Just as with any other type of cosmetic procedure, your otoplasty journey will start with an in-depth consultation. Dr. Sood will discuss your specific goals and needs with you, while also explaining what you can expect from the procedure and recovery.
The duration of the otoplasty itself will depend on the complexity and specifics of the procedure. You will receive either local anesthesia or be sedated, and then an incision will be made. The tissue of the ear will be manipulated or reshaped, after which the incisions are closed.
Reconstructive otoplasty also varies from person to person, with earlobe repair taking less time than a more involved rebuilding of ears that have been damaged by trauma.
Following ear surgery, you will have dressings or bandages placed on your ears, and you may need to have stitches removed later. When it comes to achieving optimal results, your recovery will be just as important as the procedure itself. Dr. Sood and his team will provide aftercare support and guide you through each stage of recovery so you can enjoy the best results possible.
