What type of ear surgery incisions are there?
The location of your incisions for ear surgery will depend largely on what changes you wish to make. However, surgeons typically make incisions in inconspicuous locations, either in the back of your ear, where it connects to the head or within the inner folds of your ear.
There are a few methods for ear surgery.
Your surgeon can create an incision and use permanent sutures to move your ear to the desired position, or they may scrape the cartilage to contour it to your desired size or shape.
Your surgeon will create an incision behind the ear and remove extra cartilage or soft tissue that makes the ear protrude too much.
Many times, surgeons use a combination of both techniques to get your desired result.
Will I have any ear surgery scars?
Otoplasty scars are usually hidden behind the ears, making the scarring less visible to others.
