Restore Balance With Ear Surgery in Long Island

Dissatisfaction with the way your ears look can be a difficult reality, for adults and children alike. Ears that are either too small or too large can create an imbalanced appearance, resulting in issues like anxiety and a loss of self-esteem, which nobody should have to deal with. Dr. Doshi performs ear surgery (also known as otoplasty) on adults and children in his Long Island office, helping to restore self-confidence and ease anxiety in patients both young and old. Ear lobe repair surgery and otoplasty can help you by creating a more balanced, symmetrical look – reach out to us to learn more about how this procedure can benefit you.

Is Otoplasty the Right Procedure for Me?

You’re a great candidate for ear surgery in Long Island if you find the shape or positioning of your ears to be problematic. If you’re considering ear surgery for your child, it’s best to wait until they have reached five or six years of age, which is the point at which the ears tend to reach full size.

For children and adults six years and up, otoplasty is a great way to correct issues like:

  • Overly large ears
  • Ears that protrude too much
  • Misshapen ears
  • Damaged or torn earlobes
  • Cauliflower ear, and other cosmetic issues
  • A prior otoplasty, with unsatisfactory results

More About the Ear Surgery Procedure

For most patients, an otoplasty performed in Dr. Doshi’s 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.

Ear Shaping

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 office for an otoplasty procedure designed to simply reduce the size of the earlobes for a slimmer, more attractive profile.

What’s the Recovery Process Like?

You’ll be able to return home within a few hours of your otoplasty procedure, with a bandage around your head to help with swelling and bruising after the procedure. These things are normal, and will subside rather quickly.

You’ll experience some mild aching and a bit of throbbing for the next few days, which can be easily resolved with medication we’ll provide you. In most cases, you’ll be able to return to work within two to three days, and children are typically clear to return to school within five days.
