Adult candidates for ear surgery have often spent their lives feeling self-conscious about their appearance, often trying to find ways to camouflage their ears and avoiding short or pulled-back hairstyles. Kids can also be teased at school or in their social activities. Ear surgery, or otoplasty, performed by Dr. Eric Mariotti can free you or your child from that self-consciousness and provide a new sense of confidence.
Here is just one of the many children and adults Dr. Mariotti has helped through ear surgery.
How Is Otoplasty Performed?
Otoplasty usually involves an elliptical-shaped incision in the cartilage behind the ear. After making this incision, Dr. Mariotti will shave, flatten, fold, or otherwise manipulate the cartilage to achieve a new shape and correct the position of the external ear. Fine sutures are placed to hold the ears’ new position during healing. Compressive dressings are then applied to protect the surgical site and help hold the ears’ new shape during recovery. Scar lines are located behind the ear and are not visible after recovery.
