Call Us For Incisionless Otoplasty and Ear Surgery
Dr. Gantous was the first surgeon to offer this technique for correcting prominent ears in Canada. He has performed hundreds of these procedures in both adults and children and has developed a keen interest and expertise in this operation.
In an incisionless otoplasty the ear is reshaped by placing permanent stitches (the same kind that are used in the traditional open technique) through the skin and burying them underneath without the need for any cuts. The reshaped cartilage of the ear is scored with a needle in order to “create” some scarring that will help the ear retain its shape. The operation can be done under local anaesthesia if desired and takes about 20 minutes per ear. The patient can go home the same day and only needs to wear a head band at night for the first two weeks.
Compared to the traditional technique, the incisionless otoplasty is a less painful operation and has less chances of a complication arising.
Dr. Gantous will assist you in determining whether you are a good surgical candidate for this operation.
