Cosmetic ear surgery, or otoplasty, for men, might be used to address several different problems. Ears that stick out too far, are very large or very small, are not symmetrical or are misshapen, all can be corrected through otoplasty. There are a range of surgical techniques Dr. Yarish at Yarish Plastic Surgery can use to help reshape the ears in a more attractive way or for a different desired appearance, based on the level and type of correction needed. Many men who consider otoplasty find that their appearance is more pleasing, and their self-confidence is boosted.

When To Consider It
Yarish Plastic Surgery performs cosmetic ear surgery for men, or for children and teenagers, who struggle with the look or shape of their ears due to genetics, accident, or injury. Otoplasty can help those who have very large, protruding or uneven ears. Besides improving outward appearance, patients, especially younger ones, also see an increase in self-confidence, often now feeling the freedom to change their hairstyle or other fashion choices.
We can consult with you at our Houston or Lake Jackson offices to discuss whether you’d be a good candidate for otoplasty.
What to Expect During Otoplasty
Ear surgery is an outpatient procedure, using regional or local anesthesia. Most of the time, incisions are small and hidden just behind the ear, for minimal visible scarring after surgery. If incisions inside the ear are required, they can be hidden along the lines and folds of the ear.
The techniques we use depend on your specific goals. Ears that stick out quite far might be pinned closer to the head through surgery, while misshapen or uneven ears might be manipulated and reshaped through alteration of the cartilage or tissues of the ear for a better cosmetic look.
What Happens Afterward
Pressure dressings usually restrict the ear’s new shape into place for some time after otoplasty surgery. This helps the ear heal into its new look and placement and ensures scarring is kept to a minimum. Some slight pain and bruising often occurs and will be managed through post-operative care.
It’s important to avoid yanking or pulling at the ears during the healing process, as this can undo the surgical work before it’s fully healed, so in many cases, bandages or headwraps will be recommended for wear during sleep during this time. Activity such as recreational sports may also be cautioned against.
Patients can expect a full recovery within a few weeks, with a noticeably different ear shape, and over the course of several months, the new shape of their ears will become permanent.
