Crafting Your Ideal Look with Dr. Repta

Dr. Repta has performed hundreds of ear shaping surgeries with excellent results and very satisfied patients. Having delivered some of the best ear shaping surgery Scottsdale has to offer, Dr. Repta looks forward to meeting with you and helping you achieve the look you’ve always wanted.

A Description of the Procedure

Most ear shaping procedures use an incision behind the ear to gain access to the ear cartilage. On occasion an incision on the front side of the ear may also be needed. Regardless, the incisions are hidden and essentially invisible once healed. Excess soft tissue or cartilage causing the ear to “stick out too much” can be removed or shaped if needed. Additionally, if normal creases or folds are missing from the ear, they can be re-constructed by reshaping the cartilage and maintain that shape with internal sutures. Sometimes a combination of techniques will be employed to achieve the exact desired result.

Functional & Aesthetic Benefits

By doing a thorough evaluation, Dr. Repta will determine the most effective surgical route tailored to your exact needs and desires, resulting in functioning and aesthetically pleasing ears. Additionally, this procedure can be performed on virtually any patient of any age as long as the ears are fully grown, which often takes place around the age of five years old.

Ear shaping surgery is one of the most common cosmetic procedures for children ages five to fourteen and is considered safe and reliable with long term positive results that can improve the self image of the individual child.

Recovery & Healing Time

Immediately following ear surgery, you will have a special bandage carefully placed around your ears holding them in their new position. It is not uncommon for patients to experience moderate swelling and bruising following ear surgery, so it is advised to avoid any vigorous activity for the first week. It is also recommended for patients to sit in a reclined position, keeping the head elevated so as to minimize swelling.

Although recovery is different patient to patient, you can typically return to work and routine activities about one week post-surgery. Full exercise may require waiting about 4 weeks and the timing will be guided by Dr. Repta.
