Otoplasty

Otoplasty, also known as ear surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to improve the appearance of the ears. There are many reasons why someone may choose to undergo otoplasty. Some people may be unhappy with the appearance of their ears, while others may have prominent or asymmetrical ears. Whatever the reason, otoplasty can help improve the appearance and proportion of the ears. At Pensacola Oral and Facial Surgery, we work with our patients to help achieve their desired results.

Otoplasty Procedure

An Otoplasty procedure can utilized to reshape a deformed ear or reconstruct ear tissue that is missing. During an otoplasty procedure to reshape a prominent ear, the surgeon will make incisions behind the ear and remove excess skin and cartilage. They will then reshape the remaining tissue to achieve the desired size and shape of the ear. In some cases, tissue may be added to the ear to improve its appearance or function.

After the procedure, patients will typically need to wear a headband or wrap around their head for several days to help the ears heal properly. Swelling and bruising are common after otoplasty, but these will gradually subside over time. Most patients are able to return to work and other normal activities within a week or two of the procedure.

A reconstructive otoplasty procedure involves the use of the cartilage from the patient or a cadaver to rebuild missing anatomy. These surgeries usually require multiple stages of treatment to achieve the right shape and projection.

Otoplasty can have a significant impact on a person’s appearance and self-confidence. By improving the shape and size of the ears, patients can achieve a more balanced and harmonious facial profile.
