What is an ear surgery in Boston like?
A patient in Boston has the option to have an ear surgery done in the hospital or in his surgeon’s clinic and they can also choose to use local or general anesthesia throughout the procedure. The procedure starts with separating a small portion of the patient’s ear from the skin after which your surgeon will be making small incisions along the crease of the ear to minimize scarring. The cartilage of the ear will then be sutured and formed to mimic the natural contours of the ear and to move it closer to the head. If there is a need to make any incisions in the front of the ear, it is made within the ear folds to hide the incisions.
