Improving Ear Appearance and Form with Otoplasty

Adults and children over five have access to Otoplasty or ear surgery. Otoplasty, whether for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes, is a surgical procedure that can alter the size and form of the ears and their position.

However, surgical procedures on the ears do not improve hearing. Enhancing the visual appeal of ears is the primary goal. Dr. Asaf Yalif of Y Plastic Surgery in Atlanta is a triple-board-certified plastic surgeon who focuses on work on the face and neck. Set an appointment to talk to Dr. Yalif and find out if Otoplasty is the correct choice.

What can Otoplasty do?

Otoplasty is performed to lessen the prominence of the ears. However, some people get ear surgery to alter the appearance of their earlobes, achieve better symmetry, repair damage after an injury, or fix a birth defect.

Ideal Candidates

Ear reconstruction surgery can help those who have ears that are disproportionate, misaligned, misshapen, or protruding. The procedure is appropriate for adults and children as young as five or six years old who wish to correct any abnormalities. Dr. Yalif can perform the most suitable type of Otoplasty among the various options available if you are self-conscious about the appearance of your ears and want a permanent solution with a natural look.

What To Expect

Otoplasty Preparation and Procedure

During Otoplasty, the patient will be under either general anesthesia or a lighter sedation known as “twilight” anesthesia, and an incision will be made in the folds of the ear.

Dr. Yalif will be able to manipulate the cartilage and skin, reshaping the ear. For overly large ears, the extraneous cartilage and skin can be removed. If the ears are misaligned, he will stitch the ears evenly and in the most appropriate position. After surgery, the incisions will be sutured closed. Since the incisions are made in the natural creases of the ear, there will be no visible scarring. The surgery typically takes around two hours to complete.

Dr. Y’s Skincare

Thinking about cosmetic surgery? Dr. Yalif has some tips to make sure you get the most out of your procedure. He knows that taking care of your skin before and after surgery can make a big difference in how you look and feel. So, here's what he recommends to help you maintain those results, smooth out scars, and achieve that aesthetic you're aiming for!

Skincare for Facial Plastic Surgery

Before the big day, Dr. Y suggests using a retinoid from the Environ line. These products pack a punch without leaving your skin feeling dry or irritated. Once you've gone under the knife, it's all about giving your skin the TLC it deserves. Dr. Yalif recommends a combo of Environ's Skin Essentia line for cleansing and moisturizing, followed by their Vita-peptide C-quence serum 2. Packed with vitamins A, C, and E, this serum helps your skin heal and stay looking youthful. Top it off with a super moisturizer at night and some SPF during the day to keep your skin glowing for years to come.

Skincare for Eye Procedures

Whether you've had an eye procedure or just want to banish those under-eye bags, Dr. Y suggests trying out Environ's Vita-peptide gel. It's like a magic potion for puffiness, fine lines, and crow's feet. And if you're having any work done around your eyes, this gel will help enhance those results, too!

Skincare for Body Contouring Procedures

And let's not forget about your body! Alongside the recommendations for your face, Dr. Yalif highly recommends using Derma-Lac lotion after body contouring procedures. This product helps exfoliate your skin and keep it feeling soft and moisturized. Plus, adding some vitamin A, C, and E body oil into the mix can help tackle stretch marks, scars, and dry skin.

Otoplasty Recovery, Results, and Aftercare

After having ear surgery, the ears will be covered with a dressing to protect them. It is recommended that the dressing be kept in place for approximately one week. Although Otoplasty usually causes little pain or discomfort, patients may experience some tenderness and swelling. It is crucial that pediatric patients avoid touching or bothering their ears while they are healing. The bandages should be kept on for a whole week. The swelling after Otoplasty typically subsides within a week or two, and the final result should become more apparent shortly after that. Although a full recovery may take up to three months, most patients notice significant improvement within the first six weeks.

Maintaining your Otoplasty Results

Results are long-term and will provide years of positive benefits for patients.
