Ear Surgery

Ear Reshaping

If you (or your child) have large or protruding ears, you understand how much embarrassment it can cause. In Santa Rosa, ear surgery (otoplasty) from Dr. Victor Lacombe can set prominent ears back closer to the head or reduce the size of large ears, giving you or your child relief from self-consciousness.

Dr. Lacombe has devoted his career to providing advanced techniques for improving the aging face. To learn more about ear surgery, you can request your complimentary consultation with Dr. Lacombe online or call his office at (707) 577-8292. At his office in Santa Rosa, Dr. Lacombe sees men and women from throughout Northern California including Sonoma County and Marin County for ear surgery (otoplasty).

Ear Surgery Basics

Besides protruding ears, there are a variety of other ear problems that can be helped with surgery. These include:

  • “Lop ear,” when the tip seems to fold down and forward.
  • “Cupped ear,” which is usually a very small ear.
  • “Shell ear,” when the curve in the outer rim, as well as the natural folds and creases, are missing.
  • Surgery can also improve large or stretched earlobes, or lobes with large creases and wrinkles.

Because a child’s ears are almost fully developed by the age of 4, this procedure is usually done between the ages of 4 to 14. Adults can also benefit from otoplasty, without additional risks.

The Procedure*

Most adults can go back to work within a day or two after surgery. Children can safely return to school within 5 to 7 days. They must, however, be careful not to damage their ears, especially when playing. You may want to ask your child’s teacher to keep an eye on your child for a few weeks. Any activity in which the ear might be bent or hit should be avoided for a month or so.

Roderic Wallace Trusts Dr. Victor Lacombe

“Probably one of Dr. Lacombe’s greatest assets is his intuitive understanding of what it takes to create a very natural yet aesthetically pleasing result. In my case, a brow lift opened up my eyes, a subtle lift to the tip of my drooping nose dealt with the negative effects of gravity, a small chin implant balanced a newly sculpted neck and stronger jaw line… yes, a number of procedures done at one time, but oh so worth it in the long run. I can enthusiastically endorse Victor as one of the finest plastic surgeons around.*”
