Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
The procedure, often performed under local anesthesia, is performed to “set back” the ears and recreate the natural folds and creases seen in a completely developed ear. Dr. Newman utilizes a variety of techniques to reshape the ear cartilage. Dr. Newman operates on children beginning at age 6 so that the ear has reached maturity from its growth phase. The incision is located behind the ear so that there is no visible scar. There is no need for suture removal, which parents and children appreciate because of the special technique that Dr. Newman performs. A headband is mandatory for one week following surgery. Discomfort is brief and controlled with Tylenol. Adults undergoing this surgery can expect the same as our younger patients.
