About Cosmetic Ear Surgery
Ears that stick outward and protrude, are misshapen and uneven, or are visibly too large, can have a negative impact and affect your self-confidence, especially as a child. Ear reshaping surgery (also known as otoplasty) is a cosmetic treatment that can assist in redefining the size and shape of the ears and create a pleasing look. In addition, board-certified plastic surgeons Drs. Thornwell Parker and Kevin Hanz can employ otoplasty to address torn earlobes, completing the procedure with a new piercing after healing is complete. Our Elevate Medical Spa and Cosmetic Surgery team in Dallas, TX helps individuals to overcome the fear of showing their ears by having this life-changing facial surgery. Regardless of the deformity, ear surgery allows one to display their face without hiding with self-assurance.
Ear surgery can be done on a patient at any age after 6. If you feel embarrassed by the appearance of your ears because they stick out or are too large, otoplasty may be the ideal surgery attain a natural-looking appearance. If you suffer from a damaged earlobe, you are also a candidate for otoplasty.

"This review is well overdue, but now you can be certain I am certain of my results! My skin wasn't horrid, but as it turns out, it needed work. I would get the usual lady cycle breakouts (even at 31) and the occasional pimple here and there. It would take 2-3 weeks to clear up. Who has time for that?! And then I was introduced to Felicia. Felicia put me on a ZO regimen in July. It took about a month for my skin texture to change. I did not even know that was a thing! My skin texture was smoother, brighter, and tighter! The compliments were rolling in!Fast forward to 6-7 months in, and if I may be self indulgent, am in love with my face. I always secretly wanted to be able to walk out of the house with no makeup (always sunscreen!) and look fantastic. With Felicia's guidance, I have been able to achieve that goal. My makeup consists of a tube of mascara, as I am confident enough not to hide behind foundation, CC cream, etc. It wasn't an overnight change, there are days where my face is itchy, there have been series of days of constant peeling and redness. However, I stuck with it, Felicia was a constant support, and I am so thankful I did."- R.B. / Yelp / Mar 13, 2018
"One of the most talented plastic surgeons. Dr Hanz is truly a miracle worker. Cosmetic surgery skills are amazing. He recently performed a very difficult hand surgery for my father in law. Amazing results. Highly recommend."- S.L. / Facebook / Feb 22, 2018

"Breast Implant Removal and Liposuction - The staff at Elevate was amazing from scheduling my consultation down to the actual procedure. I had two separate procedures performed by Dr. Hanz the first one being a breast implant removal and the second one was liposuction. Dr. Hanz and his staff were very helpful in answering all of my questions and concerns. My continued care after the procedures has been substantial as well. I would highly recommend Dr. Hanz and his staff for any of your cosmetic needs."- H. / RealSelf / Jan 30, 2018
Cosmetic ear surgery is completed using a form of local anesthesia or IV sedation. In most cases, the incision is made near the back of the ear or inside the inner ear folds. During surgery, cartilage may be removed or added to create a more natural appearance. It is usual for both ears to be altered during otoplasty to ensure they look and appear balanced. Once the ears are surgically corrected, the incisions are closed with sutures and are bandaged so they can remain safeguarded for healing.
What to Expect
When surgery is over and it is safe to leave the outpatient surgery center, you will rest and recover at home. We will give healing protocol. It is important not to touch, pick at, or scratch your ears. Furthermore, patients should avoid laying on them, instead sleeping in an upright position for the first several days. We will ask to see our ear surgery patients back within the first week — during this time, we’ll remove the bandages and look at your ears. Natural-looking ears are noticeable almost immediately and the results will continue to improve as you heal.
