What is Otoplasty?

Otoplasty is a common procedure used to correct large, uneven and misshapen ears. We know that body image and concerns about one’s appearance are developed as early as 2-3 years of age. When children are perceived to have deformities of the ears, they are often subjected to naïve, but nevertheless, cruel teasing. As a result, children as young as 4-5 years of age are frequently very determined to undergo ear surgery and are typically very cooperative.

How is Otoplasty Performed?

Otoplasty begins with incisions being made behind the ear, where they are easily hidden in a natural crease. Dr. Fodor removes excess skin and sculpts the cartilage, reducing the size of the ears and repositioning them closer to the head.

Permanent sutures may be placed in the cartilage to secure its new position and create natural-looking ear folds. Although young children usually receive general anesthesia, for adults the procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia on an outpatient basis.

Complications from Otoplasty are rare and, as a general rule, the results are quite rewarding.

How Much Does Ear Surgery Cost?

The cost for otoplasty will vary depending on the severity of your case and techniques used for surgery. At your consultation, Dr. Fodor will be happy to discuss your options and cost based on your needs.
