We’re All Ears
Do you find yourself feeling self-conscious about the way your ears look? Do you wish for a better profile where the look of your ears is minimized? Otoplasty, or ear reshaping surgery, can help improve your profile and help you not feel self-conscience about your ears. Dr. Asher will listen to your wants and needs, perform a thorough physical examination, and work with you to achieve your goals for looking your best. Whether you have chosen otoplasty for cosmetic purposes or to correct a birth defect, the Southern Institute of Plastic Surgery experts in Dothan, Alabama, can help.
A New Profile Pic
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.
You will love your new facial profile after an otoplasty procedure. During the procedure, Dr. Asher gently reshapes the ears, improving the proportions and the balance of your ears and face. If you struggle with ears that are too large or if you are bothered by ears that protrude out too far from your face, otoplasty will give you the confidence you need to take on your day.
Listening to your needs
We take the time to understand your individual goals for the size, shape, or protrusion of your ears. We collaborate with you to create an otoplasty procedure that meets your exact requirements and delivers results that enhance your natural beauty and confidence. We believe that you deserve personalized care and attention. We strive to provide the highest level of care to ensure that you feel comfortable, confident, and satisfied with your results.
What to Expect During Otoplasty
Once you have been administered general anesthesia, Dr. Asher will make small, strategically placed incisions either on the back of the ear or in the natural folds of the ear in order to reshape, resize, and reposition the ear as needed. Dr. Asher will work with you to customize the otoplasty procedure to your unique needs and desired results.
Focus on Your Best Features
With otoplasty, you will see immediate results. When the swelling has receded after a few days, and the dressings are removed, you will love your new profile. Any scars from the surgery are well-hidden behind the ear or in the natural folds of the ear.
A Natural Transformation
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.
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 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.
