Men and women who feel self-conscious about the appearance of their ears may want to take the time to learn about cosmetic surgery solutions available with their local team of professionals. Show Low, AZ area patients will often find that the team at Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery can assist with ear surgeries known as “otoplasty.”
What is otoplasty?
The otoplasty procedure refers to any cosmetic ear surgery that is performed to improve the appearance, structure, or overall anatomy of the ears. This may include ear pinning, used to bring ears closer to the head where they may otherwise stick out and appear prominent. Otoplasty procedures range in technique depending on the issue being addressed. Some of the more common otoplasty procedures address the following concerns:
- Prominent helix
- Prominent bowl
- Stretched/aged earlobes
- Cauliflower/wrestler’s ear
- Prominent ears in babies and toddlers
During an initial consultation appointment with the team at Olack Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, our team members will assess a patient’s current situation and listen to their concerns. Then, with the information provided by the patient and a thorough evaluation of the ears, our providers can make recommendations as to the best surgical options for an individual. The evaluation appointment is critical to determining the procedure performed to achieve the results patients desire.
Who is a candidate for otoplasty?
The consultation visit with the patient is the point at which our specialists will determine if a patient is a good fit for this or other cosmetic surgery procedures to help restore balance, harmony, and improved appearance to the face and body. Otoplasty may be combined with other facial procedures depending on the patient’s needs.
