The first thing you need to know about otoplasty or cosmetic ear surgery is that it can be recommended for children as well as adults.
As a matter of fact, the ears are fully grown by the time you attain the ages of 5 or 6. So children aged 5 and 6 are perfect candidates for otoplasty, as are teenagers, young adults, and fully grown adults.
In the case of children, protruding ears can be cause for bullying amongst peer groups. To ease the suffering of children subjected to physical, emotional, mental, and psychological abuse by their peers due to their protruding ears and other congenital ear defects, we readily offer otoplasty cosmetic surgery at our Houston office.
Therefore your ear surgery before and after expectations should see protruding, cupped, and asymmetrical ears rectified to put an end to the bullying while boosting the self-confidence of patients.
We perform ear pinned back surgery to address protruding ears, especially if your ears stick out way too far from your head. For asymmetrical ears, we will reposition the ears to make them proportional, and give balance to your overall facial appearance.
At Premiere Surgical Arts, we also help to reshape overtly large ears through the removal and reshaping of ear cartilage to make them much more proportional in size and shape.
Ultimately, the self-belief and self-esteem of our ear surgery patients will be boosted, and they will be able to attend public social events full of confidence.
Ear Surgery Before And After Treatment Considerations
Our cosmetic ear surgery is usually carried out under I.V sedation or general anesthesia. But before the surgery, you will have a one on one consultation appointment with our resident cosmetic surgeon.
We will discuss your peculiar case dissecting the surgical procedure and ensuring that you are fully aware and in agreement with the ear cosmetic surgery before and after expected results.
Your medical history is thoroughly scrutinized, and our surgeon will check for birth defects in analyzing the severity or otherwise of your ear surgery procedure.
Benefits Of Ear Reshaping Surgery
Earlobe repair is a form of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery where your damaged earlobe is reshaped, and restored to its natural, original shape with little or no sign of surgery.
Damage to your earlobe may be caused by the wearing of heavy set earrings, ear trauma resulting in your earlobe being split, torn, or stretched out of proportion.
An earlobe repair is typically a simple cosmetic surgery procedure requiring very little or no downtime.
What’s more, your repaired earlobe(s) will be smooth and natural looking with re-piercing of the earlobe possible after surgery.
Here’s a summary of the before and after benefits of earlobe repair:
- Torn or split earlobes will be sutured leaving very minimal or virtually no sign of surgical scarring.
- Earlobes that have been elongated or stretched out of proportion can be restored back to their original, natural appearance.
- Previously damaged earlobes will be smoothed out to enable the re-piercing of the earlobes if need be.

Otherwise known as “perichondrial hematoma” or “wrestler’s ear”, cauliflower ears are a deformity that arises from blunt trauma to your auricle.
Blunt trauma causes blood to accumulate within the pinna disrupting the flow of blood to the cartilage. This results in fibrosis and hence cauliflower ears.

Your cosmetic surgeon may perform an ear surgery on the ear cartilage to prop it back up and give it a more natural shape.
