Crafting a Look You’ll Love at Leif Rogers, MD in Beverly Hills

Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, is a surgical procedure that is performed to alter the shape, size, or position of the ears. It is commonly used to correct deformities, such as protruding ears, that can affect a person’s self-esteem or cause them to feel self-conscious. While most cosmetic surgeries are performed on adults, ear surgery is often performed on children, where it can have a positive effect on their social experience and self-confidence. 

If you or your child are interested in exploring the results made possible by ear surgery, our team is standing by and ready to help. Ear surgery is an ideal way to overcome cosmetic frustrations that can sometimes be caused by your simple genetic makeup, enabling you to exercise more agency over the way you look. Reach out to our Beverly Hills office and speak with a helpful team member to set up your initial consultation today.

Dr. Rogers’ Surgical Expertise

There are several different types of procedures that may be performed depending on the specific issue being addressed, and Dr. Rogers will call upon his extensive surgical experience to choose the procedural technique that’s right for you. Ear pinning, for example, is a type of ear surgery that is often used to correct ears that stick out too far from the head by reshaping the cartilage and pulling the ears closer to the head so that they are more flush with the scalp. Other surgical techniques can also be utilized to repair lobes that have been torn or stretched, and Dr. Rogers will work closely with you to ensure that your surgical plan is tailored directly to your personal cosmetic goals.

Ear surgery is a medical procedure that may very well be ideal for you if you’ve found yourself concerned about the appearance of your ears or if you have experienced hearing problems due to structural abnormalities of your ear. An ideal candidate for ear surgery will be in good physical health and won’t have any medical issues that may interfere with the healing process.

Why Our Patients Love Ear Surgery

Your ears are a key component when it comes to your sense of facial harmony, and you’re absolutely not alone if you’ve felt frustrated by the way they contribute to your facial appearance. Ear surgery is a great way to enjoy a look that feels more balanced and harmonious.

Some of the reasons our patients love ear surgery include:

  • Improved appearance
  • Minimal scarring
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Outpatient procedure
  • Corrected hearing problems
  • Quick recovery time

Dr. Rogers’ Surgical Technique

Most ear surgeries are performed using local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. Local anesthesia involves numbing the ear area, and sedation will help to keep you calm and relaxed during the procedure. 

Ear pinning surgery that is performed to correct the presence of protruding ears may take around one to two hours to complete, while more complex procedures such as ear reconstruction or microtia repair may take longer.

Dr. Rogers always utilizes the most advanced techniques, and works hard to ensure that incisions are placed as inconspicuously as possible, so you can enjoy results that don’t involve any conspicuous, visible scarring.

Your Recovery and Results

In terms of returning to normal activities, most patients are able to return to work or school within a week or two after the procedure, depending on the type of surgery and the extent of the recovery needed. You’ll be given a detailed timeline that explains your recovery period to you before the date of your surgery, and our team will ensure that they’re available to you at all times, so they can address any questions that might arise during your recovery process.

Ear surgery is a great way to achieve cosmetic goals that might not actually be directly related to the aging process, enabling you to adjust the way you look and enjoy an appearance that is more directly in line with your cosmetic appeal. When performed on children, ear surgery can also have the added benefit of resolving difficult social situations by creating a more pleasing appearance.
