WHAT IS A OTOPLASTY?




Otoplasty is a surgical procedure that changes the shape, position, or size of the ears. It can also correct deformities or injuries of the ears, or create new ears for people who are missing them. Otoplasty is also known as cosmetic ear surgery or ear pinning.

ABOUT THE OTOPLASTY PROCEDURE



The otoplasty procedure varies depending on the type and extent of correction needed. Typically, the surgeon makes an incision behind the ear or within the natural creases of the ear. The surgeon then removes excess skin and cartilage, reshapes the ear and repositions it closer to the head if necessary. The incision is closed with stitches or sutures. Otoplasty is always performed under general anesthesia, at the surgeon´s discretion.

OTOPLASTY RECOVERY



The recovery from Otoplasty may take several weeks. You may have some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the ears. You will need to wear a bandage around your head for a few days and avoid sleeping on your side. You will also need to avoid activities that may cause trauma to the ears, such as contact sports, swimming, or wearing glasses or headphones. The surgeon will give you specific instructions on how to care for your ears and when to resume your normal activities.

ARE YOU THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR AN OTOPLASTY?



You may be a good candidate for otoplasty if you are bothered by the appearance of your ears and have realistic expectations about the outcome. You should also be in good health and have no medical conditions that may affect your healing.

No, Otoplasty does not change the location of the ears or alter your ability to hear. It only affects the outer part of the ears, not the inner ear or the ear canal.

As with any surgery, Otoplasty has some risks, such as bleeding, infection, allergic reaction, or anesthesia complications. Other risks specific to Otoplasty include scarring, asymmetry, skin sensitivity changes, suture problems, or overcorrection. You should discuss the potential risks and benefits of otoplasty with your surgeon before the procedure.
