Streamline your entire face’s appearance with refined, well-shaped ears.
What is otoplasty?
Otoplasty, more commonly known as cosmetic ear surgery, is the surgical reshaping of the ears. Our board-certified surgeon, Dr. Don Lewis, can reshape your ears, make them smaller, position them in a way that better suits your face, or any combination of the three. This is helpful for patients who have ears that protrude or are misshapen, whether from birth or from an accident of some kind.
How much does otoplasty cost?
Your ears and face are one-of-a-kind. At Texas Dermatology, we believe in treating every individual patient as just that – an individual. This means your procedure and service will be tailored uniquely to you, and price goes along with that. We don’t do one-size-fits-all pricing since your needs aren’t one-size-fits-all.
To get a quote for your ear surgery, schedule a one-on-one consultation with our surgeon, Dr. Don Lewis. During this consultation, he’ll walk through the procedure with you, answer any questions, and help create a custom treatment plan to get you to your aesthetic goals.
What are the benefits of otoplasty?
This procedure makes it possible for you to have ears that better match your face, are less noticeable, and improve your overall look. This has a whole host of benefits.
When you have nice, shapely ears, you’re able to wear accessories and hairstyles that before may have highlighted what you want to hide. You’ll be able to wear flashy earrings, pull your hair back, and wear bright colors confidently.
Finally, if you’ve had ear surgery in the past and aren’t happy with your results, a new otoplasty procedure will help correct this and make sure you love how your ears look. Our surgeon, Dr. Don Lewis, is board-certified with over 20 years of experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Put his expertise to work for you and achieve the beautiful, streamlined appearance you’ve been dreaming of.
Am I a candidate for otoplasty?
If you’re unhappy in any way with how your ears look, good news! You’re most likely eligible for cosmetic ear surgery. This procedure can be performed as soon as the ears are done developing, which usually happens around age 5.
When you come in and have a one-on-one consultation with your surgeon, Dr. Lewis, he’ll go through your health history and help determine if otoplasty would be a good fit for you. You can also ask any questions you may have about the procedure. At Texas Dermatology, your comfort and confidence is our top priority, so we’re here to help every step of the way.
What is recovery like after otoplasty?
Your otoplasty surgery will take around 2 hours to complete. After this, it’s important to make sure your ears are secure and protected. You’ll need to wear a loose headband while sleeping to ensure your new, improved ears don’t shift out of place and your stitches stay in place. This will need to happen anywhere from 2-6 weeks depending on your procedure and healing process.
Dr. Lewis will give you specific instructions to follow while you’re healing so you’ll be completely informed on exactly what you need to do to care for your new ears.
If you’re ready to stop feeling self-conscious about your ears and instead be able to confidently show them off, schedule your consultation today. Dr. Don Lewis and the Texas Dermatology team are standing by to make this possible for you.
