Ear Surgery Houston
Ear surgery (aka Otoplasty) is used to address often congenital (present at birth) differences in ear size, appearance, or position that patients often find disturbing. Ear trauma or deformities from ear piercing can also be corrected. Surgery can offer a permanent correction to ear irregularities.
The procedures performed depend on the severity of the correction, and often can be conducted under sedation. Scars are often hidden. Patients commonly experience discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Patients typically can return to work after 1 week.
Additional surgical risks will be discussed in consultation.
Please schedule a consultation with Dr. Carpin to discuss if you are a surgical candidate, and to review the risks, benefits, alternatives, and expected outcomes of the procedure.
