What is the rate of complications with ear surgery?
Cosmetic ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, involves risks just like any other plastic surgery procedure. During recovery there is usually only mild bruising and minimal discomfort which improves within a week or so of the procedure. Otoplasty complications are minimal and rare if performed correctly by an experienced plastic surgeon, particularly a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon like Dr. Anthony Bared. Most minor complications can be relieved with medication or simple treatment.
