Ear surgery corrects aesthetic ear conditions. At SVIA, we perform customized ear surgeries with precision and attention to detail. Our entire team is compassionate, professional, informative, and approachable.
Types of ear surgeries
Most ear surgeries are performed to resolve protruding ears. As both cosmetic and reconstructive surgeons, we perform several surgical procedures:
Called “otoplasty,” this surgery draws the ears closer to the head to frame the face, rather than being a noticeable feature. If you avoid certain hairstyles due to protruding ears, this surgery can increase your confidence in all the years ahead.
If you feel your ears are overly large, they can be reshaped to create a more ideal balance. Shell-shaped ears can be altered to resolve the condition with a custom surgery.
Ear lobe correction
Some people inherit larger, hanging earlobes, and want to alter them so they are smaller and more attractive. If an earlobe has been ripped or stretched, they can be resolved with a minor in-office surgery.
Who is a candidate for ear surgery?
Most children and adults with prominent or misshapen ears are good candidates for a custom ear surgery at SVIA in Sacramento. For children to be eligible, the ears must be mature, which occurs at around age five or six. In adults, you should be in good general health to undergo the surgery and want to create a more appealing look to your ears.
What to expect in ear surgery?
If you are considering undergoing cosmetic ear surgery, you want to know what to expect. For adults, this surgery only requires local and intravenous anesthesia. It is performed with precision in our private, luxury clinic in Sacramento. The procedure takes one to two hours and is an outpatient surgery. Once completed, you can return home to rest and recover.
