“Dr. Yco has become my sole and trusted surgeon ”

You won’t find anyone who will spend as much time understanding your needs and addressing your concerns. If I could give him and his staff more than 5 stars, I would!

Who Is a Candidate for Cosmetic Ear Surgery?

The ideal candidate for cosmetic ear surgery is an individual seeking to address concerns related to the size, shape, or protrusion of their ears. This procedure is often chosen by those who are dissatisfied with prominent ears or desire a more balanced and proportionate facial appearance. Ideal candidates may include both adults and children, as otoplasty is commonly performed on individuals with protruding or misshapen ears from a young age. Individuals seeking to repair damaged ear tissue, like torn lobes or cauliflower ear, may also find cosmetic ear surgery beneficial. Candidates should be in good overall health and have realistic expectations about the potential results of the surgery. Cosmetic ear surgery can be a transformative solution, offering enhanced confidence and a harmonious facial aesthetic. The best way to determine your candidacy is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Yco.

Cosmetic Ear Surgery Procedure

The specific steps of your cosmetic ear surgery may differ depending on the kind of procedure you are having performed and the issue you wish to correct. In the case of a standard otoplasty, the surgery begins with the administration of anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort throughout the procedure. Once sedated, Dr. Yco makes discreet incisions behind the ears, strategically placed within the natural folds to minimize visible scarring. Depending on the specific concerns, cartilage may be reshaped, reduced, or augmented to achieve the desired contour. The incisions are then closed, and the ears are carefully bandaged to facilitate the healing process. The procedure typically takes a few hours, and patients can anticipate a transformative outcome with restored confidence and an aesthetically pleasing ear contour.

Post-Op Care

Your post-op care and recovery may look different depending on the specific type of ear surgery you had. In each case, Dr. Yco will provide you with post-operative care instructions that should be followed very carefully in order to allow for optimal healing.
