Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, is a medical procedure to reshape or correct ear deformities. Dr. Singh offers this surgery to individuals seeking aesthetic improvements of the ears or corrective measures for congenital ear irregularities.

Improve Ear Shape,
Size, and Projection

Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is a surgical procedure that alters the shape, position, or overall appearance of the ears. It is commonly performed to address cosmetic concerns such as protruding or disproportionately sized ears. Otoplasty can be a life-changing option for individuals who feel self-conscious about the appearance of their ears, helping them achieve a more balanced and harmonious facial profile.

Form and Function Restoration

Beyond cosmetic purposes, ear surgery can also correct congenital ear anomalies or injuries, restoring both form and function. While the primary goal of otoplasty is to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the ears, it can also address functional issues related to hearing or ear canal irregularities. This procedure is suitable for children and adults who wish to improve the appearance of their ears or correct functional concerns.

Ear Surgery FAQs

Is ear surgery a painful procedure?

Pain tolerance varies among individuals, but in general, ear surgery is not considered excessively painful. Patients may experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the days following the procedure, but these symptoms can be managed with pain medication.

How long is the recovery period after ear surgery?

The recovery period can vary from person to person, but most individuals can return to their normal daily activities within a week to ten days after the surgery. Strenuous physical activities should be avoided for a few weeks for proper healing.

Will there be visible scarring after ear surgery?

While ear surgery incisions are typically well-concealed within the natural creases of the ear or behind the ear, some minimal scarring may occur. However, the scars usually fade over time and become less noticeable. Dr. Singh also offers detailed scar management guidelines.

Are the results of ear surgery permanent?

The results of ear surgery are generally considered permanent, especially when correcting protruding or overly large ears. However, the aging process can affect the appearance of the ears over time.

Are there any risks or complications associated with ear surgery?

Like any surgical procedure, ear surgery carries some risks, including infection, bleeding, scarring, or unsatisfactory results. It’s essential to discuss these risks with your surgeon and follow their post-operative instructions to minimize potential complications. Dr. Singh takes all possible measures to mitigate the risk of complications.
