Ear surgery in Dallas helps patients to improve the shape, position, and proportion of the ear. Otoplasty is also performed to modify the ear’s structure or reduce or reposition disproportionately large or prominent ears. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Azouz’s goal for an otoplasty is to create a more natural look with better-positioned ears that complement and balance the patients’ faces.

Ear Surgery Benefits

There are a variety of benefits for cosmetic ear surgery. Otoplasty can create more facial balance, can improve the shape of the ear. Otoplasty can correct cupped, outstanding, folded, protruding, gauged, cauliflower, and enlarged ear deformities. Many patients report that otoplasty improves their self-confidence and this is often true in adults and young children.

How Ear Surgery Is Performed in Dallas?

The extent of the procedure depends on your desired goals and what Dr. Azouz believes is appropriate to achieve your ideal results. Ear Surgery usually takes about one to two hours, although complicated procedures may take longer. Dr. Azouz will create small incisions on the back of the ears, which are concealed in the natural crevices of the ear so that virtually no scar will be visible after the healing period. The ear cartilage can be folded or removed as needed to reshape the ear and bring it closer to the head, improving the appearance of the patient. Otoplasty is also sometimes called ear pinning but no actual pinning back of the ears is performed despite the name.

Anesthesia for Ear Surgery

Dr. Azouz aims for the patient to have the best experience possible. Many patients have varying desires in how awake or how asleep they would like to be during plastic surgery. Dr. Azouz performs otoplasty under local sedation. Some patients desire deep sedation, and others wish for light sedation or no sedation. With local anesthesia and sedation, patients tend to have a quicker recovery as compared to general anesthesia.

Ear Surgery Recovery

After otoplasty, your ears will be covered in bandages for protection and support. It is common to feel some discomfort and itching which are usually well controlled with medications prescribed by Dr. Azouz. Dr. Azouz recommends trying not to rub or place excessive force on the incisions after ear surgery. A few days after otoplasty, Dr. Azouz will remove your bandages. Dr. Azouz will guide the use of headbands that cover, support, and protect the ears.

Combination of an Ear Surgery with Other Plastic Surgeries

Ear surgery in Dallas can be combined with a variety of plastic surgery procedures, including:

Ear surgery can also be performed in combination with breast and body surgery such as liposuction, mini tummy tuck, breast augmentation, or breast lift.

Results are usually immediate and permanent, providing a life-long benefit to the patient’s appearance and self-esteem. Patients often return home shortly after the otoplasty is complete.
