Ear surgery

At Dignity Health Medical Foundation, ear surgery is performed to correct protruding ears. This procedure is typically performed on children but can be done on adults as well.

Teasing is an unfortunate and uncomfortable part of childhood, but teasing due to protruding or poorly positioned ears can be very hurtful. Help your child through her formative years by electing ear repositioning surgery.

Ear surgery offers almost immediate results in cases of protruding ears and, since the ear is positioned closer to the head, surgical scars are either hidden behind the ear or well-hidden in the natural creases of the ear.

Before undergoing ear repositioning, you will discuss the surgical and healing process with your Dominican Medical Group of Santa Cruz plastic surgeon to ensure that your expectations are met, and you have the tools necessary to help your child through the post-surgery healing period.

After the ear surgery, you or your child will be comforted in our recovery area, providing time to ensure a smooth transition home. Your surgeon will discuss post-operative instructions and, of course, our staff is available should you have any concerns after returning home.
