Otoplasty – Ear Recontouring Procedure
Jacobson and Mardirossian Plastic Surgery Center for Excellence serving patients who suffer from unbalanced or protruding ears in Jupiter, Palm beach and all over Florida.
For many patients who suffer from unbalanced or protruding ears, the otoplasty procedure has helped them attain the picture of beauty that they desire. This procedure—which is popular among men and women—re-contours the ear into a more aesthetically pleasing form.
The otoplasty procedure can be performed in the doctor’s office under local anesthesia. A tiny incision is made in one of the creases behind the ear. The cartilage in the ear structure is repositioned and sutured to produce the desired shape or a position nearer to the head. The incision is then sealed with hidden sutures, leaving a virtually invisible scar.
Following an otoplasty procedure, the patient should wear a surgical dressing which provides protection and compression for 3 to 4 days. There may be some mild discomfort, but the risks for this procedure are otherwise minimal. To further reduce the possibility of infection, an antibiotic ointment should be applied to the incision area during the recovery period.
