During your first visit, the ears will be evaluated for shape, any missing components and symmetry. Based on the deformity present, a correction recommendation will be made.

What to Expect

Ear deformity correction, or otoplasty, is generally done under local anesthesia with moderate sedation as an outpatient procedure. Protective dressing is applied for three days after surgery. You may engage in light activity. Return to more normal activity, including work and school, may take one to two weeks depending on the post-operative pain level.
