OTOPLASTY

In cases of protruding or over-developed ears, the procedure of otoplasty may be an option. Otoplasty is commonly referred to as “pinning back” of the ears. It is available for children once their ears have stopped developing around the age of six. Over-developed ears can be the cause of psychological stress and trauma and should be treated at a young age before it becomes a serious issue.Oral & Facial Surgery Center surgeons are trained in several surgical procedures that eliminate the majority of the problems related to protruding ears.

Procedure Snapshot

The procedure can be performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia and your doctor will discuss this option with you.  Your doctor has the option of either folding the cartilage located on the back of the ear or removing excess cartilage. Sutures are placed and bandages applied to speed the healing process. The procedure typically takes only a few hours.

Providing You With Modern Cosmetic Surgery Options

According to the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS), cosmetic surgery brings potentially limitless possibilities. Each year, new treatments and procedures are introduced as more people discover and consider the benefits that it can have on their personal lives. Safer and more effective treatments have led to the dramatic growth in facial cosmetic surgery, and non-invasive procedures have fueled it even more.

Too many people live with insecurities and a lack of confidence in themselves because of something they dislike about their appearance. Undergoing cosmetic surgery for the right reasons can be life-changing, and having it done by a professional clinic like Arkansas Oral & Facial Surgery means getting the best results.

Before Otoplasty Surgery

To better understand your overall health, we will evaluate your medical history prior to surgery. In addition, a complete examination of your ears is made in order to take the most effective surgical approach. All issues such as shape and types of anesthesia used will be discussed.

We will provide you with preoperative instructions that may include the elimination of specific drugs containing aspirin several weeks before surgery to minimize excess bleeding. Antibiotics may also be prescribed to prevent infection.

The areas that will be excised are marked and digital photographs are taken in order to document the amount of improvement after surgery.
