What Is Otoplasty?
Your ears work with other features of your face to create an overall balance. Having ears that are disproportionate or that stand out too much detracts from your eyes and smile. Otoplasty is a cosmetic procedure that is recommended for adults who wish to change the size, shape, and orientation of the ears.
Ear surgery in Nashville may involve:
- Removing cartilage
- Using grafts of cartilage to build up areas
- Removing soft tissues
- Suturing the ears closer to the head
What Is the Cost of Ear Surgery?
The average cost of otoplasty in Nashville does vary by patient. We can discuss the details of your cost for ear surgery at the time of your consultation. For your convenience, Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers financing options for qualified patients.
What Are the Benefits of Otoplasty?
The primary benefit of ear surgery is enhancing harmony between the ears and facial structure. Otoplasty does not affect hearing.
What Is the Recovery Time for Ear Surgery?
The outer ears do not contain bone, so healing from otoplasty requires special attention from our patients in Nashville. Your ears are wrapped in a bandage to prevent injury and hold the cartilage in place until it heals. You should avoid any activities that increase the risk of impact to and pressure on the ears, including sleeping on your side.
Healing time varies, and our surgeons will explain what to expect during your recovery from ear surgery at the time of your consultation. You are also given post-surgical aftercare instructions, and we recommend that someone be present during this discussion to ensure that you are able to care for your ears after otoplasty.
