More About the Ear Surgery Procedure
For most patients, an otoplasty performed in Dr. Doshi’s Brooklyn or Long Island offices takes anywhere from 45 minutes to three hours. This, of course, depends on the specific type of otoplasty performed, and whether or not it’s being performed in conjunction with any other facial surgeries. Depending on what specific issues you’re looking to address, Dr. Doshi will choose the ear surgery procedure that will best suit your needs.
Also known as “ear pinning,” the ear shaping surgery typically involves an adjustment to the size and shape of the ear. Through an incision made behind the ear, Dr. Doshi will sculpt and replace the ear’s cartilage, to create a more balanced and symmetrical appearance.
Torn Earlobe Repair
Some patients come to Dr. Doshi with earlobes that have been torn or damaged in one way or another. Whether you’re looking to walk back the effects of so-called gauge earrings, or have simply dealt with some other earlobe-related misfortune, Dr. Doshi can quickly and easily repair your damaged earlobe.
Ear Lobe Reduction
Patients who feel as though their ear lobes are too large or protrude too far out can visit Dr. Doshi in his Long Island or Brooklyn office for an otoplasty procedure designed to simply reduce the size of the earlobes for a slimmer, more attractive profile.
