Otoplasty and Earlobe Repair for Long Island, Westchester, and Manhattan in New York

Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty or ear-correction surgery, can help New York residents or their children who feel self-conscious about protruding, oversized, or misshapen ears. Ear surgery can effectively secure the ears in a less prominent position, with no visible scars, freeing patients to wear their hair, or hats, however they please.

In addition to improving the shape, size, or position of the ear, ear surgery can also correct congenital deformities or abnormalities caused by injury. At Alizadeh Cosmoplastic Surgery, ear surgery also includes earlobe repair, intended for patients who have congenitally enlarged earlobes, or whose earlobes have become stretched by jewelry or trauma.

Otoplasty Details

Ear surgery to shape the ear should take no longer than one to two hours, with the specific duration determined by the procedural specifics. The surgery may include removing cartilage to change the ears' shape or size, as well as bringing the ears closer to the head to make them less visible.

Recovery may include a headband worn to protect the ears and hold them in place as they heal. This may be necessary for up to several weeks.

Earlobe Repair Details

Earlobes that have been stretched by heavy earrings or gages can be repaired with sutures, carefully positioned to restore a natural earlobe shape and make any resulting marks as difficult as possible to notice. This procedure can be accomplished quickly, and requires minimal recovery time. Some patients may be able to have a quick injectable procedure that takes two minutes, which fills in the hole and tightens it.

People seeking earlobe repair may also be looking to fix the result of a piercing that was positioned incorrectly, leading to a tear. In some cases, a person’s earring is pulled through the tissue of the lobe itself due to catching on something or being pulled on by a child.
