe repair by cutting away excess tissue and closing the wounds with thin, discreet sutures.
An otoplasty will correct the size and shape of large or protruding ears. It can also address ears that are asymmetrical and can reconstruct deformed or damaged earlobes
How is it done? During your ear surgery at the Facial Plastic Surgery Group of NYC, an incision is hidden in the back of the ear. Then, the cartilage is reconstructed to allow the ear to sit closer to the side of the head. The incision is closed using dissolvable sutures.
The procedure takes about 1 hour and the incision is completely hidden and discreet with minimal downtime.
What is the recovery? Ear surgery done at the Facial Plastic Surgery Group of NYC is an outpatient procedure. This means you are able to go home the same day and recover in the comforts of your own home. You must have an escort to take you home but they do not need to take care of you after 24 hours. Post-operative pain is mild and is relieved by the prescribed pain medication. Your ears will have a compression bandage that needs to stay in place for a few days, until your next follow up visit. You may experience slight bruising and swelling that will subside within a few weeks.
