Do Your Ears Hang Low? Otoplasty Can Fix That

“Do your ears hang low?

Do they wobble to and fro?

Can you tie ‘em in a knot?

Can you tie ‘em in a bow?

Can you throw them over your shoulder?” 

They are the lyrics to a funny children’s song, but if your ears really do hang low or are otherwise malformed, that song might not be so funny! 

Dr. Tom Pousti at Pousti Plastic Surgery in San Diego, California, has the knowledge, experience, and skill to perform otoplasty and make your ears look just the way you’ve always wished they would.

Problems otoplasty can correct

There are lots of reasons you may consider otoplasty, but the bottom line is that you don’t like the way your ears look. Here are some of the issues otoplasty can correct. 

Your ears stick out too far

One of the most common reasons people seek cosmetic ear surgery is that their ears stick out too far. This type of surgery is sometimes called “ear pinning.” 

Your ears are just too big

You might feel like your ears are just too big. Or maybe your earlobe is too big. Regardless, we can help. 

You’ve worn heavy earrings or gauged your lobes

Everyone’s style evolves with time and you might have some regrets about the choices you made regarding your ears in years past. Don’t worry! Earlobe surgery can likely correct the problem. 

What you should know about otoplasty

Otoplasty is surgery, so you should be aware that all of the risks that accompany any surgery apply. You’ll need to be healthy overall and able to tolerate anesthesia. Dr. Pousti will do a thorough consultation with you before your procedure and review your medical history and current health in detail. 

The length of your surgery depends on what correction you have done. Some changes take longer to achieve than others, but our staff tells you what to expect before your appointment. You’ll most likely go home the same day. 

Following your procedure, you’ll need some time to recover. You’ll have bandages covering your ears and probably have stitches. The length of your recovery also depends on what you had done. More complex procedures may require more recovery time.
