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 the recovery like after Ear Surgery?

Healing and discomfort are minimal following this straightforward procedure, but bandages may be placed to protected 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.
