Otoplasty can provide great psychological benefits to those who have been harassed about their ear size or shape. Ear surgery can correct the effects of aging and trauma. Whether it be a severe ear injury, stretched earlobes, or to improve the appearance of the ear, Dr. Antunes in Austin, TX, can treat all of these issues.
The procedure: Reshaping your ears
The first step is placing an incision behind your ear. Through this incision, the amount of ear cartilage is reduced or pulled back with sutures to create the ideal level of projection. More complex problems, such as a lack of ear fold that creates a curved, shell-shaped ear, or ears that have a top fold that bends over, or an exceptionally small ear (cupped ear) will require more time to correct. Ear reconstruction requires knowledge and finesse, and at Face Austin, you will be under the care of one of Austin’s most qualified, experienced facial plastic surgeons, who is trained in advanced facial reconstruction techniques.
