About the Service
Otoplasty, also known as cosmetic ear surgery, is a procedure to change the shape, position or size of the ears. Today, cosmetic interventions make possible for the appearance of many people to be completely improved. People consider otoplasty if they are bothered by the shape of the auricle. People might choose to have otoplasty if they are bothered by how far their ears stick out from their head. They might also consider otoplasty if their ear or ears are misshapen due to an injury or birth defect. Some people may feel that their ears are “too” prominent, and this can cause embarrassment and psychological distress. In fact, some research shows that having prominent ears can lead to low self-esteem, isolation, and a lack of confidence. People who find their ears too large mainly mean the form of the upper part of auricular cartilage. The problems can be caused by a weak auricular cartilage, congenital deformity, or if the ridge of cartilage at the top of the ear does not fold properly during development. The position of the ear may be part of genetic inheritance, but you do not need to live with it. It can be easily corrected by a simple and safe aesthetic surgery. There are two main cases for ear cartilage surgery: protruding ears caused by a wide angle between the patient’s ear and the head or flat ears lacking curved structure in the upper half of the ear. Both deformities can be corrected through giving a natural shape to the ear bend or narrowing the angle of the head and the ear. After the surgery and the healing process The price of the ear surgery may vary depending on the details of the surgery, your choice of hospital, and whether you require general or local anesthesia. Protective mesh tape may be recommended during postoperative healing to maintain the position of your ears. This aesthetic surgery is the only example that is recommended and can be used for younger patients. Complete recovery is achieved in about a week after the surgery, which would only last about an hour.
