Surgical correction of prominent ears, also called otoplasty is one of the few cosmetic plastic surgeries that is recommended from the age of three, for it is considered that with today's alternatives, carrying out this procedure at an early age prevents the child from growing up with a complex due to large ears.
Any healthy person, child or adult, who has large or prominent ears is a good candidate for otoplasty or corrective ear surgery.
How is Otoplasty surgery done?
Otoplasty can be done with local anesthesia and sedation or general anesthesia. The type of anesthesia is chosen by the anesthesiologist and the patient. For small children general anesthesia is recommended. The otoplasty incision is made behind the ear (this incision is camouflaged by the ear’s natural retro auricular fold). Excess auricular cartilage is removed through this incision or sutures are applied to give the ear a more natural shape.
How is the recovery after Otoplasty surgery?
After the surgery a sport tight head band should be worm to cover the ears all day long during the first week. In the following three weeks, the head band should be worm only at night or when the patient is at home.
