Reshape, Refine, and Enjoy Your Ears

Ear differences or deformities can be a major cause for embarrassment or low self-confidence, especially in children. If you are someone who struggles with aesthetic ear concerns, you understand that constantly wearing your hair a certain way or hiding under a hat can be difficult and bothersome. With ear surgery or Otoplasty Pearl River patients can shape their ears to provide harmony and compliment their face.

What is Otoplasty?

At our office in Pearl River Otoplasty or ear surgery is a broad name for a procedure that changes the appearance of the ears but can be performed for a variety of reasons. Otoplasty may be performed due to ears that stick out, a procedure often referred to as ear pinning. Other reasons for the procedure include congenital deformities, correcting the placement of the ear fold, or reducing the size of the ears. In most cases, a plastic surgeon will manipulate the skin, cartilage, and tissue to form and sculpt the ear into a more ideal or proportionate size and shape.


What can Otoplasty do for me?

Refining or repairing the ears to create a more standard appearance can offer a huge boost of confidence for those who struggle with the look of their ears. Some highly positive benefits of Otoplasty include:

  • Achieve proportion, balance, and symmetry
  • Complement the look of facial features
  • Correct congenital irregularities
  • Permanently repair the ears
  • Minimal or nearly invisible scarring
  • Outpatient procedure

Am I a candidate for Otoplasty?

Anyone who has an aesthetic ear concern and would like a permanent surgical repair is likely to be a suitable candidate for this type of surgery. Ideal Otoplasty candidates are typically in good health overall, do not smoke, and have realistic expectations for the results of the procedure. The patient’s ears must be fully developed, which typically occurs around age 5. Those with diabetes, inflammatory ear disease, or bleeding disorders may not be ideal candidates for this procedure.

Consultation and Preparation

At your complimentary otoplasty consultation in Bergen County, NJ and Pearl River, NY, we will discuss your particular aesthetic goals along with your health history to determine if this procedure is right for you. Our goal is always to keep patients fully informed throughout the process so we can make a great decision together. If we decide this surgery is optimal, we will provide you with full details on preparation and what to expect post-surgery.


Otoplasty is performed as an outpatient procedure using either local or general anesthesia. The procedure will vary depending on the patient’s needs, but typically, discreet incisions are made behind the ear, adjustments are made, excess skin may be removed, and then the area is sutured. Most ear surgeries take around an hour to complete.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Recovery from Otoplasty is relatively easy, but you will want to rest for a few days and be sure to follow all the guidelines provided by your surgeon. After about a week, you should be able to resume most normal activities, but we recommend avoiding contact sports for as long as three months in some cases. Final results should be visible in around six weeks.
