Probably no feature stands out as well as the floppy ears (clapauge), especially in the case of children, when dysproports are more easily noticed. Surgery to correct ear defects can be performed as soon as the child reaches the age of five or six, when the ears have reached their final size.

OTOPLASTY SURGERY

If the ears are protruding, you can resort to joining them to the head by sutures. If one ear is located higher than the other, a repositioning technique can be used to create symmetry. Large, oversized ears can be treated individually or in conjunction with other ear defects. For cases where surgery is not desired, a soft cartilage contouring system using splints can be used.

Corrective earlobe surgery can be performed on patients who, for various reasons, have suffered earlobe deformities, and a simple reduction of the earlobe may be enough to give the whole face a youthful appearance. Periauricular wrinkles can also be removed with PlexR laser and hyaluronic acid.

WHAT KIND OF INCISION?

The positioning of the incisions depends largely on the type of surgery performed. In any case, they will be made in places that are difficult to see: either behind the ear, in the fold, or at the level of the inner folds of the ear.

RECOVERY AFTER SURGERY

  • the ears will be bandaged and the bandages will be replaced periodically by the surgeon
  • the first week after otoplasty must be dedicated to recovery
  • a minimum of movement is necessary to remove the risk of blood circulation blockage from the equation
  • the patient must not sleep on his side
  • after about a week the sutures will be removed, if they are not self-absorbing

RESULTS

The results of otoplasty are permanent.

What is otoplasty?

Otoplasty is a surgical procedure for children over the age of five or six and adults whose ears are at a large distance from the head, are asymmetrical or require cartilage remodelling. The procedure involves making a hidden incision behind the ear to reshape the cartilage to reduce the size or improve the aesthetic appearance of the ear. The aim is to obtain a more natural shape of the ears, the fixation being done with permanent wires. The procedure lasts around two hours and is performed under local anaesthesia so that the patient does not feel any pain or discomfort.

What are the reasons to have an otoplasty?

The otoplasty procedure is suitable for patients who need corrections to the structure, position or appearance of their ears. The procedure is used if the ears are asymmetrical or too voluminous, missing the forehead or flattened. It is also a popular operation among those who have ears at a very large distance from the head. Besides correcting the physical appearance, otoplasty is a good solution for those who struggle with self-confidence due to the atypical appearance of their ears.

What are the results after otoplasty surgery?

If you wish to benefit from otoplasty surgery, you should know that the final result is to restore the most natural look possible and a structure that is appropriate and proportional to the rest of the features of the head. Another benefit would be that this kind of surgery does not require post-operative hospitalization. The effectiveness of otoplasty also lies in the care given to the recovery period, especially in the first week after surgery. The bandages will be replaced periodically by the surgeon, but sleeping on one side, overexertion, supporting the ears in the hands or various traumas to them should be avoided.
