Ear Surgery Fredericksburg

Otoplasty places the ears in proportion to the size and shape of the face and head.

Whether it is for a small child or an adult, perhaps no other physical characteristic cries out for facial plastic surgery more than protruding ears.


Before

After

The aim of otoplasty is to place the ears in proportion to the size and shape of the face and head. It does not alter hearing ability.

Surgery begins with an incision just behind the ear, in the natural fold where the ear joins the head. The surgeon will then remove the necessary amounts of cartilage and skin required to achieve the right effect.

After sculpturing the cartilage to the desired shape, the surgeon will apply sutures to anchor the ear until healing occurs to hold the ear in the desired position.

Soft dressings applied to the ears will remain for a few days and most patients experience some mild discomfort, however the risks are minimal.

A white scar will be left behind the ear after healing, but because it falls in the natural crease, any visibility is inconsequential.
