Ear Surgery

Dr. Chan offers ear surgery for patients in Portland, Vancouver and surrounding areas of Oregon and Washington.

Am I a Good Candidate for Ear Surgery?

Patients who are in overall good physical and mental health may be suitable candidates for otoplasty. If you have been struggling with any of the following concerns, ear surgery may be right for you:

  • Overly large ears
  • Protruding ears
  • Dissatisfaction with previous ear surgery

How is Ear Surgery Performed?

The techniques for otoplasty depend on the correction desired and whether it involves reshapping the cartilage, pinning the cartilage back, or setting the entire ear closer to the head. Incisions made for ear surgery are usually invisible because they are made behind the ear. Dr. Chan will create a fold just inside the rim of the ear to help protruding ears. Additionally, for large ears Dr. Chan can reduce enlarged cartilage.

What Can I Expect After Ear Surgery?

You may have slight discomfort following your ear surgery, as well as itchiness under the bandage. It is important to carefully follow all instructions from Dr. Chan to insure proper recovery. Depending on the extent of surgery, you may need to wear a protective dressing over you ear.

How Much Does Ear Surgery Cost?

The cost for ear surgery depends on the complexity of the repair and can be discussed at your initial consultation with us at Reviance Portland®®. It is your obligation to speak with your insurance to see if any of the treatment will be covered under your plan.
