Ear Surgery

Has your child ever walked in door, crying about being teased for his ears? It can be heartbreaking for you as a parent, as well as your child. To help them feel more normal, ear surgery (or otoplasty) can easily be performed on children ages 4-14 to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. The earlier the surgery, the less teasing your child will experience.

Although less common, ear surgery can also be performed on adults. Otoplasty procedures are performed by Board-certified Woodglen surgeons at the state of the art Glendora Surgery Center, conveniently located on Route 66 in the city of Glendora. This facility is fully accredited as an outpatient surgery center.

The Surgery Ear surgery usually takes about two or three hours, depending on the technique used by the surgeon. Basically, the ear cartilage is sculpted and bent back toward the head. Non-removable stitches may be used to help keep the new shape. Only a faint scar will be left on the back of ear that will fade with time.

Following Your Procedure Following surgery, your child's head will be wrapped in a bandage to promote healing, as recovery begins in comfort at the Center for a few hours until it is time to be released home. You will receive clear instructions about how to care for your child's ears and what to expect over a period of weeks. The ears may throb or ache a little for a few days but can be controlled with medication. Within just a few days, the bandages are removed and replaced with a lightweight headband dressing. All activity during which the ear could be bent should be avoided for one month. Children may return to school within one week, and adults may return to work about five days after surgery.

Your Child's New Look Most parents and their children are very happy with the results of ear surgery. Remember, it's still your child ... just better!
