Otoplasty (Ear Surgery) in New Jersey
The ears are highly complex and unique features, and they contribute greatly to a person’s overall appearance. At The Peer Group for Plastic Surgery, we offer ear surgery to the residents of Morristown and Livingston, NJ, to help patients address any ear-related concerns they may have.
What is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty, also known as ear surgery, is a procedure performed to address the shape, size and position of the ears. Due to their position on the head, the ears are susceptible to many injuries, birth defects and other conditions. The otoplasty procedure can correct these concerns, enhancing the balance of the face and complementing the overall appearance. The Peer Group specializes in many ear surgery techniques, including:
- Ear tube surgery
- Elf ear surgery
- Ear lobe surgery
- And more
With these techniques, we are able to help patients of all ages achieve their cosmetic goals.
How Much Does an Otoplasty Cost?
The average cost of an otoplasty starts at $8,000. The exact cost of treatment will vary depending on your unique treatment goals and the specific approach we take to treatment. During your initial consultation, we thoroughly discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the otoplasty technique that is best for you. Once we develop a customized treatment plan, we will be able to inform you of the exact cost of treatment. You can learn more about the cost of your treatment and your payment options by visiting our financing page.
What is the Otoplasty Procedure Like?
The otoplasty surgery will vary depending on your treatment goals and the treatment plan we develop during your consultation. Treatments begin with delivering anesthesia, ensuring you remain safe and comfortable throughout the procedure. For the otoplasty procedure, incisions are usually made within the natural contours of the ears, where they are well-concealed. Cartilage is then repositioned or otherwise manipulated to produce the desired shape and position of the ears. Similar techniques can be used to restore the ears after injuries or related conditions. After these steps are complete, the incisions are sealed and the treatment is complete.
What is the Otoplasty Recovery Like?
The recovery process for ear surgery will vary depending on the extent of treatment performed. Most patients experience swelling, bruising and discomfort for a few weeks after their treatment. You may need to take time away from work and other activities in order to rest and heal following your surgery. In addition, we recommend patients abstain from sports and other activities that put the ears at risk for injury during the healing process.
What Results Can I Expect from Otoplasty?
The results from your otoplasty surgery are visible soon after treatment, and will be permanent. Keep in mind it can take a few months for the ears to fully settle into their new position.
