Cosmetic Ear Surgery in Indianapolis, IN

Are You A Candidate For Ear Shaping?

While the ears aren’t technically part of the facial structure, they still contribute to how the face is framed. If the ears are too large, protruding, or otherwise misshapen, they can detract significantly from one’s appearance. The cause of large or protruding ears is usually due to excessive cartilage, or the way the cartilage is shaped.

Otoplasty is the procedure to modify the appearance of the external ear, especially the protruding ear. Dr. Greg Chernoff's advises his patients that otoplasty improves the shape, position and proportion of the ears.

How Is Otoplasty Performed?

The incision for otoplasty is in the back of the ear to reposition and remove excess cartilage. Dr. Chernoff performs a gentle and comfortable otoplasty to make sure children and patients are completely at ease before, during, and after the procedure. Special cases of patients born without external ears (Microtia) or badly deformed ears (Lop) can be effectively treated as well.

Patients can expect some swelling and bruising of the ears after the surgery which subsides within a few days along with mild discomfort. The swelling subsides within the first few days, and the bruising takes a few weeks. Significant pain is rare and medication can control any discomfort.

Preparing for Surgery

Prior to any surgical procedure, Dr. Chernoff recommends that all our patients read our "Patient Guide for Plastic Surgery". The guide explains important points that all patients should think about as they are considering a surgical procedure.
