Dr. Joseph Mazza, board certified plastic surgeon, performs ear repositioning cosmetic surgery (otoplasty) at his Ft. Myers Plastic Surgery Center located in Ft. Myers, Fl. Otoplasty is performed on children and adults who are unhappy with the size, shape and proportion of their ears.
Many of Dr. Mazza’s patients have been bothered by their protruding or large ears since they were young and some have had ear surgery but aren’t pleased with the result. If you are bothered by ears that protrude and that are not in balance with your facial features, schedule a consultation with Dr. Joseph Mazza.
IS EAR SURGERY (OTOPLASTY) RIGHT FOR ME?
CONSULTATION PROCESS WITH JOSEPH MAZZA, M.D.
Otoplasty is different for each patient depending on whether you need your ears reshaped, reduced or pulled in closer to your head. Dr. Mazza advises that ear surgery is performed by plastic surgeons to correct a defect in the ear structure that is often present at birth. Since your ears develop at a faster rate than your other facial features, the ears appear overly large and protrude from the head.
Under Dr. Mazza’s expert surgical skill, cosmetic ear surgery will result in a noticeable improvement for those patients with developmental ear problems or misshapen ears that may result from an accident or injury.
OTOPLASTY PROCEDURE AND RECOVERY
To correct prominent or protruding ears, an incision is made in the back of the ear so Dr. Joseph Mazza can precisely remove the excess cartilage that is causing the ear to stick out from the patient’s head. The next step is to “pin” the ear back along the fold into a new more cosmetically appealing position.
Otoplasty is performed on an outpatient basis. Normal swelling occurs around the ears following the surgery. However, recovery is relatively quick as most adults return to work within a week.
