Ear surgery (otoplasty)
Otoplasty is a surgical procedure that can reshape and reduce ear size, generally to promote symmetry. Not only is it possible to “pin back” ears for aesthetic reasons, but there are also a variety of ear problems than can be helped with otoplasty. Surgery can also improve large or stretched earlobes, or lobes with large creases and wrinkles.
The surgical technique for otoplasty may vary with each patient’s condition. The common techniques, the surgeon makes a small incision in the back of the ear to expose the ear cartilage. Then the cartilage is sculpted and bent back toward the head.
Most patients, young and old alike are delighted with the results of ear surgery. We aim that the ears be in proportion to the size and shape of the face and head.to improve and natural-looking ears. For both ears to match in perfect symmetry is unlikely and unnatural.
Another technique involves a similar incision in the back of the ear. Skin is removed and stitches are used to fold the cartilage back on itself to reshape the ear without removing cartilage.
You should avoid placing pressure against the ear areas. In fact, any activity in which the ear might be bent should be avoided for a month or so. Most adults can go back to work about five days after surgery.
