About Cosmetic Ear Surgery
Ears that stick outwards and protrude, are misshapen and uneven, or are visibly too large, can have a negative impact and affect your self-confidence, especially during the impressionable childhood years. Ear reshaping surgery (also known as otoplasty), is a cosmetic procedure that can assist in redefining the size and shape of the ears and create a pleasing look. Dr. Anthony Nikko, is a Houston, TX Cosmetic Surgeon who has assisted countless adults and children to overcome the fear of showing their ears by having this life-changing facial surgery. Regardless of the deformity, ear surgery allows someone to display their face without hiding their self-assurance. Visit us at the Nikko Cosmetic Surgery Center to learn more.
Ear surgery can be done on a patient at any age, however, it is extremely common among young children and is suggested before reaching elementary school. By age 6, this procedure is safe and effective to be performed on a child. If you are frustrated by the appearance of your ears because they stick out or are too large, otoplasty may be the ideal surgery to attain a natural-looking appearance. If you suffer from a damaged earlobe, you are also a candidate for otoplasty.

"I alwayssss recommend Dr. Nikko when friends are looking for a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon. My family has been coming to Dr. Nikko for a couple years now. His staff is always so sweet and helpful in answering the millions of questions I always ask! And Dr. Nikko so personable. He is one of the few doctors I’ve ever met that asks about how myself and the kids are doing every single time I see him; I feel he genuinely cares for my family. He never makes you feel like you are just another number or rushed to get you out the door. My husband and kids will continue to see him as needed!"- A.A. / Google / Aug 09, 2019

Cosmetic ear surgery is completed using a form of anesthesia. 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 touched during the procedure 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
Following treatment, it is safe to leave the outpatient surgery center so you can rest and recover at home. However, we will provide a detailed healing protocol for you to follow. During this time, it is also important not to pick at or touch your ears. Furthermore, patients should avoid laying on them during sleep and should instead sleep in an upright position for the first several days. We will ask to see our ear surgery patients back within the first week and during this time, we’ll remove the bandages and review your incisions. The results are noticeable almost immediately and the effects from surgery will continue to improve as you heal.
