How Is Otoplasty Performed?
For patients with protruding ears in San Ramon, Danville, and Walnut Creek, 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.
Dr. Mariotti offers much more than beautiful results - he'll ensure that you feel relaxed and cared for. Discover why people from around Walnut Creek trust him for their plastic surgery.
