If you are feeling self-conscious about your ears, for whatever reason, then ear surgery may be the answer for you. Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, is a surgical procedure used to move the ears closer to the head, reshape the ears, or reduce the ears in size. Ear surgery is a permanent procedure that can be performed on both children and adults. The best age for children is over the age of 5 after their ears are fully developed. Ear surgery will create a more natural shape while bringing proportion and balance to the face. Dr. Maurice Khosh is an expert in ear surgeon and has performed many types of ear surgeries.
Types of Ear Surgeries
Ear Pinning Surgery: This is a surgery to change the appearance and reshape the ears. This surgery will correct ears that are protruding from the head, oversized or are misshapen. An incision will be made in the back of the ear and place stitches and adjusts them to bend the cartilage.
Torn Earlobe Repair: This surgery is performed to correct and repair earlobes that were torn due to trauma or piercings. This is an outpatient procedure done with local anesthesia by placing stitches to the damaged area.
Keloid Scar Repair: Some procedures are performed to remove keloid scars on the ear depending on the size and severity. A keloid is the overgrowth of scar tissue caused by trauma or piercings and could become disfiguring or create functional problems if left untreated.
Cauliflower Ear Repair: Just like keloid scars, cauliflower ear repair can be done by different procedures depending on how severe the trauma was to the ear. Although cauliflower ear is permanent, the appearance may be reversed by corrective ear surgery.
