Ear Surgery Case 79

Otoplasty -SanJose                                                                                                                                    
For this type of ear surgery, correction of prominent and dissimilar ears, the parents of this little boy chose San Jose Plastic Surgeon Vincent Lepore. At the time of his first visit to Dr. Lepore, the little boy is 4 years old, and his parents have a number of concerns regarding the comments of other children. Often, medical insurance will cover this type of corrective ear surgery. In this case, there were multiple corrections. The deformities were different for each ear. One ear was prominent, lacking what’s known as an antihelical fold and rim. The other ear was quite a bit smaller, and fit the description of what’s called a cup ear deformity, in which the cartilage curls over and forms a cup shape. Following extensive consultation, the parents decided to proceed with otoplasty. The parents were also counseled on their role in the healing process, including scar care. In the photographs you can see a dramatic result. Both the little boy and his parents are very happy with the outcome.

Ear Surgery Case 556

Making changes. Needs and wants change over the years. This woman, now in her upper 30s, has had ear gauges for a number of years. The earlobes adapt to the gauges, and when they are not present, a large hole and hanging skin remain visible.  Our patient decided the time for her gauges had past, and came to us for help. Through ear surgery, Dr. Maser was able to close the holes, repairing and restoring the shape and look of the earlobes.

This young man has been bothered by the asymmetry of his ears for some time. The upper pole area of his right ear has always been more prominent, and also has a less developed antihelical fold. During surgery - Otoplasty - Dr. Lepore reconstructed that area, correcting the prominence, and achieving better contour and symmetry. Our patient is very pleased with the outcome.
