Cosmetic Ear Surgery


Dr. Compton performs multiple kinds of cosmetic ear surgery, from otoplasty (ear pinning) to repairing ear piercing holes that have been stretched out or torn through, as well as gauge repairs and ear lobe reductions, and even ear piercing! Almost all ear procedures can be performed in the office with local anesthesia and very minimal or no downtime!


Otoplasty Featured BxA

This procedure is performed on patients young and old alike with ears that stick out far from their head. It can be done on a patient starting at age 6-7 depending on their tolerance, as long as the patient themselves is interested in having the procedure done, as the patient needs to be involved in the post op care. Depending on the complexity of the case and age, it can be performed in the office or in the OR. After the procedure you will have to wear a head wrap that protects the ears and keep them dry for a period of time.


“Great job”

Earring Tear Through/Gauge Repair

If you have one or both lobes with a long, stretched out piercing hole or previously had gauged ears, you can have them repaired in a simple procedure in the office. Dr. Compton performs this procedure after injecting the ear lobe/s with local anesthetic. A small area around the torn skin is cut away then sutured together which will heal into an almost imperceptible scar. Re-piercing can be done in the office 6-8 weeks after repair.

Your Cosmetic Ear Surgery will be performed by Dr. Andrew Compton at Royal Oak Beaumont Hospital, West Bloomfield surgery center or in his office in Troy.

Ear Lobe Reduction

Dr. Compton performs this procedure in the office in a 1-2 hour procedure using local anesthesia. The procedure itself is painless and you will be consulted during the procedure to be sure the desired shape is obtained.
