What is Ear Surgery?
Ear surgery, medically referred to as otoplasty, can correct a variety of ear imperfections, including ears that protrude, are oversized, or have been damaged from injury or genetic predisposition. Dr. Danau performs only ear surgery for adults. By carefully reshaping the ears and adjusting their size and position, he can create a beautiful, harmonious head profile.
During the procedure the surgeon makes a small incision in the back of the ear to expose the ear cartilage. The cartilage is then sculpted, and bent back toward the head. Stitches may be used to help maintain the ear’s new shape. Other techniques are used to improve upon the appearance of the ears. Consult with your cosmetic surgeon and ask about the technique they use for ear surgery. Ear surgery results in more natural-looking ears that lie flatter against the head and appear more normal.
