Otoplasty Procedure in Plano, TX

What is an Otoplasty?

An otoplasty is a cosmetic surgery involving a change in shape, position, or size of the ear. These types of procedures are usually conducted to improve some kind of ear deformation that the patient was born with, or that developed as the result of an injury.

While these ear deformities are not typically life threatening, they can pose a significant hindrance to the individual’s confidence and self-esteem.

If you are considering an otoplast for cosmetic or functional reasons, contact board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Lunde to discuss the benefits of a ear pinning surgery and the outcomes of your surgery. Dr. Lunde combined his interest in plastic surgery with his knowledge of the face, head, and neck to fully understand your condition and determine if an otoplasty is the right procedure for you. To schedule an otoplasty consultation at our plastic surgery center in Plano, TX, please call (972) 985-3223 or request an appointment online.

Conditions Treated By Otoplasty

The most common types of ear deformities that can be corrected with an otoplasty include:

  • Macrotia (overly large ears)
  • Protruding ears of various degrees
  • Dissatisfaction with prior ear surgery

Eligibility for an Otoplasty

Ideal candidates for an otoplasty procedure include individuals that:

  • Have fully developed ears, which usually occurs around the age of 5
  • Do not possess any life-threatening medical conditions
  • Are able to effectively communicate their feelings and opinions regarding the surgery and their goals for its effects
  • Do not suffer from chronic ear infections
  • Are nonsmokers

Because a majority of these surgeries are purely cosmetic, is it crucial for the patient to play an active role in all decisions leading up to their otoplasty. Individuals seeking an otoplasty should carefully consider their options for treatment, and should discuss these matters with a certified plastic surgeon in order to obtain realistic expectations for the surgery’s outcome.
