Ear surgery is designed to improve the appearance of your ears. Prominent ears that project outwards can be corrected for a less noticeable, smoothed back appearance. Large piercings can be repaired and aesthetic differences, whether it be the size or shape between both ears, can be balanced to suit the structure of your face.
Dr. Lyons can resize, reshape, repair and reposition your ears to get the aesthetic look that you desire.
At the time of your initial consultation you will sit down with Dr. Lyons to discuss why you are interested in ear surgery and the changes that you would like to see. The details of your surgery will be explained thoroughly.
Dr. Lyons will take the time to listen, and all of your questions will be answered before you leave.
Ear surgery incisions will be well hidden in the natural creases of your ears. You may also require incisions on the back of your ears. Dr. Lyons will determine which incision option is best for you based on your existing anatomy and desired results.
Ear surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes about 1 to 2 hours to complete. You will be comfortable and asleep during your surgery.
Take at least 1 to 10 days off work for recovery. Ear piercing repair may only require 1 day off work, extensive ear surgery such as prominent ear correction will require more downtime.
Every patient’s recovery from ear surgery is unique. You may heal faster than others, however, it’s a good idea to take a few extra days off work to rest and heal.
Your ears will look swollen after your procedure. This symptom is normal and will gradually disappear within a few weeks following surgery. Dr. Lyons will give you very detailed post-operative care instructions to follow during your recovery.
Ear surgery can be combined with other surgical procedures. If you are interested in combining your ear surgery with another procedure, please let us know when you call to reserve your consultation.
