Otoplasty or an Ear Shaping Surgery is a surgical procedure to create a more natural ear contour and restore the facial balance/symmetry.
It is generally done for Prominent Ears.
In the event that you have distorted or projecting ears or you have a youngster who does, an otoplasty might be the right option for you. Otoplasty is a surgery to adjust variations from the norm in the structure of the ear.
The surgery is regularly focused for kids who are aged 5 or over. A few grown-ups also additionally have corrective ear reshaping surgery. Otoplasty can rectify strangely expansive ears; "cut ear," which implies your ear tip creases down, and drifts forward; or "shell ear," which implies certain components of an ordinary ear are lost, for example, the bend in the external edge and other regular folds.
Fortunately, therapeutic headways have made it significantly less demanding to experience an otoplasty. Right now, there are a few ways the ear can be reshaped.
All incisions/stitches are behind the ear so invisible. The surgery is done on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia with or without sedation or general anaesthesia.
Post Operation Care
When you are sent home, you will have a dressing on the ear.
The stitches are removed around a week post surgery.
You should wear your dressing for around one week.
