Everything to know about Otoplasty Surgery

Dr. Zakhary, a facial cosmetic surgeon, trained specially in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery and exclusively in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, performs Brow lift surgery on both men and women in Calgary, Alberta.

What is Otoplasty?

Dr. Zakhary, a specialty Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery - Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Specialist in Calgary, performs Otoplasty surgery on both children and adults. Ear pinning surgery is not as simple as it may seem, and requires precision, attention to detail, and the expert knowledge of the cartilage structure of the ears that Dr. Zakhary possesses.

The goal is to move the ears back towards the back of your head while keeping them looking natural and not too flat, and to bring the ears into a more pleasing harmony with the rest of your facial features. All the incisions will be hidden behind your ears.

The Procedure

Dr. Zakhary usually performs Otoplasty or Ear pinning surgery in a fully accredited Calgary surgical facility, under general anesthesia, and typically this procedure can be performed within 2-2.5 hours. During the ear pinning surgery, the ear cartilage is carefully repositioned and reshaped with multiple permanent sutures to correct or restore the overall position, shape, proportion and symmetry of the ears. In the future, one or two of these sutures may be rejected by your body, and if this happens, they can be easily removed, leaving the overall corrected shape of your ears unchanged.

In some cases, more than one procedure may be necessary to improve the ear shape and ensure the best results. The positive results of Otoplasty (ear pinning) surgery are usually present immediately after bandages are removed, and the self esteem benefits will last a lifetime.

EarLobe Repair Procedure

Dr. Zakhary is one of the few facial cosmetic surgeons in Calgary who offers Earlobe repair surgery to repair torn or stretched earlobe piercings. She performs this procedure with great skill and attention to detail. Earlobe rejuvenation is the newest trend in facial plastic surgery, and it requires expertise and precision.

Just like other areas of the face, earlobes tend to lose volume and elasticity over time, leading to elongation, sagging, creases and an over-all older appearance. Split ear lobes or long ear lobe piercings may be caused by accidental trauma, such as an earring being pulled from your ear.

Earlobe rejuvenation surgery hides one of the telltale signs of trauma or aging, and can reverse the look of stretched ear piercings. Ear lobe repair or rejuvenation is usually a quick, painless procedure. Dr. Zakhary performs this surgery as an in-office procedure, under Local anesthesia. It takes about 1-2 hours depending on the situation, and on whether Dr. Zakhary will perform ear lobe repair on one or both of your ears.

After earlobe repair surgery, the stitches are easily and painlessly removed in about five to seven days, and ears may safely be pierced again in about 6 to 8 weeks. Dr. Zakhary will be able to recommend a good ear piercing location in Calgary, Alberta for you to re-pierce your ears at the appropriate time.

The goal of earlobe rejuvenation is to create earlobes that have a more normal shape and size, which are in harmony with the rest of your facial features.

What our patients have to say

I love Dr. Zakhary. After she fixed my stretched earlobes, she helped my self confidence a lot. She is a truly amazing surgeon and a remarkable doctor who really cares about her clients.
Mick Copsey
Dr Zakhary is highly skilled and meticulous in her work. She repaired my torn earlobes and did a great job. Now I can wear earrings and feel comfortable about how I look.
I went to dr. zachary in response to an ad for earlobe repair. very impressed. organized, punctual, caring and high quality. available for questions and follow-up promptly. had both earlobes repaired and also had an age spot on my face lasered and fixed, highly satisfied with all. highly recommended.
I am thrilled with my earlobe repair that she did for me to fix my torn earlobes. You can't even see a scar. She followed up with me many times to make sure I healed well, and she even told me where to re-peirce my ears when the time was right. I have never met such a friendly doctor. She obviously loves her job and it shows in the work she does. I have already recommended her to my sister who wants to have a nose job. Excellent team too!
I had my earlobe repaired, and a minifacelift, as well as botox and fillers with Dr. Zakhary, all of which were done to my full liking and complete satisfaction. I am therefore going to continue with her and I am happy to refer her to all my friends to visit her clinic. I would most certainly encourage everyone to see her to have the same wonderful experience I had with his surgeon.
Dr. Zakhary saved my life last week! My daughter had gotten a huge earring inside of her ear that I didn’t allow her to get. We went straight to Dr.Zakhary’s office and although it did take quite a bit of time, she was able to make it look good as new!
Remi Hart
I had an otoplasty scheduled with Dr. Zakhary after an accident when it came to my earrings. It looked hideous until Dr. Zakhary got a hold of it. She told me it was easy which I didn’t think so but she did have 16 years of experience. At the end of the day, my ears looked like nothing had happened.
Eyal Levinson
I trusted Dr. Zakhary from the moment I walked into her office. I came to her because I was looking for earlobe reconstruction surgery as I had stretched my earlobes over many years to about 1" in size. In May/19 Dr Zakhary did a quick procedure in her office to sew them back together. My earlobes look so natural now - like nothing was ever done to them. I would recommend Dr. Zakhary and her team because they provide quality and professional care for all their patients.
Jennifer Berard
i got both of my earlobe reconstructed by Dr Zachary and she did an awesome job. always an amazing experience every time i come to her office for my follow up check up. Her and her team are super awesome. would recommend to anyone 1000%
Juan Carlo Antonio
I had my ears done by her. I had big holes in the lobes before and no longer wanted that look. She did a flawless job so much so that I am planning to have a bunch more work with her. Look no further for your doctor, you found her!
