OTOPLASTY

OTOPLASTY

Ears are as unique to a person as their fingerprints. They are a defining feature of a person’s look and have a significant impact on overall appearance. Disfigured, protruding and disproportionate ears can become the main focus point on a person’s appearance, leaving them feeling self-conscious. Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery works to correct these issues and achieve a natural, symmetrical balance of the ears. Otoplasty is designed to fix misshapen and deformed ears to balance a person’s overall look, and can greatly increase a person’s self-esteem.

Cosmetic Ear Surgery Beverly Hills

What is otoplasty?

Cosmetic ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, is a procedure that corrects and enhances the ear’s appearance. The procedure improves the shape, proportion and position of the ear to have a profound impact on overall appearance. It’s used to correct misshapen and protruding ears, as well as birth defects and disfigurations caused by injury. Otoplasty by Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery will leave you with symmetrical and natural shaped ears that will greatly improve your facial appearance.

Why choose otoplasty?

Otoplasty is ideal for those who are unhappy with their protruding, deformed or overly large ears. You may choose this procedure if you feel self-conscious of disproportional and overly noticeable ears and you want to improve your overall appearance. Cosmetic ear surgery is for people suffering birth defects, deformed and misshapen ears, and for those who would simply like to gain self-confidence by correcting the appearance of their ears.

Who are good candidates for otoplasty?

Otoplasty candidates are typically over the age of five, free of life-threatening illness and looking for a positive change in their appearance. Candidates should also be in good physical health. People suffering ear defects from birth or injury, overly prominent or misshapen ears also choose to have cosmetic ear surgery. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Vishal Kapoor or Dr. Robert Schlenker to discuss your medical history and to find out if you are a good candidate for otoplasty.

How to prepare for an otoplasty?

Your doctor may inform you of medicinal adjustments you need to make prior to the procedure. This may include starting certain medications, adjusting or stopping current drugs or supplements. This includes avoiding aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS) and vitamins that may increase bleeding. You are also advised to stop smoking at least six weeks before surgery to promote the healing process. Proper hydration is also encouraged before any cosmetic surgery procedure.

What to expect during otoplasty procedure?

Otoplasty is performed with general or local anesthesia while the patient is sedated. Incisions are typically made on the back side of the ear. However, incisions may be made on front folds of the ear as well, which hides any possible scarring. Excess skin and cartilage may be removed during the procedure, which generally lasts two hours. External and internal sutures are carefully placed to promote a natural healing process.

What to expect after otoplasty?

After surgery, the ears will be dressed in bandaging to protect and support the procedure. You’ll need to sleep with your head elevated the first night after surgery and wear a headband over the ears for at least two weeks post-op. You may experience itching and discomfort, which pain medications may be prescribed to treat. It’s recommended to avoid putting pressure on the ears by not sleeping on your side during the healing process. It’s important to take care while dressing, and wearing loose-fitting or button tops is recommended to avoid irritating the sutures.

Day After Surgery

You will be required to wear a compression bandage for at least 24 hours following the otoplasty procedure, and lighter bandaging may be required after the first day of recovery. To minimize swelling, you should keep your head elevated while sleeping after the surgery. You’ll be able to go back to work within a few days of surgery, but heavy lifting is off limits.

Dr. Kapoor was amazing!! I did my research for years before I chose a doctor. I chose him because I felt that he genuinely cared about what I was doing and wasn't trying to sell me on procedures. He gave me great advice about my procedure and made me feel comfortable. I'd recommend him to everyone.

I search for a plastic surgeon for about 5 years. Dr Kapoor was the answer to my prayers! He was really kind, informative and patient, allowing me to ask questions in order to feel more comfortable about my procedure.
