HOW WE DO IT: TUTORIAL

Correction of protruding ears uses surgical techniques to create or improve the antihelical fold (just inside the rim of the ear) and to reduce enlarged conchal cartilage (the largest and deepest hollow of the external ear).

The procedure typically takes about 60-90 minutes depending on the individual face and certain surgical variables.

There are five basic steps to Ear Reshaping surgery.

Step 1 – Marking

Dr. Alexander will take measurements and make careful marks on your ears prior to beginning the procedure.

Step 2 – The incision

Incisions for otoplasty are generally made on the back surface of the ear. When incisions are necessary on the front of the ear, they are made within its folds to hide them.

Step 3 – Reducing the conchal cartilage

An ellipse of cartilage is removed from behind, and the cartilage is reclosed with permanent sutures.

Step 4 – Creating the fold

The anterior surface of the cartilage is scored with an Alexander Earbrader, allowing it to bend and fold more easily. Internal, non-removable sutures are used to create and secure the newly shaped cartilage in place.

Step 5 - Closing the incisions

External absorbable sutures close the incision behind the ear. A light, compressive dressing is placed around the ears to protect them and decrease swelling.
