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.
"I had the best experience working with Dr. Schwartz and his beautiful staff! I went in for my second breast augmentation to have my saline implants of 13 years removed and replaced with silicone. Upon meeting Dr. Schwartz, I knew immediately my search was over. He walked me through everything in detail, Listened to every question I had and truly wanted me to have the best experience and what I wanted within reason. From the moment I set foot in his surgery center the day of my surgery, I was greeted with smiles and I felt so comfortable, the nurses, Dr. Chang his anesthesiologist, PCD Laura, all of them, I knew I was in good hands! They look amazing now and I love them! Thank you Dr. Schwartz!"- Anonymous / RealSelf / Jul 03, 2019

"10 STARS at least. This doctor is absolutely amazing. Dallas is lucky to have a doctor of this caliber in the area. We spent months researching and speaking with several doctors in the area. My wife was extremely specific in exactly what she wanted. Dr. Schwartz and the staff spoke and met with her several times to ensure that she got the exact results that she expected. My wife was specifically detailed in her expectations and he has EXCEEDED them. The results are picture perfect and she feels FANTABULOUS.I put in a ton of research on this process. I read, reviewed, and watched it seems like a million articles or videos on day to day post op expectations. There are so many stories of girls having issues and pains during the first 7 days post op. I tell you from day one my wife had ZERO PAIN!.......I will say that again ZERO PAIN. We stuck to the medications down to the second and her recovery was pain free....THIS MAN/DOCTOR IS AN ABSOLUTE ROCKSTAR!!!!!!!!"- S.B. / Google / Feb 14, 2020
"I came to Dr Schwartz a very anxious and shy person and from my first consult to my 6 month post-op check in, I have never felt so comfortable and confident under any other medical professional. I’m short and shaped a little oddly, and expressed concern with having the volume I wanted without looking like a caricature. Dr Schwartz took my “dream boobies” photos and translated them to suit my body better than I could have anticipated. I look so much more balanced and proportional without a bra on, and I have never felt so confident in my own skin and motivated to take care of my body. I feel like my true self and I am still in absolute love with my new breasts. The entire staff is really friendly and easy to talk to, the drive to surgery was more stressful than the actual procedure because they took such excellent care of me. I fit in my clothes so much better, I walk with more confidence at work, and my boyfriend has noticed improvements in my posture and the frequency in which I smile in the mirror. Thank you so much for blessing my life with newfound confidence and pride in my body. I never thought I’d feel this good about my body but I’m so glad I researched, found an incredible board certified surgeon and took the plunge. I wouldn’t change a thing about my experience."- P.K. / Google / Feb 13, 2020

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.
