Do your large ears make you feel self-conscious about your appearance? If so, Dr. Ryser and Dr. Shamo can help you with otoplasty in Taylorsville, Utah, which is also known as cosmetic ear revision. This treatment can improve the appearance of your ears no matter your age or situation. That’s right—otoplasty can even help children.
Before you begin treatment, Dr. Ryser or Dr. Shamo will give you local anesthesia to help you feel comfortable in our warm and high-tech clinic. When you’re ready, your surgeon will make an incision in the fold where the ear is attached to the head. Then Dr. Ryser or Dr. Shamo will reshape or remove the cartilage until the ear is in the most desired position possible. The cartilage will be held in place with stitches.
It’s normal to feel discomfort after the treatment. To help you, your doctor will apply soft bandages and dressings to the area to protect your ears. You will need to wear them for several days. It’s also recommended to avoid sleeping on your side for about seven days. Other post-operation details will be given to you during your appointment at Aspire Surgical.
If you have any questions about otoplasty or if you would like to see if this treatment is right for you, we encourage you to call our office at 801-261-2444. We are excited to help you feel comfortable and confident in your appearance!
