About Ear Surgery
An ear surgery, or otoplasty, performed at The Face & Body Center in Flowood, MS can help repair deformed, misshapen, or protruding ears. Cosmetic issues of the ears can appear at birth or be a result of a traumatic incident. They can also cause insecurities, resulting in bullying for children, and can detract from your overall appearance. By performing an otoplasty, our surgeons can reshape, pin back, and trim the skin and cartilage around the ears to correct their appearance, restore your confidence, and give you a natural look. This procedure can be performed for patients of all ages, including children as young as five or six years of age. If you or your loved one is suffering from an ear deformity, then we invite you to call our practice today for a consultation.

What to Expect
Otoplasty is an outpatient procedure that normally requires only local anesthesia. Small incisions will be made around the ears to allow your surgeon better access to the cartilage. Cartilage can then be manipulated by removing, reshaping, and reforming to repair the ears for an improved, symmetrical look. Excess skin from the ear can also be removed if needed. Ear surgery is commonly used to pin back protruding ears, repair earlobes, reshape, and resize to provide natural-looking results. The length of the surgery depends on the technique and the condition of your ears.
Following ear surgery, the ears will be dressed to provide protection. The dressing will remain in place for around five days for children and two days for adults. There’s little pain or discomfort associated with otoplasty, but you should expect to experience tenderness and swelling. It’s crucial that pediatric patients not touch or bother their ears while they are healing. Results are long standing and should provide years of positive benefits for patients.
