The Ears You've Always Wanted
What is Otoplasty?
Otoplastyis a surgical procedure that corrects ears that stick out prominently from a person’s head.
Who is this for?
Many children and adults are self-conscious of the prominence of their ears sticking out from their heads.
About the Otoplasty Procedure
An Otoplasty involves just one incision in on the back of each ear. Dr. Berman then thins the cartilage and place sutures in the ear cartilage. Dr. Berman has had excellent results with this technique! This procedure differs from torn earlobe repair as ear lobes are only skin and not cartilage.
What Post-Op care is required for Otoplasty?
After an Otoplasty, no dressings are needed during the day. However, when the patient is sleeping, Dr. Berman recommends that they wear a headband for about 6 weeks after the surgery. I also recommend that patients avoid contact sports until at least 6 weeks after an Otoplasty.
