Otoplasty

Otoplasty, also known as ear tuck or ear pinning,  is a cosmetic procedure to change the shape, position, or size of the ears. You might consider otoplasty if your ears are too large, extend too far from your head, or are somehow misshapen due to injury or birth defect. Patients respond well to ear tuck surgery as long as their ears are fully formed. Normally, otoplasty is almost always performed on both ears, even if only one is considered undesirable by the patient, to keep the face symmetrical. This procedure does not affect the position of the ear, or the ability to hear, it is purely aesthetic.

Cheat sheet

Preparing for Otoplasty or Ear Tuck

When preparing for otoplasty, be prepared to answer questions about your medical history, undergo a physical examination, and discuss your specific expectations and desires with the plastic surgeon. Your doctor may ask you to stop smoking before the surgery, avoid certain medications such as aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs, and arrange for help during recovery from otoplasty.

Risks Associated with Otoplasty or Ear Tuck

While most ear tuck surgery procedures are performed easily with little or no complications, there are some risks involved with otoplasty. As with any surgery, some scarring will occur. Fortunately, with otoplasty, this scarring is usually hidden either behind your ear or within your ear’s inner creases. Sometimes the healing process causes the ears to remain asymmetrical, and sometimes ear tuck surgery may not completely correct ear asymmetry. At times the procedure can leave the skin surrounding the ear oversensitive or causing other skin sensation problems. In most cases, this ends soon after the surgery, only in very rare cases is oversensitive skin permanent

Otoplasty or Ear Tuck Procedure

The procedure will take about two hours, and during the recovery, you will have to wear bandages for a few days. After the bandages are removed, you will have to avoid sleeping on your side until the swelling, itching, and discoloration goes down. If your ears are not what you desire, consider ear tuck or otoplasty and regain that confidence you have been missing.

Frequently
Asked Questions

I feel like my whole face is uneven. Could an otoplasty really help?

Without seeing you in person or at least a photo, it is impossible to say what is throwing off your facial harmony. But in general, yes, you’d be surprised how much your ears actually affect the look of your face as a whole. In the right patient, ear tuck surgery can be a really simple way to restore proper proportion. I would suggest that you schedule an in-person consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area who performs a lot of ear tuck surgeries. It’s such a safe and quick procedure - definitely worth getting checked out.

I had an otoplasty before, but it looks like I need another one. Is this possible?

Yes. Unfortunately. The biggest complication of otoplasty is that the cartilage of the ears likes to go back to its old position. I use permanent sutures and shave the front part of your ear cartilage to weaken it. These moves give me a really high success rate.

My ears still look funny and it’s been two weeks. What’s up?

Swelling. It’s the body’s natural response to any kind of trauma. And surgery is traumatic. I know it’s frustrating, but you have to practice a bit of patience. It may take anywhere from 3-6 months for the swelling to fully subside. But most of it should be gone by 8 weeks. We will see you multiple times after surgery so we are there to guide you throughout your healing process.

Is ear tuck surgery safe?

 I don’t want to damage my hearing. An otoplasty is a purely aesthetic procedure. It is beyond safe. I don’t go anywhere near the internal parts of the ear so there is no risk of jeopardizing your hearing. I am not even actually changing the position of your ears — just how close they are to the side of your head.
