Is Otoplasty the Right Procedure for Me?

Most commonly, otoplasty refers to the ear pinning procedure which brings the ears closer to the head so they are less prominent. It can also mean reshaping the ear or reducing its size to help balance your features.

Otoplasty may be the right option for you if:

  • Your ears protrude significantly from your head
  • Your ears are unusually shaped, or out of proportion with your head
  • Your ears are uneven or asymmetrical

Otoplasty FAQ

What are the benefits of otoplasty?

Otoplasty, or ear surgery, can resolve ears that are oversized, protruding, or asymmetrical. There are many advantages to having ear surgery, including resolving overlarge and protruding ears, balancing features and overall head shape, allowing you to reveal your ears and wear any hairstyle, and boosting your self-esteem.

Are the results permanent?

The results of otoplasty are long-lasting. The ear cartilage may settle or change slightly over time, but the results typically last a lifetime.

Is otoplasty covered by insurance?

Insurance doesn’t cover cosmetic procedures, but your ear surgery may be covered when ear function is involved. We can help you with financing options so you can get your ear surgery when you want it.

Will I have visible scarring after ear surgery?

After surgery, your incisions will heal and finally appear as a thin, fine line, behind your ear. Dr. Wirth will conceal the incision along the back of the ear where it will be virtually unnoticeable.

Will otoplasty impact my hearing?

Otoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that only treats the outer ear. Any changes to how sounds enter your ear are minor, and usually unnoticeable. Your hearing is not likely to be affected by otoplasty.

What results can I expect after ear surgery?

An otoplasty procedure in Newport Beach is almost always focused on the back of the ear, meaning any scarring that may occur is generally invisible. Patients generally experience mild discomfort for a few days after the surgery, during which time the surgery site will have soft dressings. During the healing process, side sleepers may experience an adjustment period, as they cannot put pressure on these areas until fully healed.

It is important to maintain good post-operative care as directed by our team for the best results! When your bandages are removed, your newly-reshaped ears will be visible. You will notice a more flattering ear shape and size, balanced with your features. Your ears will complement your facial structure and head shape, with your ears far less noticeable, allowing your best features to stand out.
