What is an Ear Setback?
Sometimes a defect in the ears is apparent after birth or as a child develops, causing the ears to appear misshapen or more pronounced.
Ear setback, or otoplasty, creates symmetry and proportion to the ears. Our skilled surgeons can perform ear surgery to correct various issues in the ears, including the size, shape, or position of the ears. Incisions are typically created on the back or folds of the ears, making them easily hidden.
Our highly skilled plastic surgeons will design a personalized plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. You will enjoy enhanced self-confidence and beautiful, natural results. Let us help you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside!
What are the Benefits?
After your ear setback procedure, you will experience:
- Better proportion and symmetry
- Improved self-confidence
- Long-lasting results
- Well-hidden scars
- Beautiful, natural results
Who is the Ideal Candidate?
Patients with asymmetrical, misshapen, or overly protruding ears are usually candidates for ear surgery. Ideal candidates are at a healthy weight, do not have major medical issues, and do not smoke. It is also important for candidates to have realistic expectations for their results.
What Can I Expect from Recovery?
After ear setback surgery, you can expect tenderness and swelling. Pain medication will be provided to ease discomfort. The ears will be carefully bandaged, with bandages required to stay in place to promote healing. Your surgeon will keep track of your progress with postoperative appointments to ensure proper healing.
