Otoplasty surgery, also known as ear surgery or ear pinning, is a cosmetic procedure performed to reshape and reposition the ears. It is commonly used to correct prominent or protruding ears, address ear deformities, or resize overly large ears.
Otoplasty can be performed on both children and adults.
Otoplasty is usually performed under local anesthesia, which means the patient is awake but the surgical area is numbed. In some cases, general anesthesia may be used, causing the patient to sleep throughout the surgery.
How is otoplasty done?
Otoplasty, also called ear surgery or ear pinning, is done by making an incision behind the ear, where it’s hidden in the natural fold. The surgeon sculpts and reshapes the ear cartilage, repositions the ear closer to the head using internal sutures, and closes the incisions with dissolvable or removable sutures. This procedure aims to reshape and reposition the ears, correcting prominent or protruding ears and addressing ear deformities
Otoplasty Post-operative care
Following the surgery, the patient’s head is usually wrapped in a dressing or bandage to protect the ears and aid the healing process. The dressing may need to be worn for about a week depending on the surgeon’s instructions and complexity of the otoplasty operation. Pain medication and antibiotics may be prescribed to manage discomfort and prevent any infection.
Recovery time can vary, but most patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort, which gradually subsides over time. It is important to follow the surgeon’s post-operative instructions, including avoiding intense activities and keeping the head elevated during sleep.
Otoplasty surgery can significantly improve the shape and position of the ears, resulting in a more balanced and proportionate appearance.
However, it’s crucial to consult with a qualified and experienced surgeon to discuss your specific concerns, goals, and potential risks associated with the procedure.
