What is Ear Surgery?
Ears that appear to protrude and stick out, are asymmetrical or misshapen, or look too large can negatively impact your self-esteem, especially for children. Ear reshaping surgery (also known as otoplasty) is a cosmetic treatment that helps to redefine the shape, size, and position of the ears to result in a natural appearance. Dr. Staci Hix-Hernandez is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Central Texas who has helped countless women, men, and children to overcome their anxiety of showing their ears with this surgery. Regardless of the cosmetic issue, otoplasty at Beleza Surgery allows an individual to show their face from any angle with confidence. If you or your child are concerned about the size or shape of your ears, contact us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Hix-Hernandez at one of our four Beleza Surgery locations in Cedar Park, Round Rock, Austin, or Killeen, TX to find out about your options for otoplasty.

"As a mother of four children I seldom do anything for myself. The youngest is 16 and I decided I wanted to get a little something done. I went in to discuss breast options and I was super shy. I wasn’t even able to talk about it to begin with but within just a few minutes Dusty was able to easily make me feel just fine. They talked me through every step, were honest about healing, and all my options. Dr. Hix was the most amazing doctor who showed concern and care not only for me but also my daughter who we just mentioned briefly. Completely professional and still welcoming and caring. I would recommend this group for any cosmetic procedure, lift, tuck, and spa treatments offered. You will not be disappointed."- L.T. / Yelp / Jun 26, 2022
What Can I Expect from Ear Surgery?
Otoplasty is completed using general anesthesia or IV sedation at our Cedar Park, TX location in our accredited OR. For many patients, the incision is placed around the back portion of the ear or within the inner folds. During this procedure, cartilage may be removed or added to create a smaller or larger appearance. It's generally common for each ear to be addressed during otoplasty to ensure they appear balanced. After the procedure, the incisions are closed with sutures and wrapped so they can remain protected. Once the procedure is finished and you are released to leave the outpatient surgery center, you will heal and rest at home. Dr. Hix-Hernandez or a member of her team will give recovery instructions. It's very important to not touch or scratch the ears. It's also important not to lay on the ears, and instead, sleep upright for the first several days. Dr. Hix-Hernandez will ask to see you back within the first week when she will remove the wrappings and assess you or your child's ears. The outcomes are visible right away, and the results will continue to look better as the ears heal.
Reshape for a Renewed Confidence
While the ears are not very big, the wrong shape, position, or size can make a big difference in a person's appearance.
