A New Profile Pic

What is Otoplasty?

An otoplasty procedure can improve the shape, position, and proportion of your ears. Our clients choose this treatment for cosmetic reasons to improve the look of the ears and the profile of the face, to correct birth defects, and also to correct misshapen ears caused by injury. Otoplasty can be performed on children over five years old as well as on adults.

Dr. Asher will work with you to customize the Otoplasty procedure to your unique needs and desired results.

Otoplasty Recovery and Aftercare

Your plastic surgeon will go over all recovery and aftercare instructions with you during your consultation and before your procedure, and you will be given specific instructions for how to take care of your ears after surgery to heal properly, avoid infection, and achieve optimal results. Make sure to follow these instructions carefully and attend any scheduled post-operative visits.

Frequently Asked Questions

Many of our clients seeking to correct large ears have conchal hypertrophy. This means there is excess cartilage in the ears that make them larger. During Otoplasty, your plastic surgeon can shape and minimize the cartilage in your ears, making them smaller. They can also adjust tissues to draw the ears in towards the sides of the face, reducing their prominence.

Any pain that clients experience as a result of this procedure can be well-controlled with pain medication. Most of our Dothan Otoplasty clients use pain medications for one to two days following the procedure.

The results of otoplasty are permanent and long-lasting. However, it is very important to follow the instructions your plastic surgeon provides for aftercare. If the ears are not properly cared for after surgery or if they are re-traumatized, there is a possibility that your results could be minimized.
