Plan Your Procedure
Cosmetic ear surgery is completed using a form of anesthesia. In most cases, the incision is made near the back of the ear or inside the inner ear folds. During surgery, cartilage may be removed or added to create a more natural appearance. It is usual for both ears to be altered during the surgical procedure to ensure they look and appear balanced. Once the ears are surgically corrected, the incisions are closed with sutures and are bandaged so they can remain safeguarded for healing.
What to Expect
Once treatment has finished and it is safe to leave the outpatient surgery center, you will rest and recover at home. Dr. Yonick or a member of his team will give recovery instructions. It is important for you or your child not to rub, touch, or scratch the ears. Furthermore, you or your child should avoid laying on the ears, instead sleeping in an upright position for the first several days. Dr. Yonick will ask to see his ear surgery patients back within the first week — during this time, he will remove the bandages and observe you or your child's ears. Natural-looking ears are noticeable almost immediately and the results will continue to improve as the ears heal.
Reshape Your Ears
Although the ears are small, an abnormal position, shape, or size can make a huge difference to you or your child. Ear surgery (otoplasty) can help your child avoid teasing at school or help you if you feel uncomfortable about your ears.
