Ear Surgery

Contact us

Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. For the most part, the operation is done on children between the ages of four and fourteen. Ears are almost fully grown by age four, and otoplasty at our Salt Lake City, Provo, and Orem, Utah area practice can help children to avoid the stigma of prominent ears.

Ear surgery on adults is also possible, and there are generally no additional risks associated with ear surgery on an older patient. For improved facial balance, rhinoplasty for Salt Lake City men and women may also be recommended.

Ear Surgery
Procedure

At our clinic in Provo, otoplasty is performed to bring protruding ears closer to the head, or to make large ears smaller. This is done by removing skin and tissue through well concealed incisions, and it is occasionally covered by insurance. As one of the standout plastic surgeons in the Salt Lake City area, Dr. Kevin Rose is committed to providing you with a cost-effective solution. He and his staff will review you or your child’s case and develop a customized, realistic plan for satisfying results.

Ear surgery in the Salt Lake City, Orem and Provo areas takes approximately 2 to 3 hours, and is typically done using general anesthesia. During recovery, patients will wear a bandage that keeps the ears wrapped comfortably but snugly against the head to aid in healing. Most patients can return to school or work in 5 to 7 days, but strenuous activities or sports must be avoided for 1 to 2 months.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation

PRACTICE POLICY UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update April 1st, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until April 25th.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until April 25th.
  • The office will be fully staffed, and we will see our urgent post-surgical follow-ups.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • Many surgeries are rescheduled and some of the ones that are committed will occur on a per case basis.

No patient will ever have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • The staff has been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although COVID-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
