Ear surgery, also known as Otoplasty, can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear. A defect in the ear structure that is present at birth or that becomes apparent with development can be corrected by otoplasty. This procedure can also treat misshapen ears caused by injury.
Otoplasty creates a more natural shape while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of even minor deformities can have profound beneﬁts to appearance and self-esteem. If protruding or disﬁgured ears bother you or your child, you may consider plastic surgery.
01.How is Otoplasty performed?
The front and the back of the ear are injected with the anesthetic lidocaine and epinephrine, a chemical that stops bleeding. An incision is made in the back and possibly the front of the ear. Through these incisions the cartilage is shaved, bent, whittled, and removed, depending on the surgeon’s preference and the particular problem. The skin is then closed, and a form-fitting dressing is placed.
02.Otoplasty can benefit:
– People who feel their ears protrude too much. - People who feel their ears are too large. - People who have an ear deformity.
Earlobe Repair is a procedure that aims to repair a split or torn earlobe, stretched earlobes, enlarged earring hole in earlobes, or any other history of trauma to the earlobe. Torn, stretched, and enlarged earlobes are one of the most common aesthetic deformities of the ear and can result from heavy earrings, an earlobe that is pierced too low on the ear, or from trauma. Unfortunately, it can cause significant distress to the patient who wants to continue to wear earrings or would like to restore symmetry to their earlobes.
01.How is Earlobe Repair performed?
The Earlobe Repair is done under local anesthesia. Once the patient is numbed, the inner lining of the elongated earlobe hole is removed surgically, and the edges are then closed back together with stitches. The placement and design of the suturing will help to make the length of the earlobe shorter.
02.Earlobe Repair can benefit:
– People who have previously stretched their earlobes. - People who have elongated earlobes due to years of wearing heavy earrings. - People who have an ear deformity.
