Frequently Asked Questions

I am a 22 year old exercise fanatic. I want to have an Otoplasty procedure done. How soon can I start exercising after my surgery?

Posted by William O'Mara

You can start on light treadmill walking after 10-14 days, but wait approximately 3 weeks for full exercise. Ear pain will most likely be your limiting factor until then. …

My son is 5 years old and has very large ears that also stick way out from his head. I feel he is a candidate for otoplasty. My husband and I always tell him he is perfect just the way he is. He will start school this fall and we are concerned about the social ridicule he will most likely receive. Should we approach this surgery with him now or wait until the children start making fun of him in school?

If your son has outstanding ears but hasn't expressed to you self-consciousness about them, I see no reason to pursue an otoplasty at this time. However, if he is keenly a…

My five year old son has very large protruding ears. I know that he will endure ridicule and teasing if we do not have this corrected. I would like to know if it is safe to have an Otoplasty performed on a child and what type of anesthesia and medication will be required?

Otoplasty is one of the most rewarding procedures I offer. I usually like to wait until approximately 6-7 years of age, depending on the growth and maturity of the patient. F…

I'm 27, and I just got engaged. My fiance loves me the way I am, but I'd like to get ear surgery to fix how far my ears stick out as a surprise. I think she would love the new look. My wedding is in nine months. Is there enough time for me to get ear surgery and be completely healed by the wedding?

Posted by William O'Mara

You have more than enough time to undergo otoplasty and be healed before your wedding. I would recommend approximately three months of healing before your wedding, so you ha…

My child is only 4, but the children at preschool make him feel bad about how much his ears stick out. It makes me very sad that he has become sensitive about his appearance at such a young age, but he has asked me why his ears are so different. He seems very upset about it. Is he old enough for an otoplasty?

Posted by William O'Mara

I generally perform otoplasty in children a little older than your son. I would recommend wait another couple of years. His ears will be a more mature size, and he will to…

I'm a junior in high school, and I have a chunk out of one earlobe from my earring getting caught and ripping out when I was 13. I'm very self-conscious about it, and I want it to be fixed so I can look great in my senior pictures next year. How long would I have to take off school to recover from ear surgery?

This is a relatively easy procedure that I perform in my office procedure room. It is done with local anesthesia and usually takes about twenty minutes to complete. The ear…

I fly a lot for business trips. I want to get an otoplasty to fix how my ears droop at the top. My ears tend to be sensitive to pressure changes, so I experience a lot of discomfort when I fly. Will it be even more uncomfortable to fly while I recover from my otoplasty?

Posted by William O'Mara

The ear discomfort that you currently experience is probably due to inability to equalize the pressure differential between the cabin pressure and the space behind your eardr…

I'd like to get my ears pinned because they protrude very far and are mouse-like. How long does this surgery take? Is it invasive?

Posted by William O'Mara

Surgery for protruding ears is called otoplasty. This typically takes approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours and can be done under general anesthesia, IV sedation, or local anesthes…

My ear lobes are incredibly large and I would like to reduce them by almost half. Can this be done during typical otoplasty surgery?

Ear lobe reduction is a relatively straightforward adjunctive procedure that can be done during standard otoplasty surgery. There are many techniques to reduce large ear lob…

How is incisionless otoplasty performed? Are there any scars or tissue damage after the procedure?

Posted by William O'Mara

The incisionless otoplasty is performed by threading needles with suture through precise areas of the skin behind the ear. Once the suture is threaded beneath the skin and p…
