He is renowned throughout the greater Los Angeles area as a compassionate, dedicated surgeon – a reputation that attracts many LA, San Fernando Valley and Encino ear surgery patients every year.
Ear Surgery (Otoplasty) Procedure
While ear surgery is usually performed on children between the ages of 4 and 14, many adults also benefit from this procedure. Skillfully performed ear surgery can “pin back” protruding ears, reduce large earlobes and correct otherwise malformed ears. Because the ear structure and aesthetic needs vary from patient to patient, Dr. Sanders conducts thorough consultations with each individual seeking ear surgery in LA / Encino, during which time he develops a customized treatment plan.
Depending on the extent of ear reshaping, otoplasty surgery is typically completed in two to three hours, during which time a patient is under local or general anesthesia. After surgery, special bandages are placed on the ears, and the head is wrapped in a thick bandage. The bandage protects the ears while they are healing, and it also helps reduce post-operative discomfort. While the complete recovery might require several weeks, many Los Angeles ear surgery patients are able to return to work within three days after surgery.
