Boulder Plastic Surgery Provides Ear Reshaping Procedures
Your ears are one of the most noticeable features primarily because they are so important in defining facial symmetry. Whether your ears point up, hang low, or are protruding, any abnormalities can make a person unhappy with how they are first perceived. At Boulder Plastic Surgery, we can perform an ear reshaping procedure known as otoplasty to restore a more balanced look. There are several ways your ears can be reshaped, and with new medical advancements the desired results can be easily attained. Our board-certified surgeons at Boulder Plastic Surgery can review your options with you to decide how to best achieve your desired results.
Otoplasty is a Safe and Effective Option for Reshaping the Ears
During your consultation we will carefully discuss your expectations and decide on the right procedure for you. Ear reshaping surgery may several hours depending on the complexity of the procedure. We will make a small incision behind your ear where the cartilage may be cut out or folded and stitched, depending on the structure of your ear and your desired outcome. A local anesthesia will given before the incision is made.
Most otoplasties are performed in the office, and you are able to go home the same day. You will have a bandage applied to your head that will need to be worn for at least three days, or until otherwise instructed by your surgeon. We will give you detailed post-surgery guidelines and a home recovery regimen that needs to be followed diligently for a proper and thorough recovery. After a few days, you will return to our office to have the bandage removed and will have another type of dressing applied to your head that will need to be kept on for up to three weeks. We will discuss in depth all possible risks, aspects of the procedure, and what to expect during recovery before your surgery is performed.
