What exactly is otoplasty?
Otoplasty, also known as ear surgery or ear reshaping, is a cosmetic procedure that can be used to improve the appearance of the ears.
It involves reshaping, repositioning and/or reducing the size of one or both ears in order to create a more symmetrical look. Otoplasty can also help correct defects caused by birth or injury such as lop ears and protruding ears.
The procedure is relatively quick and easy with minimal downtime afterwards, making it an ideal choice for those who want to enhance their self-confidence without taking too much time away from their daily life.
With proper care and sun protection, otoplasty results are long lasting and can provide you with improved self-esteem for years to come.

Questions & Answers
Have questions about otoplasty in Utah? We have answers!
1. What is ear surgery?
Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty or ear pinning, is a type of cosmetic surgery that reshapes or repositions the ears in order to improve their overall appearance.
This procedure can be performed for both children and adults and can help correct congenital defects, such as protruding ears, or address asymmetrical features.
2. What are the benefits of otoplasty?
The primary benefit of ear surgery is improved self-confidence and self-esteem. This procedure can significantly improve the appearance of the ears, helping people feel better about their overall appearance.
Additionally, it can help reduce bullying and teasing that may have been experienced due to the shape or size of one’s ears. Ear surgery can also be beneficial for those with hearing loss as it can improve the quality and clarity of sound by repositioning or reshaping the ear.
3. What are the risks of otoplasty?
The risks of ear surgery include potential complications, such as infection, scarring, and asymmetry. The procedure can also cause temporary numbness or a decrease in hearing. It is important to speak with your doctor about the potential risks prior to having this type of surgery.
Additionally, it is essential to ensure the surgeon performing the procedure has significant experience in performing this type of surgery.
4. How do I prepare for otoplasty?
It is important to discuss any medical conditions you may have with your doctor prior to having ear surgery. Additionally, it is recommended that you stop smoking or using nicotine for at least two weeks prior to the procedure.
You should also follow any specific instructions given by your surgeon regarding eating, drinking, and taking medications before the procedure. Finally, make sure you have a trusted friend or family member who can take you home after the surgery and help you if needed.
5. What can I expect after otoplasty?
After ear surgery, you may experience some swelling and bruising around the ears. It is important to avoid any strenuous activities during the healing process and to follow your doctor’s instructions for aftercare.
You should also wear a bandage or headband to support the new shape of your ears as they heal. Final results can take up to several months to become visible.
6. How long does otoplasty surgery last?
Ear surgery typically takes between one and two hours to complete. The exact amount of time required can vary depending on the complexity of the procedure. Your surgeon will be able to provide you with a more accurate estimate during your consultation.
7. How much does otoplasty cost?
The cost of ear surgery varies depending on a variety of factors, including the complexity of the procedure, the geographic location of the surgeon, and any additional procedures that may be needed.
On average, ear surgery can cost anywhere from $3,000 and up. It is important to keep in mind that the cost of ear surgery is not typically covered by insurance.
8. What are the types of otoplasty?
There are several different types of ear surgery, including otoplasty, contouring, and reconstruction. Otoplasty is the most common type and involves reshaping or repositioning the ears.
Contouring can be used to improve symmetry and reduce the size of overly large ears. Reconstruction is used to repair defects or injuries due to birth defects, accidents, or to correct hearing loss. Each type of surgery has different techniques and approaches that are used to achieve the desired results.
9. Is otoplasty an invasive procedure?
Yes, ear surgery is considered a surgical procedure and can involve cutting and repositioning the cartilage of the ears. Depending on the type of procedure, an incision may need to be made behind the ear in order to access and reshape the cartilage.
10. When can I return to my normal activities after otoplasty?
It typically takes up to 4 weeks for the ears to fully heal after ear surgery. During this time, you should avoid any strenuous activities or contact sports that could cause further injury or damage to the area.
Additionally, your surgeon may recommend wearing a headband or bandage over the ears while they heal in order to protect them from trauma and to help maintain their new shape. After the healing period is over, you can usually return to your normal activities.
11. How long will the results of otoplasty last?
The results of ear surgery are generally permanent. However, it is important to keep in mind that the shape and size of your ears may change over time due to factors such as age and weight gain or loss.
Additionally, it is important to use sun protection on the ears if you plan to be outdoors for extended periods of time. This will help maintain your results.
12. Who is a good candidate for otoplasty?
Ear surgery is typically recommended for adults who are looking to improve the appearance of their ears. It may also be an option for children as young as 5 or 6 years old, depending on their body development and the complexity of the procedure.
Your best bet is to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to determine if ear surgery is right for you.
