Over-sized or unusually-shaped ears can be a source of self-consciousness for many people. This is something that is especially hard on younger children and teens as they are teased for misshaped ears. With one or more common techniques, Dr. Roche can correct this condition making the ears appear more average. During otoplasty surgery, Dr. Roche makes a small incision in the back of the ear to expose the ear cartilage. He is then able to sculpt the cartilage and bend it back toward the head. This surgery is now more effective than ever with the latest advancements in Fat Transfer, advanced Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP), and Stem Cells increasing healing time and over-all surgery success.
Occasionally, Dr. Roche will remove a larger piece of cartilage to provide a more natural-looking fold when the surgery is complete. In most cases, ear surgery will leave a faint scar in the back of the ear that will fade with time.
Dr. Roche can also perform earlobe repair from torn ear piercing or gauge wearing as a cosmetic surgery or ear rejuvenation which is a cosmetic procedure to reduce the size of the lobes. Laser resurfacing to create smooth ear lobes and fat transfer for plumping up your ear lobes can give ears a rejuvenated look.
