About Cosmetic Ear Surgery
Ears that protrude and stick out, are uneven or are too large can affect a person’s self-esteem, especially during the impressionable childhood years. Ear reshaping surgery (also known as otoplasty) is a cosmetic surgery that can help correct the shape, size, and position of the ears and create a normal appearance. Dr. Edward Lee is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has helped countless men, women, and children in the Houston, TX area overcome their fears of exposing their ears with this life-changing surgery. Regardless of the deformity, otoplasty allows an individual to show their face at any angle with confidence and self-assurance.
Otoplasty can be performed at any age, however, it is common among children and is recommended before they reach elementary school. By age 6 this surgery is safe and effective to be performed on a child. If you dislike the appearance of your ears because they stick out, are too large, are misshapen, or have a visible deformity, otoplasty can help you regain a natural appearance. If you suffer from a torn earlobe, you are also a candidate for cosmetic ear surgery.
"Dr. Lee is very personable! He is always very thoughtful and kind. If you are looking to get a procedure done, he will be able to kindly guide you through the process. Very seldom do you meet a doctor who is as considerate and relational as Dr. Lee!"- J.B. / Facebook / Mar 12, 2017

"I had such a wonderful experience at Nouveau Plastic Surgery and Med Spa!! The staff is beyond spectacular. From the hands on (and handsome ladies/ gentlemen) owners Randy Rakes and Dr. Edward Lee to the nurse, injectors and Esthetician's (Alonah rocks!!).... Everyone is very informative, well trained, kind, knowledgeable, and on point. I've never felt in more capable and experienced hands. They have all the newest and greatest technology to aid in skin rejuvenation. And if you need a little help beyond that (which I did), Dr. Lee is one of the absolute best plastic surgeons in town. He is meticulous in his art. I would trust him with any procedure I decide to have done in the future and I feel completely confident in recommending him to any of my friends, family, or acquaintances. If you're looking for a wonderful med spa, Nouveau Plastic Surgery and Medspa is hands-down one of the best I've ever been to. Trust me! You'll love it there! It's amazing!!"- P.G. / Yelp / Aug 01, 2018
"Marty does brilliant work with injectables. She makes a plan, takes her time. She is very experienced and knowledgeable. I was comfortable with her and very impressed with the results. I had natural, but noticeable changes and Marty made suggestions no one else had. :)"- C.G. / Yelp / May 03, 2018
Plan Your Procedure
Cosmetic ear surgery is performed under general anesthesia. In most cases, the incision is placed behind the ear or within the inner ear folds. During surgery, cartilage will either be removed and the ear reshaped to a smaller size, or it will be added if a deformity exists. It is common for both ears to be touched during surgery to ensure they look even and appear symmetrical. Once the ears are surgically corrected, the incisions are closed with sutures and are carefully bandaged so they stay protected.
What to Expect
After surgery and once you are safe to leave the hospital, you will recover at home. It is important to not touch your ears during the first few days and to avoid laying on them during sleep. You will be advised to sleep upright for a couple of days. We typically like to see our otoplasty patients back within a week and at this time, we’ll be able to remove the bandages and assess your surgical results. The results can be seen right away and the effects of surgery will continue to improve as you heal. Most patients can resume their normal activities within 2 – 3 weeks.
Show Your Face From All Angles
Otoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that not only enhances the look of the ears, but it allows patients to regain their self-esteem.
