What is Otoplasty?

Otoplasty is a cosmetic ear procedure that can adjust the ears’ size, positioning, or shape. Plastic surgeons do Otoplasty to treat a physical or structural abnormality or help pin protruding ears back. At Skin Works, our surgeons perform on the auricle, the visible portion of your outer ear, to create natural-looking results.


The auricle is made up of different folds of cartilage that are covered in skin. So naturally, auricle development starts in the womb and continues in the first few years of life. However, some individuals do not enjoy the current shape of their ears, and that’s when Otoplasty comes into the picture. Otoplasty is a standard method for addressing developmental issues with your auricle. It’s safe, effective, and quite affordable.


Ear Development & Otoplasty

Did you know that the ears are one of the first parts of the body to reach their full mature size? That is why some children have drastically more oversized ears compared to other parts of their faces at a young age. Many people’s ears reach their full size by age 5 or 6. If you have slightly more prominent protruding ears by this point, it is no wonder they would look disproportionate or misshapen.


This can lead to a negative self-image and bleed into adulthood if not treated. Otoplasty allows you to correct this issue and have regular proportionate ears to the rest of your face. Contact our offices to set up a consultation and learn more about this procedure!


Different Types of Skin Works Otoplasty


1- Skin Works Ear Augmentation

Sometimes, you may have ears that are too small and haven’t completely developed. You can use Otoplasty to increase the size of the outer ear to make them more proportionate to the rest of your head.


2- Skin Works Ear Pinning

Ear pinning is the most common type of otoplasty procedure. It involves drawing protruding ears close to your head. It is usually performed on people whose ears stick out from their heads in a prominent fashion.


3- Skin Works Ear Reduction

You can also use Otoplasty to reduce the size of abnormally large ears, otherwise known as macrotia.


What Makes a Good Candidate for Otoplasty

Otoplasty is mainly used by those with ears that are too small, too large, protrude from the head, or have an abnormal structural issue from injury, trauma, or birth. People can also have multiple otoplasty procedures if they are unhappy with the first one. At Skin Works, our expert medical staff gets the job done right the first time. Then, we can correct any faulty work done in a previous otoplasty procedure and get you the desired results.


Regarding ideal patients, Otoplasty is best performed in people at least ages 5 or older. As previously mentioned, this is when the auricle has reached at least 90% of its adult size. It is also recommended that you be in overall good health, as underlying medical conditions can risk complications or affect the healing process. For example, while this procedure can be performed on smokers, smoking can decrease blood flow to your ears. This will slow down the healing process.


Benefits of Skin Works Otoplasty


There are multiple benefits to an otoplasty procedure. These include correction of overly large or small ears, correction of over-protruding ears, correction of previous otoplasty work that didn’t produce the desired results, correction of physical or structural abnormalities in the ear from injury or trauma (i.e., cauliflower ears), and ear lobe repair from piercings and gauges.


Most importantly, Otoplasty gives patients confidence and a more positive self-image, knowing their ear issues have been corrected. For many, this procedure can be life-changing and lead to an array of benefits in life, from having more confidence in their appearance.


Are There Any Side Effects with Otoplasty?


The most common side effects during recovery include tenderness, itchiness, redness, swelling, bruising, numbness, or tingling. The post-operation dressing should remain in place for about a week. After that, you will need to wear a unique elastic headband for 4-6 weeks. Our staff will tell you when it is safe to stop wearing the headband and resume normal day-to-day activities.

How Does Skin Works Otoplasty Procedure Work?



Step One: Skin Works Otoplasty Consultation

The first step is to contact our office to book a consultation. You can select a day and time on our online calendar. When you visit us, one of our specialists will analyze your ear and provide available options. They can also answer any cost, recovery time, and financing questions.


Step Two: Skin Works Otoplasty Surgery

Otoplasty is typically an outpatient procedure and takes anywhere between 1-and 3 hours. Unless your surgeon decided otherwise, you would be given local anesthesia for the course. The length and complexity of the system depend on the type of correction your surgeon aims for. Your surgeon will review this information with you during your consultation to know what to expect on the day of surgery.


Step Three: Recovery

You will have a dressing placed over your ears. Our staff will review the proper post-treatment plan with you so you know how to take care of your ear once you return home. As a general caution, avoid touching or scratching your ears, avoid sleeping in a position that can lead to irritation, and avoid irritating your dressing when removing clothing. A full recovery can take between 3 to 6 weeks.
