An Otoplasty @ glojas
Ear reshaping, also known as Otoplasty, refers to a range of common cosmetic surgery procedures designed to correct the size and shape of the ear and earlobe.
What causes abnormal ears?
Our genes largely dictate the shape and size of our ears. In these respects, ears can vary enormously between individuals as well as between the right and left side. In situations where the ears appear to be particularly prominent or when the shape looks out of the normal, psychological effects are often experienced.
Ear surgery can be used to treat many other ear deformities such as; reshaping cartilage ears that have an unnatural shape, reducing overly large ears and reducing large earlobes or earlobes that have been overstretched (by wearing earrings, or as a result of ‘ear stretching’, also known as gauging).
You are also able to have otoplasty to increase the size of a very small ear, or even rebuild new ears if you were born without an ear.
Is there Downtime?
It takes 7 to 14 days to heal depending on the invidual’s recovery process.
What does the surgery involve?
This minor surgery usually involves making a single incision behind the ear, exposing the cartilage. The cartilage is scored and stitched to produce the desired position and shape.
Is it painful?
There will be no pain as local anaesthesia will be administered before the surgery. Most patients only have very minor pain and discomfort during the days following the ear reshaping surgery, this can be controlled with over the counter medications such as paracetamol and anti-inflammatory tablets.
What is the cost?
It starts from USD1,000 onwards depending if it’s one ear or both and the issues faced and the desired results.
