What Is an Otoplasty, and What Can It Do For You?

Plastic surgery isn’t just about improving your appearance. It’s about improving your self-confidence. If you were teased in school about some aspect of your body, like your large nose or noticeable ears, then you’re not alone. Luckily there are many plastic surgery procedures out there that can adjust or correct prominent body characteristics. An otoplasty is one of them. An otoplasty is a procedure to correct ear prominence or asymmetry.


At Rowley Plastic Surgery in Lubbock, TX Dr. Jane Rowley has the experience and expertise to correct your ear shape with an otoplasty. Dr. Rowley recommends that kids who are being teased at school due to large ears should wait to have an otoplasty until they are old enough to discuss the procedure and what it entails with their parents.


In this procedure, an incision is made behind the ear, and internal sutures are placed to reshape the contour of the ear cartilage and to bring the ears closer to the head. There is not very much pain associated with the surgery. Besides a head dressing for a week, the recovery is fairly straightforward with little to no complications.


The nice thing about an otoplasty is that it can be performed at any age, whether you’re seven years old or fifty-seven. So if your parents told you to just, “suck it up” or “ignore” those kids who teased you at school, it’s not too late to improve your self-confidence with an otoplasty.
