Restore Facial Symmetry

Do you desire evenly balanced or more attractive ears? You are not alone. For many, prominent ears can be a source of insecurity or bullying, especially in children. Over time, this can lead to decreased self-image. Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a popular low-risk surgery that can transform the way you look from the neck up. Otoplasty is safe and quick, and results are permanent.

What is Otoplasty?

Otoplasty is the surgical correction of prominent, asymmetrical, or malformed ears. Double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Philip K. Robb uses subtle, advanced techniques to gently shape the ear to better align with the face and head. For adults, otoplasty in Atlanta is done under local anesthesia and takes no more than an hour.

What Happens During The Procedure?

After a comprehensive and free consultation, Dr. Robb determines if an otoplasty is right for you before anything is scheduled. On the day of the procedure, Dr. Robb makes a tiny incision either behind or in front of the ear to reposition and manipulate the cartilage. Once finished, he closes the incision with sutures. Otoplasties do not affect a patient’s hearing.

Are You A Good Candidate for Otoplasty in Atlanta?

If you feel embarrassed or self-conscious about your ears because of a congenital defect or past injury, otoplasty can help. This procedure is appropriate for adults and kids older than six. Below are some common reasons patients pursue Otoplasties:

  • Overly prominent ears
  • ear lacking folds and normal anatomy
  • ears interfering with social interaction

What Is Recovery Like?

Patients normally need one to two weeks to recover fully from an otoplasty, though most can resume light activity and office work after a week or so. Dr. Robb will create a personalized recovery plan for you and personally monitor your healing progress. Prescription pain management medication is often needed for the first few days after surgery and can be replaced by over-the-counter medication when indicated by Dr. Robb.

Straight From A Happy Patient

“Dr. Robb performed surgery to pin my ears back about 6 weeks ago. I now have beautiful, symmetrical ears that I am no longer afraid to show off! The entire process was seamless and stress-free. From my initial consult to my final follow-up, the staff here treated me like royalty. 

They were responsive, knowledgeable, attentive, and caring every step of the way. They followed up post-surgery to ensure I was healing properly with no complications and continued to check in until I was healed. Dr. Robb and the staff truly are a one-of-a-kind experience that I would 10/10 recommend every day.” - S.A.
