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 surgeon Dr. Thornwell Parker 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.

"Love this place for Botox, dysport and IPL photofacialS. Tori is the best, she listens to what you want and explains everything and I have been very happy with the results of my treatments since my girlfriend referred her to me several months ago. The friends I have sent have also been happy with their results."- K.H. / Yelp / Sep 17, 2018
"Can't say enough about how professional and comfortable this Med Spa is in comparison to some of the other popular locations in town (which I've tried). Elevate feels less like a cattle call and more like a one on one experience. Suzanne is phenomenal for brows and facials- very kind and has your best interests at heart. I've seen Tori as well for photo facials and a few other minor treatments. Both are kind, very informed and the office is efficiently run. Avoid all the other Med spas that advertise like crazy. This place is sophisticated yet comfortable. Employees have a high attention to detail and it is very competitive when it comes to pricing."- T.S. / Yelp / Aug 28, 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.
