Otoplasty for Men

For some men, the ears can cause self-consciousness if they are large or protruding. If it’s present at birth, young boys are often made fun of because of their ears. If you’re looking for effective ways to reduce the size, shape, or projection of your ears, then Dr. DiFrancesco can help.

What is Otoplasty?

Otoplasty is sometimes called ear surgery or ear ‘pinning’. During this procedure, the ears can be reduced and brought closer to the head. It can also be used to correct deformities or injuries that affect the ears. Often, it results in a high satisfaction rate once the ears are brought into better harmony with the rest of the face.

Candidates for Otoplasty

Men who benefit most from ear surgery are those who are self-conscious about their ears and are able to undergo surgery. Dr. DiFrancesco will discuss your health history and determine the right surgical plan for your goals and anatomy. It’s important that your ears be no longer developing or changing so that you can enjoy your results for the long term.

Otoplasty Procedure

Otoplasty can be performed with local anesthesia and sedation at our Atlanta office. During the procedure, an incision is performed in the natural folds at the back of the ear so that cartilage can be reduced. Then, the ears are brought closer to the head before the incisions are closed. Afterward, you can return home.

Otoplasty Recovery

Initial recovery from ear surgery takes one or two days, after which you can return to work and social engagements. During the first few days, it’s important not to touch or disturb the bandages which will help support your ears as they heal. Dr. DiFrancesco will provide aftercare instructions on how to sleep and manage discomfort. Your sutures will dissolve after a few weeks, and you can return to your exercise regimen within four to six weeks. Although your ears can still change as time goes on, many men enjoy long term results with ear surgery.
