About Cosmetic Ear Surgery
Ears that protrude and stick out, are misshapen and uneven, or are obviously oversized can affect your self-confidence, especially during the younger years. Cosmetic ear surgery (otoplasty) is a cosmetic treatment that can assist in correcting the shape, size, and position of the ears and produce a natural look. Dr. Robert Schwartz is a plastic surgeon in Dallas, TX who has helped countless men and women overcome the anxiety of showing their ears with this life-changing facial surgery. Regardless of the physical irregularity, ear surgery at Robert Schwartz Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX allows a person to show their face from any angle with confidence.
Otoplasty is ideal for patients of all ages; however, it is more common among young children and is suggested prior to reaching elementary school. By age six, this operative procedure is safe to be performed on a child. If you feel worried by the look and shape of your ears because of a visible deformity, otoplasty may help attain a natural-looking appearance. If you suffer from a torn or damaged earlobe, you are also a candidate for otoplasty.

Plan Your Procedure
Otoplasty is completed using general anesthesia or IV sedation. In many patients, the incision is made behind the ear or inside the inner ear. During surgery, cartilage will be reshaped to create a smaller or larger appearance. It is common for both ears to be altered during the surgical procedure to ensure they look and appear even. After this, the incisions are secured with sutures and carefully bandaged so they stay safeguarded for healing.
What to Expect
When surgery is over and it is safe to leave the outpatient facility, you will recover at home. Dr. Schwartz or a member of his team will provide healing protocol. It is important for you or your child to not rub, touch, or scratch the ears. In addition, you or your child should avoid laying on the ears, instead sleeping upright for a few days. Dr. Schwartz typically likes to see his ear surgery patients back within a week — during this time, he will be able to remove the wrappings and observe the ears. Natural-looking ears can be seen almost immediately and the results will continue to look better as the ears heal.
Reshape Your Ears
Even though the ears are small, the wrong position, shape, or size can make a big difference to you or your child. Ear surgery can help your child avoid teasing at school or reduce your self-consciousness about your ears.
