If you or your child are unhappy with the appearance of your ears, Dr. Nima can help by performing otoplasty surgery. This individualized procedure is done to improve the appearance of the ears – whether they stick out from the sides of the head more than you’d like, or they are misshapen due to an injury or birth defect. Otoplasty is an amazing, life-changing cosmetic procedure and one that is sure to restore your self-confidence.
At Eos Rejuvenation in Beverly Hills, Dr. Nima provides a nurturing and highly personal approach to his practice.

If otoplasty surgery sounds like a procedure that could benefit you or your child, you’re likely wondering how long the recovery process will be. Keep reading, and we will talk more about otoplasty surgery and what you can expect during your recovery.
A Bit More About Otoplasty Surgery
As we mentioned, men, women, and children in Beverly Hills can have otoplasty surgery performed to improve the appearance of ears that may be misshapen in some way, due to injury or because of a birth defect. Additionally, patients with ears that are too large for their face, ears that stick out from their head, or who need corrective surgery after a previous otoplasty surgery did not live up to expectations, can all greatly benefit from otoplasty surgery with Dr. Nima.
During your initial otoplasty consultation at Eos Rejuvenation in Beverly Hills, Dr. Nima will thoroughly examine your ears and talk to you about the characteristics of your ears that bother you, as well as find out what your desired outcomes are from your procedure. From this information, Dr. Nima will develop an individualized treatment plan to meet your needs.
During your procedure, Dr. Nima will recreate the upper ear fold of the ear and reduce or set back the overdeveloped middle portion of the ear if needed. With his artistic skill, Dr. Nima is able to carefully and meticulously prepare your ideal look even before your surgery as he focuses on creating a natural-looking ear that fits your face proportionately and seamlessly.
All otoplasty surgeries performed on children over the age of 6 are done under general anesthesia, while adults receive “twilight” anesthesia for their procedure. Dr. Nima is careful to place otoplasty incisions behind the ear, and in such a way, so they are not noticeable to onlookers.
How Long Does It Take Ears to Heal After Otoplasty Surgery?
Most Beverly Hills patients recover fully from otoplasty surgery within six weeks. However, swelling typically subsides within one or two weeks after surgery, and near-immediate results are visible as soon as the dressings are removed!
Once Dr. Nima has completed your otoplasty surgery, he will place a heavily padded cotton bandage around your ears and head to minimize swelling and discomfort. It is important that you not remove this bandage, but instead allow Dr. Nima to remove it during your follow up appointment. After he removes the post-surgical bandage, he will replace it with a lighter bandage to be worn for several more days.
Again, Dr. Nima will remove this bandage at a post-op appointment, and after he has done so, you will be able to resume washing your hair as well as your other normal daily activities, such as returning to work and school.

At Eos Rejuvenation, Dr. Nima views the otoplasty restoration process as one that is done in collaboration with you, the patient. Through open and honest discussion, the two of you will decide on the best course of action to achieve your desired outcome.
