What is Otoplasty?

Commonly referred to as ear surgery, otoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that alters the shape, position, or size of the ears. It's often performed to correct misshapen ears, prominent ears, but it can also address a variety of other ear deformities. Adults and children who are self-conscious about their ears can undergo this procedure. By creating a more balanced appearance, otoplasty can significantly improve an individual's self-esteem and confidence.

What to Expect Before, During, and After Otoplasty

Consultation and Preparation

The first step in enhancing your ear is an initial consultation with Dr. Askari, a board-certified plastic surgeon. During this meeting, you'll have the opportunity to discuss your aesthetic desires, medical history, and any concerns or questions. Dr. Askari will thoroughly explain the otoplasty procedure, ensuring you understand each aspect, and will determine if you're an ideal candidate for the surgery. Before the procedure, Dr. Askari will also guide you through the preparation process, providing specific instructions customized to your needs.

Anesthesia and Surgical Procedure

Regarding the actual otoplasty surgery, Dr. Askari and our team at Revive Surgical Institute ensure the utmost comfort for our patients by administering the appropriate anesthesia. General anesthesia is typically used for children, while adults usually receive local anesthesia, allowing a pain-free experience throughout the procedure. The surgical process involves Dr. Askari making precise incisions behind the ears or within the inner creases, depending on the individual's needs. Following this, he skillfully reshapes the ear cartilage to achieve the desired appearance. Under Dr. Askari's expert hands, the procedure typically takes about two to three hours, a small investment of time for a significant enhancement in aesthetics and self-confidence.

Recovery and Follow-Up Visit

Post-surgery, under the careful guidance of Dr. Askari, you will enter the recovery phase. Initially, your ears will be bandaged to provide both protection and support. It's normal to experience discomfort and swelling during this period but rest assured; these symptoms will subside over time. Integral to your recovery are the follow-up appointments with Dr. Askari. These appointments allow him to monitor your progress and ensure everything is healing as expected. It's essential to prioritize these appointments and adhere to Dr. Askari's advice, as this will facilitate a smooth and efficient recovery, bringing you one step closer to enjoying the full benefits of your otoplasty.

Post-Operative Instructions and Results

Upon completing an otoplasty procedure with Dr. Askari, patients receive comprehensive post-operative instructions. These guidelines, meticulously designed to expedite recovery and ensure optimal healing, encompass several key areas. First, they provide detailed advice on post-surgery ear care to prevent complications. Second, they include directives on the application or oral intake of prescribed medications, which are crucial in aiding the healing process and minimizing the risk of infection.

Adherence to these instructions is crucial for a smooth recovery and to achieve the best possible otoplasty results. It's important to remember that each person's body is unique, and recovery times can vary. However, with proper care and rest, you should be able to return to normal activities within a few weeks.

As for the results of the otoplasty, they are typically long-lasting. The shape and positioning of your ears will change significantly once the swelling subsides.

Who is a Good Candidate
for Otoplasty?

The typical patient profile for otoplasty varies widely, as this procedure can benefit individuals across different age groups and backgrounds. However, common characteristics often include individuals who are self-conscious about their ears' size, shape, or positioning. They may have been born with overly large or protruding ears or suffered an injury that altered their ear's appearance. These individuals are generally in good health, with no medical conditions that could impede healing. They have realistic expectations about the surgery results and are motivated to enhance their appearance and boost their self-confidence.
Otoplasty is a versatile procedure that can address a variety of ear-related issues. These include:

Protruding Ears

One of the most common reasons individuals seek otoplasty is to correct protruding ears. This condition, where the ears stick out more than 2 cm from the side of the head, can be corrected through this procedure.

Large Ears

Known as macrotia, this condition is characterized by overly large ears.

Ear Shape

Otoplasty can also address issues related to the shape of the ears, including the lop ear (where the tip folds down and trends forward), the cupped ear (a small ear), and the shell ear (where certain features of a typical ear are missing).

Ear Injury

 Injuries to the ear can result in an altered appearance.

Otoplasty Cost

The average cost of ear surgery Miami typically ranges from $3,000 to $5,000. It's essential to note that this figure is a general estimate and does not include additional charges such as anesthesia, operating room facilities, and other related costs. For a personalized and comprehensive assessment tailored to your unique situation, scheduling a consultation with Dr. Askari is highly recommended. His expertise and understanding of the procedure will provide an apparent experience of the total investment required for otoplasty.

Benefits of Otoplasty

Improved Appearance

Reconstructive ear surgery is a plastic surgery that can significantly enhance the appearance of your ears. Whether it's adjusting the size, shape, or position, this procedure can bring a harmonious balance to your facial features, leading to an improved overall aesthetic.

Boosted Self-Esteem and Confidence

Living with ears that you perceive as too large, small, or oddly shaped can affect your self-esteem. Otoplasty can help rectify these issues, leading to a significant boost in self-confidence. The positive psychological impact of this procedure cannot be overstated.

Permanent Results

Unlike some cosmetic procedures that require ongoing maintenance, the results of otoplasty are typically permanent, which means you can enjoy your new look for a lifetime without additional surgeries.

Safe and Effective

When performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, otoplasty is safe and effective. It has a strong track record of success and a low rate of complications, making it a reliable choice for those seeking to alter the appearance of their ears.

Customizable Results

One of the most appealing aspects of otoplasty is its customizable nature. Each ear surgery is tailored to the individual's unique needs and aesthetic goals, meaning you can achieve natural results and harmony with your other facial features.

Minimal Scarring

Otoplasty is designed to leave minimal visible scarring. The incisions are typically made behind the ears, making any post-surgical marks virtually unnoticeable, which is a significant advantage for those concerned about the aesthetic impact of surgical scars.

Short Recovery Period

The recovery period for ear surgery is relatively short. Most patients can resume regular activities within one to two weeks, making it a convenient choice for busy people who can't afford extended downtime.
