About Cosmetic Ear Surgery
Ears that protrude outward, are misshapen and uneven, or are noticeably unnaturally big, can cause embarrassment and can challenge your self-confidence, especially when young. Otoplasty (ear reshaping) is a cosmetic treatment that can assist in recontouring the size, position, and shape of the ears and form a normal look. Dr. Phi P. Nguyen is a Houston, TX plastic surgeon who has assisted countless women, men, and children to overcome the embarrassment of showing their ears by undergoing this life-changing facial surgery. Regardless of the cosmetic issue, ear surgery allows a patient to proudly show their face at anytime with a newfound confidence and reassurance.
Ear reshaping surgery can be done on a patient at any stage in life; however, it is often most common among young children and is suggested before the start of elementary school. By age 6, this cosmetic surgery is safe to be performed on a child. If you find yourself displeased by the shape and size of your ears because they are misshapen or protrude outward, otoplasty can be considered to attain a natural-looking appearance. If you suffer from a torn, stretched, or damaged earlobe, you are also a candidate for otoplasty.

"Dr. Phi is amazing. The whole team was very professional and attentive throughout the whole process from start to finish. They are very personable and make you feel comfortable and safe. I Can say that I am very happy with my results and I’m only 3 months post op. Surgery has risks and it can be scary but they will hold your hand through the whole process which is so important. The first few days after surgery were the toughest but the team constantly checked up on me whether it was calls or txts.

Plan Your Procedure
Ear reshaping surgery is completed using anesthesia, either general or IV sedation. Most often, the incision is made around the back portion of the ear or inside the inner folds. During surgery, cartilage will be manipulated to create a new contour and appearance. It's generally common for both ears to be addressed during treatment to ensure they look and appear symmetrical. After the procedure, the incisions are safely stitched together with sutures and are wrapped so they are safeguarded for healing.
What to Expect
Once your surgery is over and it is safe to leave the outpatient surgery center, you will heal and rest at home. We'll send you home with healing protocol. It is important not to touch or scratch your ears. Also, patients should avoid laying on them, instead sleeping propped up for the initial first few days. We recommend seeing our ear surgery patients back within 3 – 5 days — during this time, we’ll take off the coverings and assess your ears. The outcomes are visible almost immediately and the progression of results will continue to become visibly appealing as you heal.
Show Your Face From All Angles
