Ear Surgery / Otoplasty Surgeon in Vancouver

Otoplasty, or ear pinning, is a cosmetic procedure to correct protruding ears such as large or misshapen ears (eg. cauliflower or cupped ears). Depending on the overall appearance of the ears, an otoplasty procedure can reposition the ears closer to the head (sometimes called “pinning”), reduce the size of the ears, correct asymmetry between ears, or reshape any deformities in the cartilage to create a more contoured appearance.

Given otoplasty’s customizable nature, there is no one procedure utilized for every patient. However, patients can expect general or local anesthesia, a small incision near the hairline, and the skin to be pulled with excess being removed as needed. While otoplasty surgery does require some downtime, patients can anticipate returning to their normal routines (minus contact sports and hard exercise) in just one week.

Candidates for Male Otoplasty

Otoplasty tailored for men addresses concerns related to the appearance of ears—some of the most common concerns that drive men to seek otoplasty include prominent ears, ears that are asymmetric, or misshapen ears. Candidates for otoplasty should also be in good health and without life-threatening conditions. Be open and honest during your consultation about your medical history and current conditions to ensure your procedure does not result in complications.

How Do I Prepare for Male Otoplasty?

In Vancouver, men seeking skilled ear surgeons turn to Dr. Tregaskiss. As with every plastic surgery, your preparation begins at the consultation with Dr. Tregaskiss– a comprehensive assessment, where patients can express their concerns and desired outcomes. After listening to your concerns and goals during an otoplasty consultation, Dr. Tregaskiss will provide his recommendations to achieve the best aesthetic outcome. Once the patient and doctor have agreed upon their course of action, Dr. Tregaskiss further educates patients about the procedure, discusses realistic expectations, and provides personalized recommendations to prepare accordingly.

Dr. Tregaskiss will spend time with you to help you understand your goals, answer all your questions, and make recommendations.
