Ear surgery is ideal for those with larger ears that project outwards, creating a more balanced appearance and repairing earlobes that have become stretched or torn.
Creating a More Attractive Facial Profile
Ear surgery (also known as otoplasty) is performed to improve the shape, position, and proportion of your ears. Ear surgery is often performed on children and adults alike, and can help prevent years of ridicule and teasing by one’s peers. A relatively quick procedure, ear surgery can correct a birth defect of the ear structure and for some patients, surgery is only needed on one ear.
Correction of even minor deformities can have profound beneﬁts on a patient’s appearance and self-esteem. Whether to tuck protruding ears back or to reduce the size of large ears, ear surgery at CosmetiCare has become an increasingly popular procedure. To learn more, simply reach out to us at our Newport Beach location and speak with a helpful member of our team to set up your initial consultation.

Your Ear Surgery Experience
For some patients, local anesthesia may be considered as opposed to general anesthesia. You can discuss the best option for you during a consultation with your surgeon. During this consultation, you’ll learn everything you might need to know about your surgery and the techniques that’ll be used to create your results.
Patients should keep in mind that ear surgery will not result in “perfect” symmetry. However, most people are extremely pleased with their outcome, especially if they had realistic expectations prior to surgery. Some patients may choose an additional procedure to further enhance their facial symmetry, such as rhinoplasty to adjust the profile of their nose.
Recovery After Ear Surgery
Most patients are typically able to return to normal activities within a few days post-surgery. Your sutures will be removed after a week. You can expect your ears to be tender, swollen, and red for several weeks post-op. We’ll give you a detailed recovery timeline, and thorough aftercare instructions that’ll help you stay comfortable as you rest and recover. After four to six weeks, you’ll be able to resume all normal activities, including sports.
