OTOPLASTY, also known as cosmetic ear surgery, is a procedure to change the ears’ shape, position, or size.
This problem can be caused by congenital issues such as MICROTIA and ANUSITIS.
Ear correction surgery or Otoplasty reshapes part of the cartilage in the ears, allowing them to lie closer to the side of the head. Most people who have Otoplasty are between the ages of 4 and 14.
This is because, at that age, ear cartilage is softer and easier to mound. However, Otoplasty can still be effective in adults, although the Otoplasty can be done at any age after the ears have reached their full size
Otoplasty can also alter large or stretched earlobes or lobes with large creases and wrinkles. Plastic surgeons can even build new ears for people born without them or who have lost them through injury.
Other ear problems that can help with Otoplasty include:
If you are concerned about the way you or your child look and think about surgery, maybe it’s better to do this surgery.
Why it’s should it be done?
You might consider Otoplasty if
Your ear or ears stick out too far from your head
If looking beautiful is important to you
If you do not feel good about your situation of ears
Your ears are large in proportion to your head
You’re dissatisfied with a previous ear surgery
The condition and beauty of your ear is essential to you
Otoplasty is typically done on both ears to optimize symmetry
Otoplasty Y won’t change the location of your ears or alter your ability to hear.
What happens during Otoplasty surgery?
Otoplasty techniques vary based on what kind of correction is needed. The specific technique your plastic surgeon chooses will determine the location of the incisions and the resulting scars.
Otoplasty surgery takes around one to three hours, depending on the complexity. You may have a local anesthetic and sedation, but some people prefer a general anesthetic. Children are usually administered general drugs.
Generally, Otoplasty involves several steps, including:
The fold of skin behind the ear is cut to expose the underlying cartilage.
The medical practitioner removes the excess cartilage. In some cases, the cartilage is remodeled.
For example, the medical practitioner may reshape the cartilage by folding it back and stitching it in place. Incisions (cuts) are closed with stitches.
Initially, you’ll talk to a plastic surgeon about Otoplasty
During your first visit, your plastic surgeon will likely:
• Check your medical history. Be prepared to answer questions about current and past medical conditions, especially any ear infections. Talk about any medications you’re taking or you’ve taken recently, as well as any surgeries you’ve had.
• Do a physical exam. To determine your treatment options, the doctor will examine your ears — including their placement, size, shape, and symmetry. The doctor might also take pictures of your ears for your medical record.
• Discuss your expectations. Explain why you want Otoplasty and what you’re hoping for in terms of appearance after the procedure. Make sure you understand the risks, such as possible overcorrection.
If you’re a good candidate for Otoplasty, your doctor may recommend that you take some steps to prepare beforehand.
• What Risks may it have?
Smokers are at increased risk of complications. To decrease the risk of complications and for your general health and wellbeing, try to quit smoking before having surgery.
1.You may be were born with Overly Prominent Ears
Some children are born with protruding ears or have ears that “stick out” as they grow and get older. This prominence may not be problematic or even noticeable until the ears have reached their full size, typically at six years of age. If ears are overly prominent once they’ve reached their full growth, ear pinning can be performed. This simple intervention involves flattening the ears against the head. This procedure is commonly performed on children.
2.Your ear may not fit the rest of your face.
Perhaps the ears themselves are not overly large but stand out when compared with other facial features. There are also situations in which one ear may sit on the head asymmetrically to one another. By repositioning one or both of the ears to create balance and restore symmetry, Otoplasty can rectify these issues.
3.Your ear has been damaged before
Past injuries can also be the cause for asymmetrical or prominent ears and can cause undue emotional suffering. Some people opt for Otoplasty as an adult due to dissatisfaction with previous surgery.
Regardless of the reason for considering an Otoplasty, the procedure has an exceedingly high patient satisfaction rate. Some adults have waited their whole life for this surgery and look forward to finally being able to put to rest the taunting voices from childhood that chided them for their too-big ears.
4.Having a beautiful profile in which
the fit of the ear plays an essential role helps to improve self-confidence and beauty, which ultimately leads to peace of mind.
What should be done after surgery?
After Otoplasty, your ears will be covered in bandages for protection and support.
You’ll likely feel some discomfort and itching. Take pain medication as recommended by your doctor. If you take pain medication and your discomfort increases, contact your doctor immediately.
To keep pressure off your ears:
1. Avoid sleeping on your side.
2. Try not to rub or place excessive force on the incisions.
3. Consider wearing button-down shirts or shirts with loose-fitting collars.
A few days after Otoplasty, your doctor will remove your bandages. Your ears will likely be swollen and red. You’ll need to wear a loose headband that covers your ears at night for two to six weeks. This will help keep you from pulling your ears forward when rolling over in bed.
Talk to your doctor about when — or if — your stitches will be removed. Some stitches dissolve on their own. Others must be removed in the doctor’s office in the weeks after the procedure.
Ask your doctor when it’s OK to resume daily activities, such as bathing and physical activity.
Also, keep in mind that resting and not doing strenuous activity after surgery is very important.
