Am I a candidate for otoplasty?
Candidates for surgery usually have them for cosmetic purposes, like correcting the size of ears, or placing them closer to the head. We recommend you to contact any of the certified specialists for an evaluation to determine if you are a candidate for surgery.
Is this procedure painful?
During the procedure, you won’t feel any pain. After surgery, you will be asked to cover your ears while sleeping to prevent them from being hurt.
How long will recovery take?
Recovery is short and mild, most patients can return to work after 7 days, but swelling will continue for 6 weeks. If you need to have your stiches removed, your doctor will make an appointment when it’s necessary.
For how long will the results last?
Results are generally permanent, however, some patients may be unsatisfied with the results and may ask for a second procedure.
