Ear Surgery, also known as Otoplasty, is the surgical procedure that helps men, women and children alike with protruding or oddly shaped ears. It can help the actual shape of the ears, the proportion, as well as the position of ears. Dr. John Park believes and has experienced that even the slightest improvement to one’s ears can have a profound effect on their appearance as well as their self esteem.
Overall, this procedure is minimally invasive and has a quick recovery time. Dr. Park usually makes the incisions for otoplasty behind the ear where he can then remove skin or reshape any cartilage if necessary. If an incision is needed on the front of the ear he makes sure to do so in the natural fold or crease of the ear ensuring minimal visible scarring.
Otoplasty offers almost immediate results once any dressing or bandages are removed. There is some soreness and discomfort for a few days with patients resuming normal activities within a few weeks. Dr. John Park understands that ear surgery, along with any other cosmetic procedure is a very personal choice and may not always be an easy decision to make. During your consultation he will listen carefully and compassionately to your vision and the overall look you wish to achieve. He then will examine your ears and the two of you together can determine the best course of action.
