Cosmetic Ear Surgery
Cosmetic Ear surgery, or Otoplasty, is a procedure designed to correct and shape abnormally protruding or misshapen ears.
Otoplasty can be performed under local anesthesia in adults. Dr. Montegut will make an incision in the back of the ear so the scar will remain inconspicuous. The ear cartilage is then manipulated and reshaped to a normal contour.
Following Otoplasty, a bandage is worn for about 5 days after which a light compression garment may be worn at night for a short while. Stitches are removed within a few days days postoperatively.
