Types of Ear Surgery Procedures

Ear surgery is performed in order to set prominent ears back and closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. It can also repair earlobes that have been torn or stretched due to a piercing.

Along with protruding ears, many other ear problems can be helped with ear surgery, including “lop ear,” which is when the tip of the ear seems to fold down and forward; “cupped ear,” which is usually a very small and folded ear; and “shell ear,” which is when the curve in the outer rim and natural folds and creases are missing.

For patients who have earlobes that have been damaged by a torn or stretched piercing, we provide earlobe repair surgery. This is a relatively simple procedure that involves removing the skin that has grown over the split, and suturing the earlobe back together. In most cases, the earlobe can even be re-pierced, provided that it is given an appropriate amount of time to heal and the piercing is not done in a place that has been weakened by the previous damage.

Good Candidates for Ear Surgery

Ear surgery at our practice is usually performed on children between the ages of four and fourteen. A person’s ears are almost fully grown by about age four, so the surgery does not interfere with normal growth. Also, the sooner the surgery is performed, the less ridicule and teasing the child will have to endure. Ear surgery is possible at any age, so we welcome adult patients as well.

Ear Surgery Safety

Most people who undergo ear surgery do not experience any major complications. Dr. Ghaderi will provide you with a full description of the procedure when you come in for an ear surgery consultation at his office.

Ear Surgery Results

Most patients, young and old alike, are extremely happy with the results of ear surgery. The procedure can give you a more natural appearance and help you feel confident about the way you look. Adult patients may wish to combine ear surgery with other facial plastic surgery procedures or non-surgical treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic for enhanced results.
