More about Ear Surgery
During Your Consultation
During your otoplasty consultation, Dr. Davis will assess your concerns and examine your ears. Depending on how much you ears stick out and the size of your ears, he will describe which techniques are needed to give you the result that you want.
During your ear pinning procedure, Dr. Davis will reduce how much you ears stick out by making an incision hidden on the back of the ear and both “pin” the ear back against you head as well as shape the cartilage. Sometimes an incision is needed on the front of the ear hidden in the “bowl” of your ear to reduce the excess cartilage. The surgery takes around 2 hours and is performed under general anesthesia.
After your ear pinning surgery, you will have a head wrap on, and you will return to the office the next day to have the head wrap removed. We will continue to check on you as you recover and are of course here and available any day if you have any questions or concerns. You will need to tuck the top of your ears into a headband or beanie cap full-time for the first 2 weeks and then at night for another 2 weeks. This is to protect your ears from accidently being pulled away from your head. That first week you’ll be a bit bruised and swollen but will be feeling very good at the end of the week. You can begin strenuous exercise and rigorous activity at 8 weeks.
