What is Ear Surgery?
Ear surgery or otoplasty is performed to reshape or reposition the ears, giving you the confidence to show your face from every angle. Patients who might benefit from otoplasty have ears that are large, abnormally shaped, or protrude outward. This elective cosmetic procedure can be performed on children as young as six years old. Dr. Reo Pugao generously offers patients of El Paso, TX free facial surgery consultations to make informed decisions about otoplasty and other elective surgeries. If you or your child are concerned about ear shape or protrusion, contact our dedicated staff at SkinSational MedSpa to book your free consultation.
How is ear surgery performed?
Ideal candidates for ear surgery have some form of visible abnormality on their ears, are at least six years of age, are in good general health, and have realistic expectations about what the surgery can accomplish. Dr. Reo Pugao can help patients understand what the procedure will be like, what results can be reasonably expected, and what the healing process following the procedure will look like. Otoplasty is typically performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. During otoplasty, ear cartilage is usually reshaped or removed to achieve a more balanced look with the rest of the face, and the cartilage is secured with sutures closer to the head. Incisions are made in the natural folds of the ear where they will be less noticeable once the skin has healed. The surgery takes about two hours to complete, and younger patients will need to be monitored to ensure they do not touch their ears while they are healing.
