Houston otoplastyHave you or your child ever been teased for having larger-than-average ears? If so, Dr. Malik Kutty can help by offering a plastic surgery solution called otoplasty. But what, exactly, is otoplasty?

Otoplasty is defined as a cosmetic procedure that restores or enhances the overall appearance of your ears. Because each person is unique, each surgery is unique as well. Otoplasty can be customized to include one or both ears depending on the circumstances.

Dr. Kutty performs this procedure through the following steps:

  • Patient is placed under anesthesia
  • Small incisions are made directly behind the ears
  • Cartilage and skin is removed, trimmed or reshaped
  • Ears are firmly secured into place using sutures
  • Patient is taken to the recovery room and prepped to return home

Once everything has healed, the stitches are removed. Ultimately, you'll be left with stunning results as well as improved self-confidence. The scars associated with this procedure are minimal and barely noticeable due to their placement behind the ears. This surgery is safe and takes about two to three hours under general anesthesia.

Dr. Kutty has significant experience working with patients of all ages, from children to adults, who are seeking a cosmetic solution to their protruding ears. To fully determine if this procedure is right for you or your child, Dr. Kutty will meet with you in person to discuss your cosmetic goals and needs. By working together, we will formulate your personalized treatment plan.
