Ear surgery can involve many different procedures. One type is referred to as otoplasty and involves setting back the ears and reducing how far the ears project off the head. This is commonly performed on children before they enter kindergarten and are subjected to peer ridicule.
Patients are able to go home the same day as the procedure and will have to wear a head dressing for a week.
Another common procedure is surgery on the ear lobe. This can be to repair large holes in the ear lobe from earrings. It can also be to reduce the size of an excessively large ear lobe. Both of these procedures can be performed in the office with minimal recovery time and the ability to return to work within a few days.
