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.
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.
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.
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.
