Otoplasty or Ear reshaping
Otoplasty is addressed to young and adult patients who have protruding or distorted ears.
This can be a consequence of a thick cartilage in the body of the ear or in the lobule or a combination of both.
Different techniques are available .The surgeon will determine which is the most suitable for your condition.
The procedure is done under local anesthesia with sedation in adults and general anesthesia for the children.
The skin incision is behind the ear so no visible scars.
A dressing like a helmet is applied for the first 4 days in order to protect the ears and then the patient can wear a tennis band for one week.
