Ear Reshaping (Otoplasty)
Naples Plastic Surgery
Dr. Gardner, Dr. Baccaro, Dr. Walsh, and Dr. Bonett lend their remarkable surgical skills and eye for aesthetics to ear reshaping surgery to help patients obtain the ear shape and aesthetics they desire. Our surgeons take great pride in helping patients throughout the Naples area meet their cosmetic goals by altering the size and/or shape of the ears to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing and balanced look.
Otoplasty in Naples
Our surgeons firmly believe that every cosmetic surgery procedure should be tailored to meet the individual concerns and goals of the patient. Thus, they always personally meet with each of their respective patients to evaluate their ears and discuss their concerns and goals for ear reshaping. Using this information, they create a personalized treatment plan that is as unique as the patient.
Naples Plastic Surgery offers two techniques of otoplasty. The first technique begins with a small incision in the back of the ear, followed by surgical extraction and reshaping of the cartilage in order to pull the ears closer to the head. The second technique maintains the cartilage but extracts excess skin and uses sutures to shape the cartilage to help patients with prominent ears. In addition to cartilage and/or skin extraction, our surgeons may use non-removable stitches in order to help the ears heal properly in their new position.
Dr. Gardner, Dr. Baccaro, Dr. Walsh, and Dr. Bonett also treat patients with malformed ears that have been damaged due to trauma. To ensure symmetry, they often perform otoplasty on both ears, even if only one ear has been damaged.
Recovering from Ear Reshaping Surgery
Following the procedure, our surgeons will dress patients’ heads in thick bandages in order to minimize swelling and promote quicker recovery periods. Patients are typically able to remove the dressings after one to two days, and need one to two weeks of downtime before returning to their daily activities.
