Am I candidate for cosmetic ear surgery (otoplasty)?

Children who are good candidates for ear surgery include those who are:

  • Healthy, without a life-threatening illness or untreated chronic ear infections
  • Typically five years of age or older, when a child’s ear cartilage is stable enough for correction
  • Cooperative and follow instructions well
  • Able to communicate their feelings

Teenagers and adults who are good candidates for ear surgery include:

  • Healthy individuals who do not have a life-threatening illness or medical conditions that can impair healing
  • Non-smokers
  • Individuals with a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for ear surgery

How is ear surgery (otoplasty) performed? Cosmetic ear surgery is performed through an incision in the back of the ear that allows the plastic surgeon to remove cartilage until the ear can be bent back toward the head. Permanent stitches may be used to help keep the ear in place.

Another technique involves simply folding the cartilage onto itself to bring the ear closer to the head.

Cosmetic ear surgery is usually an outpatient procedure at Plástica Tijuana Surgery. General anesthesia is recommended for young children. For older children or adults, a local anesthesia with sedation may be used.

Why choose us? If you’re considering cosmetic ear surgery, look for a board-certified plastic or facial plastic surgeon with specialized training and significant experience performing otoplasty procedures. Consider going to a cosmetic surgeon who is affiliated with a major medical center, such as at Hospital Angeles Tijuana. Ask your cosmetic surgeon about credentials, training and how many cosmetic ear surgeries he or she has performed.
