Ear Surgery in Long Island

The appearance of your ears is an important aspect of your overall facial appearance. Ears that are damaged, stretched, protrude, and stick out, or are misshapen can have a significant impact on your self-esteem, both as a child and as an adult. Thankfully, these conditions can be corrected with a custom surgical procedure.

Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that corrects the shape, size, and position of the ears to produce a more natural, balanced, and aesthetic appearance. Dr. James Romanelli, Dr. Yee Cheng Low, and Dr. John Layliev are board-certified plastic surgeons in Melville, NY, who have decades of experience helping women and men of all ages restore confidence in their appearance with this life-altering facial surgery.

No matter the physical irregularity, ear surgery at North Shore Cosmetic Surgery can help you feel confident to show your face from any angle. Call our office in Melville, NY, to learn more.

Who is a candidate for ear surgery?

Ear surgery can be performed on patients of all ages but is most common among children. If your child suffers from an ear deformity, we recommend bringing them in before they reach elementary school to avoid the prospect of bullying and embarrassment. By the time your child reaches six years old, ear surgery is considered safe and effective.

If you or our child feel self-conscious by the look and shape of your ears because of a visible deformity, a custom ear surgery can correct the condition and create a normal, attractive look to your ears. Ear surgery is also an effective solution for anyone with torn, damaged, or stretched earlobes.

The ear surgery procedure

Ear surgery can be performed with either general anesthesia or IV sedation with a local anesthetic, depending on your sensitivity and personal preferences. Your ear surgery in Long Island will be customized to correct your unique condition, but will generally follow one of two basic patterns:

  • Cartilage and ear shape correction: When reshaping the ear, we will place an incision either behind or within the ear and surgically adjust the cartilage, shape, and projection of the ear.
  • Earlobe repair: For stretched or damaged earlobes, the procedure involves making an incision in the earlobe, correcting the deformity, and stitching it back together with dissolvable sutures.

In most cases, each ear is addressed during ear surgery to ensure they appear even. Once complete, the incisions are secured and carefully bandaged to protect them during the healing process.

Ear surgery: Your recovery

Once the surgery is complete, and you are released, you can return home to recover. We will provide you with a healing protocol before you leave our office. It's critical that you or your child not touch, pick at, or scratch your ears as they heal. Additionally, we will ask you to avoid lying on the ears and sleep with your head elevated the first few days of the healing process.

You will have a follow-up appointment roughly one week after the surgery, at which point one of our plastic surgeons in Long Island will remove the wrappings and make sure your ears are healing properly. Your results will appear right away and will continue to look better as the days pass.
