Prominent ears are often due to genetics. We understand that the ears are an important part of the way we look. They impact the overall perspecitve of the face. Although prominent ears may cause discomfort and distress for adults it can also impact children.
Medically known as an Otoplasty, or ear pinning is the surgical procedure used to modify and correct the shape of the ears. Our team uses advanced tools to ensure that this surgery has next to no risks.
Benefits of ear surgery:
- Aesthetically pleasing ears
- Minimal risk
- Little downtime
How prominent ear surgery administered?
This treatment is performed under either general or local anaesthetic and does not require an overnight hospital stay. Small incisions are made behind the ear, and the cartilage is pulled toward the scalp following the reconstruction.
Will I be under local or general anaesthetic?
Typically this surgery is carried out under general anaesthetic. In some cases, local anaesthetic can be used.
What happens after the surgery?
Following surgery, you will be required to sleep with your head elevated for up to a week. Bandages will be applied around the ears immediately after surgery and they will be removed the day after the surgery. You will then be required to wear a headband that covers the ears for 3 – 4 weeks, after which you will only need to wear it at night (for up to 12 weeks).
You can shower the second day after surgery but do avoid rubbing ears as this can disrupt the stitches and your overall result.
It is normal for ears to feel stiff for multiple months after surgery. Most swelling will subside after 6 weeks but it’ll take close to 6 months before you see the final results of this surgery.
Painkillers will be prescribed to relieve any postoperative pain.
When can you get back to your usual daily routines?
Usually, after an otoplasty, you will be able to return to your usual routine within two weeks. This procedure does not affect hearing and leaves no scars.
Does the ear revert back?
If the procedure is carried out correctly, the chances of the ear reverting are minimal.
Is the surgery painful?
While these surgeries are performed under local anaesthesia resulting in no pain during the procedure, some postoperative aches and pains may occur. These can be relieved by taking prescribed painkillers. Bruising should subside for up to 2 weeks.
