Ear Surgery

Reconstructive or cosmetic ear surgery helps people in Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Washington, DC improve their appearance and self-confidence. This procedure can "pin back" ears, reshape them, reduce them in size, or make them more symmetrical. Both children and adults are candidates for ear surgery, also known as otoplasty. Whether you or your child will be undergoing otoplasty, safety is of the utmost importance. Dr. Houtan Chaboki has extensive experience performing otoplasty and provides a safe, caring environment for his patients and their families.

In Washington, DC, ear surgery should not be performed for children until the ears have reached full size, usually around age 5 to 6. However, because protruding ears may cause self-consciousness and poor adaptation at school, Dr. Chaboki believes that otoplasty should be performed as soon as possible after the ears are fully developed. While you are under general anesthesia or sedation, he will make a small incision either behind or in front of the ear that will be carefully placed to minimize scarring. He will reshape the cartilage and keep it in place with internal sutures.

Dr. Chaboki can also reconstruct torn earlobes which may occur as a result of heavy earrings, metal allergy, or trauma. In some cases, the earlobe is stretched from the prolonged weight of heavy earrings or the hole from the piercing becomes very elongated. The ear lobe also naturally becomes big or long with age and should be corrected along with a facelift for Maryland area patients. Splits in the earlobe, stretched piercing holes, or long ear lobes are easily repaired in the office with local anesthesia. After a healing period, Dr. Chaboki may re-pierce your ear if you so choose.
