Ear Deformity Surgery in Sugar Land, TX

Dr. David Stapenhorst of Signature Plastic Surgery offers Ear Deformity Surgery to the residents of Sugar Land, Texas, and Houston, Texas. Many children are born with ear deformities. The two most common types of ear deformities are protruding ears and ear microtia. Protruding ears stand out from the head significantly more than normal ears. Ear microtia is a more significant deformity. Dr. Stapenhorst works closely with children who are suffering from ear deformities to offer them a more natural appearance and improved hearing.

What happens during the Ear Deformity Surgery by Dr. David Stapenhorst?

Dr. Stapenhorst administers a general anesthesia for the Ear Deformity Surgery. For protruding ears, an incision is made behind the ear, and the existing cartilage and tissue are reshaped. Ear Deformity Surgery for ear microtia requires several surgeries over the course of two years.

When can normal activities resume after Ear Deformity Surgery?

The degree of Ear Deformity repair affects the recovery time. Dr. Stapenhorst discusses post-operative activities with the child’s parents during the consultation appointment. Parents should be especially diligent to ensure that the repaired ear is not injured.

Is there any pain associated with the Ear Deformity Surgery?

Dear Patients,

I am announcing the closure of my practice, Signature Plastic Surgery. Effective December 31, 2022, I
will be moving on to a new practice opportunity. I have enjoyed serving the people of Sugar Land since
2008. This has been a difficult decision for me to make, but I am looking forward to the new
opportunity, and I know that I will look back fondly on the past 14 years.
