RG Otoplasty

Your aesthetic goals are possible. Your ears can be re-shaped, and your confidence can be restored. Ear surgery improves symmetry and brings the ears into proportion and balance with the rest of your facial features. If you’re bothered by the size and shape of your ears or feel they protrude too much, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia can help. You don’t have to be embarrassed by the look of your ears any longer. 

What is Ear Surgery?

Also commonly referred to as “otoplasty”, ear surgery is a common aesthetic procedure that can be customized to correct ears that are:

•    Overly large
•    Misshapen
•    Asymmetrical
•    Protruding outward from the head
•    Damaged due to trauma or injury
•    Have damaged ear lobes

Ear Lobe Repair

In addition to correcting the size and shape of the ears, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia also performs ear lobe repair to address ripped or elongated ear lobes.

This can occur due to wearing heavy earrings, ear gauges, or may be the result of years of micro-tears to earring piercings. No matter why you may be seeking ear lobe repair, Dr. Ramirez Gavidia can achieve rejuvenated ear lobes for you in a simple in-office procedure.  

Holistic Rejuvenation: Considering You as a Whole

Dr. Ramirez Gavidia never delivers just one procedure. Instead, he considers you holistically — that is, he evaluates what needs to be put into balance to ensure a comprehensive result. At RG Plastic Surgery, we are all about comprehensive and holistic rejuvenation. Combining procedures to get an optimal outcome is what we do best.

How is Ear Surgery Performed?

The extent of your otoplasty procedure will largely depend on the type of correction you are having performed. General anesthesia will be used to make you comfortably asleep during your surgery, and Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will manipulate the cartilage and tissues of your ears to create an improved shape, structure, and overall appearance.

In cases where the ears are protruding, permanent sutures will be placed within the ear to pin them closer to the head.

Incisions are typically placed carefully within the natural folds and creases of the ears for minimal visible scarring, with any scarring fading over time.

What is Recovery Like after Ear Surgery?

Healing and discomfort are minimal following this straightforward procedure, but bandages may be placed to protect the new contours of your ears as they heal. Any post-surgical discomfort that is experienced is generally well-controlled through prescription medication and the aftercare instructions provided to you by Dr. Ramirez Gavidia.

What Results Can I Expect?

Once all post-surgical swelling and bruising has subsided, most patients are able to immediately enjoy the new shape, size, and structure of their ears. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will schedule follow-up appointments with you to monitor your healing and ensure that you are completely satisfied with your results.
