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.

The Science Behind Cosmetic Ear Surgery

Cosmetic ear surgery, or otoplasty, is a precise medical procedure designed to reshape and enhance the aesthetics of the ears. This surgical artistry is rooted in a deep understanding of ear anatomy, including the intricate structure of cartilage and skin.

Dr. Compton employs specialized external ear surgery techniques to sculpt the ear’s contours, often involving strategically removing, folding, or scoring of cartilage. The key to its success lies in the meticulous precision of incisions and sutures, enabling ears to be repositioned closer to the head for a natural, symmetrical appearance.

Modern advancements have allowed otoplasty to be conducted under local anesthesia, reducing risks and discomfort. Additionally, patients typically recover quickly, thanks to scientific innovations in surgical procedures and aftercare.

Dr. Compton’s expertise in the science of otoplasty ensures that you can undergo this transformative procedure to achieve aesthetically pleasing and harmonious ear contours with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Recovery and Results

Patients can look forward to a swift and comfortable recovery following ear surgery for smaller ears, starting with wearing a protective head wrap to safeguard the ears during the initial healing phase. Most patients can return to their daily activities within a short period, and as the healing process continues, you will notice the gradual transformation of your ear contours, revealing the appearance you’ve always wanted.

Dr. Compton’s meticulous approach ensures that you achieve natural-looking results. Discover the remarkable difference that cosmetic ear surgery can make under his expert care.
