About Cosmetic Ear Surgery
Ears that appear to stick outward and protrude, are asymmetrical or misshapen, are noticeably too large, or earlobes that have been torn can have a negative impact on your self-esteem, especially as a child. Ear reshaping surgery (also known as otoplasty) is a cosmetic procedure that helps to redefine the size and shape of the ears and form a pleasing appearance. Dr. Fara Movagharnia is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Atlanta, GA who has helped many adults and children move past the fear of exposing their ears by having this surgery. No matter the deformity, otoplasty at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery allows a patient to proudly show their face at any angle with self-assurance.
Ear surgery can be performed at any age; however, it is extremely common among children and is recommended before reaching elementary school. By six years of age, this cosmetic surgery is safe and effective to be completed on a child. If you are frustrated by the appearance of your ears because they are misshapen or protrude outward, otoplasty may be the ideal surgery to help you attain a normal appearance. Sufferers of a damaged earlobe, you may also be a candidate for cosmetic ear surgery.
"A wonderful surgeon and person! - I am so glad that I found Dr Movagharnia! I rarely write reviews, but I had to do this one. The decision to go under the knife can be an extremely scary and difficult one. I want to share that I have had a wonderful, life-changing experience with Dr Movagharnia. I went to him for help with a botched surgery outcome at the hands of another well-known Atlanta surgeon. My experience with him has been nothing short of redeeming and therapeutic. Dr Movagharnia is not only a skilled surgeon, but a genuinely caring, gentle, and hard-working person. During my consultation and preparatory appointments, Dr Movagharnia went to great lengths to ensure that he understood what I hoped for, and that I understood what my options were and what he could do. He shared his expertise honestly so that I could make informed decisions. He went over my chosen procedures in detail, letting me in on every decision that I had previously been excluded from. I’m happy with the transformation that is happening for me, and to know that this was done by Dr Movagharnia! He has truly partnered with me throughout this process. My recovery from the surgery was so much easier than I anticipated, and from experience, I know to attribute this to his gentle precision in the operating room. I was off my pain medication in one week. His sutures were actually beautiful. He followed up to make sure I was doing well after surgery, even over the weekend and after hours. The people working in the office are such friendly, kind people too! Judy responds to every email or call within one day. I feel cared for, and went under anesthesia knowing I was in good hands. I’ve been treated with such kind attention and am so appreciative. Though I’m still healing and my final results will not be evident for another 2-3 months, I’m already amazed and excited! Dr Movagharnia takes pride in his artistry and his ethic, loves what he does, and empowers his patients before and after surgery with information, with proper preparation, and with post-surgery exercises to facilitate healing and best result. He wants his patients to feel proud and be happy and healthy. He has been here for me every step of the way and sincerely wants to make sure we achieve the best possible result. I have had every question or concern immediately addressed. It is critical to be in the care of someone skilled and compassionate. I recommend Dr Movagharnia. He is exactly the kind of doctor I want my family and friends to see."- S.A. / RealSelf / Dec 06, 2019

Cosmetic ear surgery is performed using a form of anesthesia. In most cases, the incision is placed near the back of the ear or within the inner ear folds. During this procedure, cartilage may be removed or added to create a more natural appearance. It is common for each ear to be addressed during treatment to make sure they appear balanced. Once the ears are surgically corrected, the incisions are closed with sutures and are bandaged so they can remain protected. An earlobe repair procedure is generally less extensive, with only local anesthesia typically required. This treatment will involve the suturing back together of the torn areas, and the specific techniques will vary based on the severity of the wound.
What to Expect
Once treatment has finished and you are released to leave the hospital, you will rest and recover at home. Dr. Movagharnia or a member of his team will give recovery instructions. It's very important for your child or you not to touch or scratch the ears. Furthermore, your child or you should not lie down on the ears, rather sleeping in an upright position for the first several days. Dr. Movagharnia will ask to see his otoplasty patients back within the first week — at this time, Dr. Movagharnia will remove the bandages and see you or your child's surgical results. The outcomes are noticeable right away, and the progression of results will continue to improve as the ears heal.
Reshape Your Ears
Although the ears are not very big, an abnormal shape, size, or position may make a huge difference to your child or you. Ear surgery (otoplasty) may help your child avoid getting teased by classmates or help you if you feel uncomfortable about your ears.
