About ear plastic surgery with Dr. Yily De los Santos

This plastic surgery improves the appearance of your ears, either if they are too separated of the head, too large, or any other issue you would like to correct. This procedure is relatively simple, with a brief recovery.

Cosmetic surgery of the ear, or otoplasty, is an aesthetic procedure that alters the size, position, or proportion of the ears. The outcome of ear reshaping surgery varies greatly depending on the changes that are desired, but these procedures generally improve self-confidence, especially in children and teenagers. If the ears stick out, ear pinning surgery can be performed to flatten the ears against the head. If one ear is positioned higher than the other, ear repositioning can create symmetry. Large, oversized ears can be addressed alone or in conjunction with other ear issues.

When to Consider Ear Surgery

  • If you were born with overly large or small ears
  • If your ears are disproportionate to your head or oddly placed
  • If your ears protrude or stick out prominently
  • If you have suffered an injury that has negatively impacted the shape or positioning of your ears
  • If your self-esteem or self-image would improve from such a procedure

Considerations

Pros

  • Ear surgery can improve the shape and proportion of your ears.
  • Ear surgery can provide a boost to your self-confidence and is a low-risk procedure that can be performed on children over the age of five.
  • Results generally last a lifetime with minimal fluctuations.

Cons

  • Young children might have trouble dealing with aftercare and recovery.
  • Ear symmetry may be affected.
  • Permanent scarring or numbness of the ear or face may result.

These are the top three pros and cons to weigh when considering ear surgery. If you want to focus on what is unique to you, please consult with your aesthetic plastic surgeon.
