Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

Ear Surgery in Atlanta Georgia offered by a board certified plastic surgeon. Information about Ear surgery, Otoplasty procedures and more.

Ear surgery in Atlanta is performed on both adults and children to improve the appearance of the ears. Prominent ears, abnormally shaped ears that are too small can have a profoundly negative effect on self-confidence. Children who endure teasing can benefit the most from this procedure.

Ototplasty is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. Ears are almost fully grown by age four, so the operation is done on children between ages of four and fourteen. Ear surgery is also possible in adults with fewer risks. You have to be clear about what and how you want your ear to be when you talk to the doctor.

The ear surgery (or Ototplasty) procedure usually takes two or three hours, the technique depends on the problem. In one of the more common techniques, Dr. Davoudi makes a small incision in the back of the ear to expose the ear cartilage. Then Dr. Davoudi will sculpt the cartilage and bend it back towards the head. The stitches which are non removable may be used to help maintain the new shape. Some times a large piece of the cartilage is removed to give a more natural looking fold, when the ear surgery procedure is complete. In another technique, a similar incision is made in the back of the ear. Skin is removed and stitches are used to fold the cartilage back on itself to reshape the ear without removing cartilage. The surgery will leave a faint scar in the back of the ear, which will fade with time.

The patient is usually up and around within a few hours of surgery. If you prefer you may stay overnight in the hospital until all the effects of general anesthesia wear off. To promote best molding and healing, the patients head is wrapped in a bulky bondage. The pain in the ear can be relived by medication. Within a few days the bulky bandage will be replaced by a lighter dressing similar to a headband. The dressing should be worn day and night stitches will be removed or will dissolve in about a week. For about a month, avoid any activity which will make your ear bend. Adults can go back to work in five days. Children can go back to school after a week. Most patients are satisfied with the results of ear surgery Atlanta. Be realistic in your goals and don’t expect a perfectly symmetric result in both ears. The goal of ear surgery in Atlanta, GA is improvement not perfection.
