Do you have ears that stick out or are too large? Don’t let your ears be a source of embarrassment any longer!

Otoplasty is a fairly simple treatment, and it can be performed on patients of all ages, including children. Contact us today at 801-576-5910 if you are interested in receiving your cosmetic ear revision, and schedule your consultation with our caring doctors.
For many people, protruding or large ears can weaken self-confidence and become a source of frequent embarrassment. The psychological effects of larger ears can arise during childhood or wait until adulthood; no matter your age or situation, ear surgery, or otoplasty, is a great solution to improve the appearance of your ears.
Children are great candidates for otoplasty. Because children are still growing, their cartilage is more moldable than that of adults; this increased flexibility makes it easier to reshape the ear. Also, children who receive otoplasty at an early age can avoid the teasing that often comes from having larger or protruding ears.
Otoplasty is performed under local anesthesia in our comfortable, state-of-the-art facility. To start, our cosmetic oral surgeon will make an incision in the fold where the ear is attached to the head. Our doctors will then reshape or remove the cartilage until they have established the new look you want. We will use permanent sutures to hold the cartilage in its new position. After your surgery, you may experience some discomfort. Our doctors will apply soft bandages and dressings to protect your ears, and you will need to wear them for several days. You will also not be able to sleep on your side for about a week. Our caring team will help you know any other post-op instructions to protect your ears and ensure your surgery’s success.
If you have any questions about otoplasty, we welcome you to visit or call our office! We want to help you feel comfortable and confident in the way you look!
