Ear reshaping surgery which is also known as Otoplasty is performed on individuals who have cosmetic issues with their ears. Many people feel embarrassed about the shape and size of the ears. In some people, the ears tend to protrude outwards and this may lead to very disheartening and derogatory remarks from others. Women who have odd shaped ears try to conceal it by growing their hair long but this measure is very temporary. The only permanent solution to the problem of oddly shaped ears or protruding ears is an ear reshaping surgery. An otoplasty or an ear reshaping surgery is a very common surgery in India and is performed at The Esthetic Clinics in Mumbai.
An otoplasty can accomplish the task of ear reshaping completely but the overall results from the surgery can have a very big effect on the patient’s life. Therefore, it s important that an otoplasty is performed by a very skilled surgeon who can take care of the cosmetic as well as the functional outcome of the surgery.
In addition to executing reshaping of the ears, an otoplasty can also be used to address other problems such as removal of excess cartilage or skin from the ears or shorten the earlobes. The approach for an ear reshaping surgery depends upon the surgeon and typically an otoplasty is performed under general anesthesia. For reshaping or pinning the ears more closely to the head, the incision is made posteriorly to access the cartilage. Once the ear cartilage is reshaped, the ear can be repositioned as desired. After the otoplasty, the incisions are sutured. An ear reshaping surgery requires a combination of two to three techniques. Depending upon the amount of reshaping that is required; the ear reshaping surgery may be done by cartilage scoring or cartilage sparing. In most cases an ear reshaping surgery does not take very long and the surgery can be completed within two to three hours.
A patient may require an otoplasty on either one or both the ears. In case the otoplasty is carried out on both the ears, it is known as a bilateral otoplasty. There is no difference between a regular ear reshaping surgery and a bilateral otoplasty. Apart from ear pinning and reshaping, otoplasty also refers to the surgery which is performed for reduction of the ears. In an ear reduction otoplasty, the size of the ears is optimized so that the patient’s face looks balanced overall. An ear reduction otoplasty can be performed on children and adults. This type of otoplasty may or may not involve ear pinning surgery.
There are multiple benefits of undergoing an otoplasty. An otoplasty is a very safe procedure and generally has no risks or complications associated with it. Otoplasty can be used for fixing multiple issues of the ears and not just protrusion of ears. The recovery time after an otoplasty is minimal. Patients can return to normal activities within 7- 10 days of otoplasty. The results of an otoplasty are quite natural and the patients actually observe better quality of life after an otoplasty as it increases their confidence.
