Preparing for Ear Reshaping

Your Preparation

Before your procedure, Dr. Raffi Hovsepian and his highly experienced aesthetic team will meet with you to make sure you understand your procedure and recovery process thoroughly, and to answer any questions you may have. Education, safety, and privacy are our goals, and we’ll work closely with you to make sure we’ve talked you through everything you need to know about your procedure so that you can be as comfortable as possible.

On the Day

You’ll need to begin fasting about eight hours prior to your procedure, which means you cannot eat or drink anything at all during this period, including chewing gum or drinking water.

If Dr. Hovsepian has instructed you to take any medications in the morning, this is permitted with a few sips of water. We’ll thoroughly talk through any preparations that might be necessary.

Your Otoplasty Procedure

Otoplasty is a relatively simple procedure but requires a keen aesthetic eye and an advanced level of surgical precision. Raffi Hovsepian, M.D., focuses on results that balance well and create the perfect sense of symmetry with your features.

Ear reshaping typically involves one small incision behind the ear, through which Dr. Hovsepian will gently reposition the cartilage of the ear. After healing, the ear will sit at a more natural, less noticeable angle.

Ear surgery is performed under general anesthesia, and generally takes several hours. You should expect to spend extra time in the operating room if your procedure focuses on multiple areas.

This is an outpatient procedure, though some patients prefer an overnight stay. Out-of-town patients may recover in a nearby aftercare facility or hotel, where a "private duty" nurse will be available.
