Ear Surgery

What Is Ear Surgery?

Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a plastic surgery procedure that can enhance the appearance of the ears. Ear surgery can reshape the ears, improve their size or protrusion, or correct ear deformities. It can also improve the appearance of stretched or gauged earlobes. Even patients who are missing one or both ears from birth or injury can have new ears constructed with otoplasty. Dr. Feldmar performs ear surgery at his Feldmar aesthetics practice to help normalize patients’ ears and improve their appearance, confidence, and self-image.

Considering Ear Surgery?

Many individuals experience self-esteem issues, poor self-confidence, and social anxiety or ridicule due to the appearance of their ears. Children are particularly vulnerable to emotional and psychological trauma from the mockery from other children. Otoplasty can enhance your ears and boost your self-esteem and confidence.

  • Correct ear deformities or injuries

  • Reduce ear size or protrusion

  • Rebuild a missing ear

  • Boost self-esteem and confidence


Your Otoplasty Experience

During your initial consultation, Dr. Feldmar will evaluate your goals and your ears to determine the best way to improve your ear appearance. Age and timing are particularly important factors that will influence what changes are possible.

Recovery After Ear Surgery

Immediately After

A soft, bulky dressing will be applied to each ear to promote healing and effective molding of the tissues. Patients should avoid sleeping on their sides and may relieve any mild discomfort with pain medications. A headband may be recommended for temporarily regular wear to hold the ears in their desired position.

5 to 7 Days

The stitches will dissolve or will be removed. Adults can usually return to work after five days. Children can return to school after one week if they are careful about playground activity. If applicable, the headband should still be worn consistently. Patients should continue to avoid sleeping on their sides.

2 Weeks

Patients can stop wearing the headband but should avoid any activity that could bend the ears, including sleeping on their sides.

1 Month to 6 Weeks

Patients should feel back to normal, resume all normal activities, and be able to fully enjoy their results.
