What is Ear Surgery?

Ear surgery, otherwise known as otoplasty, is a surgical procedure aimed at reshaping the ears to achieve a more harmonious and balanced appearance. Often performed on children, otoplasty addresses common concerns such as prominent, protruding, or asymmetrical ears. By repositioning the ears closer to the head, this procedure enhances facial symmetry, reduces social discomfort, and boosts self-confidence. 

When carried out by experienced board-certified plastic surgeons like Drs. Burton and Reps Sundin, otoplasty is a safe and effective cosmetic surgery. They create customized treatment plans that meet their patients' individual goals, ensuring natural-looking results and an improved appearance.

Who is an ideal candidate for ear surgery?

In contrast to many plastic surgery procedures, ear surgery is often performed on children as young as four years old. It's crucial to address these issues at an early age to prevent potential teasing and emotional distress from peers. That said, ear surgery is also a viable option for adult patients and comes with little-to-no risks.

If you're considering ear surgery with Dr. Burton or Dr. Reps Sundin, you may be an ideal candidate for ear surgery in Richmond if you're looking to address:

  • Stretched lobes
  • Torn lobes
  • Trauma or injury
  • Large ears
  • Asymmetry

What to expect from the results

In most cases, individuals who undergo otoplasty surgery express a high level of satisfaction with their outcomes. The primary objective of ear surgery in Tysons Corner is to enhance each patient's inherent natural beauty rather than striving for perfection, leaving them with a naturally balanced and attractive appearance. This underscores the vital importance of open and candid communication during the consultation. 

With their specialized training, Doctors Burton and Reps Sundin take the time to understand your specific objectives and develop a tailored treatment plan that can attain your desired results. Their unique blend of technical expertise and artistic sensibility ensures results that exude a naturalistic appeal, instilling you with confidence and empowerment.

Are there any risks?

Ear surgery is a frequently performed procedure that, when undertaken by a certified plastic surgeon, typically has a low risk of complications.

Nevertheless, as with any elective surgery, some potential risks must be taken into account when making decisions, whether for yourself or your child.

While rare, a few patients may experience the formation of a minor blood clot within the ear following the surgery. This condition is generally managed by removing the blood clot using a needle. Additionally, there is a slight possibility of developing an infection within the ear's cartilage, potentially leading to scar tissue. In such instances, antibiotics are prescribed, promptly resolving the issue.
