What is Otoplasty?
Ears that protrude and stick out, are misshapen and uneven, or look oversized can negatively impact your self-confidence, especially during childhood. Ear reshaping surgery (also known as otoplasty) is a cosmetic procedure that helps to redefine the size and shape of the ears to create a more balanced appearance. Cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin have helped many women, men, and children feel comfortable in their own skin with this surgery. Regardless of your cosmetic issue, ear surgery at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates in Jacksonville, FL allows an individual to show their face at any angle with newfound confidence. If you or your child are concerned about the appearance of the ears, contact us to schedule an appointment.

HOW IS EAR PINNING DONE?
Ear reshaping surgery can be performed on people of all ages. However, it is often most common among children. By six years of age, this operative procedure is safe to be completed on a child. If you are self-conscious about the shape and size of your ears because they are misshapen or protrude outward, otoplasty can be considered to attain a normal appearance. Cosmetic ear surgery is completed using anesthesia, either general or IV sedation. Most often, the incision is made around the back portion of the ear or within the inner ear. During surgery, cartilage will be reshaped to create a more natural appearance. It is typical for each ear to be altered during otoplasty to ensure they appear even. After this, the incisions are secured with sutures and carefully bandaged so they can remain protected.
