Ear Surgery With a Facial Plastic Surgery Specialist

Dr. Gross performs otoplasty through crescent-shaped incisions hidden behind the ears. Dr. Gross uses the Mustardé and Furnas techniques to reshape and reposition the ears for natural results. He uses dissolving sutures, so there are no stitches to remove.

Frequent handling of otoplasty cases is critical for successful outcomes. Dr. Gross' many years of experience with otoplasty and his eye for aesthetic balance have provided him with the skill required for these complex yet elegant techniques.

Some Orlando patients may choose to combine ear surgery with other facial procedures such as a facelift or rhinoplasty.

Before the procedure, Dr. Gross uses computer imaging to give patients a preview of what they might look like after ear surgery.

"Otoplasty is an especially rewarding aspect of facial plastic surgery. Its low risk of side effects, combined with the quick recovery process, makes it a popular choice for our patients."

– Dr. Gross

Otoplasty Cost

At Primera Plastic Surgery near Orlando, the cost of most otoplasty procedures typically ranges from $4,000 to $7,000, although outliers on the high or low end of the spectrum are always possible. We offer financing through CareCredit® for qualified patients.

A Smooth Recovery

Usually performed under general anesthesia, this outpatient procedure lasts 1½ to 2 hours and is generally tolerated well. Patients rarely experience more than mild discomfort, which Dr. Gross treats with a long-lasting anesthetic. Temporary bruising and swelling are common side effects.

Patients wear a head dressing for the first 2 days after a surgery and an athletic-style headband continuously for a week and while sleeping for the first 2 weeks. The headband protects the ears and ensures a smooth result.

Most otoplasty patients can resume work or school in 7 days, noncontact sports in 2 weeks, and contact sports in 2 months.

"A natural appearance of the ears is essential for patient satisfaction."
