Dr. Yousefi offers otoplasty for patients in Washington, DC, Vienna, Arlington, and surrounding areas of Northern Virginia.
Ear surgery, or otoplasty, can help people who are born with prominent ears feel more confident and increase their self-esteem.
Often, a condition such as protruding ears can result from underdeveloped ear cartilage but can be remedied with treatments such as ear pinning.
How Is Ear Surgery Performed?
Otoplasty is a fairly quick and easy procedure, lasting about one to two hours. An incision, about 1.5 inches in length, is made in the crease behind the ear where the cartilage is exposed. The fold in the ears is re-created, if needed, and the cartilage is secured to the back of the head. Precise measurements are taken, so both ears protrude from the side of the head approximately 12-15 mm after the surgery. Excess skin is also removed from the back of the ear to keep the ears back.
What Can I Expect After Otoplasty?
Both permanent and dissolvable sutures are used to help maintain the new shape of the ear. External stitches will typically dissolve, and the dressings are not needed anymore after about a week. Most patients are not bothered by pain at all and can return to work in about five days.
