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 can affect your self-confidence, especially during childhood. Ear reshaping surgery (also known as otoplasty) is a cosmetic treatment that can assist in redefining the size and shape of the ears to create a pleasing look. Dr. David G. Genecov, Dr. Carlos Raul Barceló and Dr. Huay-Zong Law are talented plastic surgeons who have assisted countless adults and children to overcome the fear of showing off their ears by having this life-changing facial surgery. Regardless of the deformity, ear surgery allows an individual to display their face with a newfound confidence. To learn more about cosmetic ear surgery, call Genecov Plastic Surgery Group in Dallas, TX.
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 treatment is safe to be performed on a child. If you are self-conscious 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 had pharyngeal flap surgery made by Dr. Genecov. I'm 32 years old and had been having hypernasal speech for the whole life - I was born with a cleft palate and had not the best surgery when I was a child. Even though it wasn't an easy task to fix it on an adult, Dr. Genecov did a great job, I already sound and feel better. His office staff is nice and professional, he treats his patients with care and kindness. I had to go to Dallas TX to have all of this done, but it did pay off.Highly recom"- V. / Healthgrades / Oct 26, 2018

"We have seen Dr Genecov probably for 8-9 years now, since we moved to Texas. You can truly see how much he cares about his patients, not once have I felt rushed or like he didn’t want to listen to my concerns. Dr Genecov and his crew are the best of THE BEST!"- W.S. / Facebook / Jul 14, 2020
"I LOVE DR. BARCELO! HE IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST! He is very knowledgeable and listens to your concerns/what you are trying to achieve with your visit. He is very realistic and conservative when it comes to injectables, and I have never been unhappy with any of my results! He has been doing my botox for years, and I never have a wrinkle afterwards. He also just did my lips for the first time, I was very nervous as we have all seen women who definitely went overboard. He achieved exactly what I was hoping for and I could not be happier! It is not even noticeable to those who don't know me, but it has made a huge difference for me! I can finally wear lipstick and it not be all over my face, lol. I would definitely recommend him to anyone considering anything in his scope of practice! I live in Austin, and go see him when I come back to Dallas to see my family. I have also never had any difficulty getting an appointment, even the day of sometimes! HE IS THE BEST! Go see him!"- A.S. / Yelp / Mar 02, 2020
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 normal for both ears to be touched during surgery 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. We will provide a healing protocol with detailed instructions. It is important not to touch your ears for the first few days post-surgery. Furthermore, patients are encouraged to sleep in an upright position for the next several nights to avoid laying on their ears. We will ask to see our ear surgery patients back within the first week — during this time, we’ll remove the bandages and assess the surgical incisions. The results are noticeable almost immediately and the effects from surgery will continue to improve as you heal.
