Introduction to Ear Correction Surgery (Otoplasty)

Dr. Zuckerman can perform otoplasty, or ear correction surgery, on both children and adults, and this procedure can dramatically improve both aesthetic appearance and the patient’s self-esteem. Ear correction surgery is a procedure designed to reduce the effects of ears that protrude too far from the head. Dr. Zuckerman is highly skilled and adept at otoplasty procedures and trained at some of the most respected medical institutions in the world, including Brown University and New York University. Dr. Zuckerman and his medical staff can provide you or your child with effective surgery that will bring the ears to a less prominent position. Dr. Zuckerman can also perform various forms of ear lobe reconstruction after cancer, split earlobes from long-term earring-wear, or stretched / gauged earring holes.

Am I A Candidate For Ear Correction Surgery (Otoplasty)?



Corrective ear surgery (otoplasty) is most commonly performed on children after their ear cartilage has matured and when the entire external ear is at least 75% of the ultimate size of the adult ear. This typically occurs between ages 5 and 8 years. In addition, this age allows time for the participation and involvement of the child in the decision making process.

Ear lobe reconstruction can be performed by Dr. Zuckerman on patients of most ages.

Ear Correction Surgery (Otoplasty) in Detail



Ear Correction Surgery (Otoplasty) Procedure

The goal of ear surgery is to create a proportionate relationship between the ears for their balance with the face and head, essentially restoring harmony and symmetry between both ears. One of the most common techniques for ear surgery involves a small incision created in the back of the ear. Cartilage is sculpted and then bent back toward the head. Non-removable stitches can be placed so that the ears retain the new shape.

Otoplasty typically takes about two hours to complete under general anesthesia (commonly used for younger patients) or local anesthesia with a sedative (often used in older children and adults). The procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis.

Ear Lobe Reconstruction

As a reconstructive procedure possible addressing several different types of issues, ear lobe reconstruction can vary from a simple twenty minute in-office procedure to a multi-hour and multi-stage reconstruction performed in the operating room. Dr. Zuckerman will advise you as to the specifics of your needed procedure.

Ear surgery can be performed at Dr. Zuckerman’s state-of-the-art operating room located inside his office in midtown Manhattan. Certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF), this operatory is fully equipped and recognized for adhering to only the highest standards of care.

Ear Correction Surgery (Otoplasty) Recovery



Ear correction surgery (Otoplasty) is known for its minimal recovery process. Patients can expect a mild degree of swelling and bruising, but this can be managed with medication. Once bandages are removed after about a week, a special headband will be necessary for several weeks to make sure the ears heal properly into the desired position. Patients can typically resume normal daily activities after about a week. With that in mind, patients are advised to avoid activities that may harm the ear or ears until the healing process is complete.
