The Otoplasty Surgery
With one of the more common techniques, Newport Beach otoplasty specialist Dr. Lawton will make a small incision in the back of the ear to expose the ear cartilage. She will then sculpt the cartilage and bend it back toward the head. Nonremovable stitches may be used to help maintain the new shape. Occasionally, ear surgeons like Dr. Lawtonwill remove a larger piece of cartilage to provide a more natural-looking fold and finished profile.
Ear surgery usually takes about 2 to 3 hours, although complicated or complex procedures may take longer. The technique Dr. Lawton chooses during an ear tuck procedure will depend on the problem and the individual’s features. Otoplasty procedures are routinely performed in the Newport Beach otoplasty specialist and plastic surgeon’s outpatient surgery suite in Orange County.
