Ear Surgery Otoplasty in New Jersey

You are a candidate for ear plastic surgery if you have:

  • Overly large ears known as macrotia
  • Protruding ear on one or both sides to varying degrees that does not cause hearing loss
  • Ear asymmetry
  • Injury resulting in misshapen ears
  • A birth defect affecting your ear structure
  • Dissatisfaction with a previous ear surgery

How is otoplasty performed? Are there any risks?

New Jersey cosmetic surgeon Dr. Ganchi will perform your ear surgery using techniques that create or increase the fold on the inside rim of your ear and that reduce the enlarged concavity of your external ear. Double board certified Dr. Ganchi usually makes otoplasty incisions in the back of the ear. If your specific case requires Dr. Ganchi to make an incision in the front of your ear, he will take great care to hide it within your natural folds. He then uses internal, permanent sutures to secure the newly shaped cartilage.

As with any surgery there are associated risks. With thorough planning and preparation, we will guide you through this experience to achieve the best results with few unexpected problems.

How will I look after ear surgery?

Otoplasty with New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Ganchi is a safe and effective procedure that can enhance your confidence by freeing you from the emotional burden of protruding or deformed ears. You or your child will no longer be teased for your ears. Instead, your ears will have a natural, balanced shape and proportion. Ear surgery creates a natural shape, while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face.

Imagine a more beautiful you.
