Ear Surgery

The ears are an important part of your overall appearance. Elevare MD offers precision when it comes to giving ears the look and feel that best fit you, restoring self-confidence. There are a variety of reasons for performing cosmetic procedures on the ears.

Chidlhood/young adult – Often children are born with, or develop, ears that are too large, protrude too far from the head or are not shaped correctly.

Injury/wear – An injury/trauma to the ear, or even years of wearing heavy earrings, can damage ear cartilage or lead to earlobes that have been stretched out.

Regardless of the reason, Elevare MD cosmetic ear surgery can fix the problem, rendering a natural, balanced look for both children and adults. For children especially, ear surgery can be a powerful tool to build self-esteem and keep from being teased. If caused by a congenital condition, this procedure may be covered by insurance. It is recommended that ear correction surgery is completed prior to entering elementary school.

The Elevare MD Experience

Dr. Michael DeWolfe is Elevare MD’s Board Certified, fellowship-trained plastic and reconstructive surgeon. He is an expert in customizing the look of each patient’s ears through tiny, hidden incisions that virtually disappear once fully healed, as well as repairing damaged ear lobes and cartilage. Dr. DeWolfe treats both children and adults in need of cosmetic ear surgery.

Most patients typically go home hours after ear surgery. The recovery time varies based on type of procedure, but the Elevare MD team will make sure you have all the recovery resources you need, along with any prescriptions for managing any discomfort you may experience.

Earlobe Repair and Reduction

Whether its genetics, injury or simply years of wearing heavy earrings, earlobes may need to be repaired or reduced for a look that better complements the overall appearance.

Elevare MD can address droopy or damaged earlobes through minimally invasive surgery that removes skin and tissue from the earlobe to create the size and contour the patient desires. We generally perform earlobe repair or reduction under local anesthesia, making for a quick procedure and recovery.
