Otophlasty (protruding ears)

Ear correction (otoplastic surgery)
The procedure aims to improve the appearance of the ears by setting appropriately the earlobe and possible recreating undeveloped parts of earlobe cartilage. Usually ear surgeries are performed due to undesired appearance of the earlobes or their deformation. A common reason for the surgery includes protruding earlobes. This defect is visible in children. Such a procedure may be conducted at age of approx. 6-7 years before a child goes to school and is subjected to psychological consequences. At this age, earlobes are fully developed and surgical interference does not disturb further development.

During the first consultation, details of the correction and type of anaesthesia are determined, photographic and computer simulation of postoperative effect is made and duration of the patient’s stay in the clinic is estimated (usually patient is discharged on the same day). Consultation with anaesthesiologist is performed as well.

It is necessary to:

Conduct the following laboratory tests: complete blood count, bleeding time and clotting time, blood type and ECG test. There are no clear contraindications preventing from performing otoplasty. Relative contraindications include: diabetes, anaemia, untreated hypertension, bleeding disorders, inflammation of the operated area. 

The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia. Skin incisions are located on the back surface of the ear and are invisible. Surgery’s aim is to model the ear cartilage so that the ear would stick to the head in a natural way. Surgery performed once will result in correct "sticking” of the ear for a lifetime. The patient remains at the clinic for several hours. Directly after the surgery, painful swelling of the earlobes may occur. Convalescence lasts for approximately 2 weeks. Ear band should be worn (only during sleep) for the period of three weeks until stitches and dressing are removed which takes places between 3rd and 7th day after the procedure. Rare complications include bleeding or infections.
