Cosmetic Ear Surgery

What is Ear Surgery (Octoplasty)?

Otoplasty, or sometimes described as “pinning back” the ears, is designed to change the ear shape and contour. It may be performed on anyone over the age of six years old – when ear growth is almost complete. For children with severely protruding ears, it is recommended surgery be performed at an early age before they are subjected to psychological stress related to the condition.

Before cosmetic ear surgery, a medical history will be taken and a physical examination conducted. The physician and patient or, in the case of a minor, a family member, will discuss how the ears should look and what can realistically be expected. The type of anesthesia to be used, the procedure, and possible risks and complications are also discussed.

Cosmetic Ear Surgery - What To Expect
Otoplasty is performed in our on-site surgery facility. It can be done under general/MAC anesthesia with the patient asleep or under local anesthesia in which the area is numbed, and the patient remains awake. Premedication may be administered to relax the patient. Preoperative instructions may include the elimination of certain aspirin-containing drugs for several weeks before the procedure to minimize the possibility of excess bleeding.
 
Ear surgery can take up to two hours or more, depending upon the extent of surgery. There are several cosmetic ear surgery procedures that can be used, which are designed to bring the ears closer to the head. Dr. Marvel may either fold down the cartilage and use sutures to keep the folds together or remove excess cartilage. After reshaping the cartilage, the incisions are closed with small sutures and the ears are covered with bandages.
 
Pain connected with cosmetic ear surgery is minimal to moderate and controlled with oral medication. Bandages are removed within a few days but may be replaced with a lighter head dressing. Bruising around the area occurs but fades within a few weeks. Some temporary swelling occurs, but the condition can be alleviated by keeping the head elevated when reclining. Although patients are usually up and around one or two days after surgery, the decision as to when normal activities can be resumed is determined by Dr. Marvel and is based on the extent of surgery and the patient’s healing process. Each year thousands of otoplasty procedures are successfully performed. Occasionally, a second procedure is necessary if an ear begins to protrude again.

Can't say enough about Dr. Marvel and his amazing staff. He has done several procedures on me, and they are perfection. I have not had to take any pain pills, I didn't even bruise with my procedures. He is also extremely honest, if he doesn't think you need something done he will tell you that, which is unheard of these days. I highly recommend him
