Description

Otoplasty is a surgery of the external ear which is done for improving the size, shape and/or position of the ear so as to give them more natural and pleasing appearance.

Most of the times, it is done as a cosmetic procedure and does not affect the hearing ability. Otoplasty can only be performed after 5 years of age after the ear has grown completely. It is mostly done on both ears so as to achieve symmetry. 
 

Indication

The doctor may suggest otoplasty in following cases

  • Correction of a congenital ear defect that affects the size, shape and/or position of the ear.
  • External ear is deformed due to an injury
  • Ears are large in proportion to the head
  • Ears are not of the same size
Pre-Procedure

Physical examination of the ear will be done. Expectations from the procedure will be extensively discussed.

The doctor will recommend to stop taking blood thinners, at least 2 weeks before the procedure.

During-Procedure

The procedure is performed by an experienced plastic surgeon under local or general anesthesia. 
Incision is made on the back of the ears in the crease lining. Excess skin and cartilage are then removed and re-contouring is done. The incisions are then closed giving sutures. 

The procedure can take up to 2 hours.

Post-Procedure

Ears will be covered with bandage immediately after the procedure. The patient can go home on the same day.

The doctor will suggest to keep the wound dry and also avoid friction of the ear with other surfaces. Bandage is likely to be removed after few days. Ears will stay swollen for a few days after the bandage is removed. 

The patient can get resume routine activities (like wearing headphones or helmet) after 4 to 6 weeks.
 

Risk and Complication

Although a safe procedure, some known risks are

  • Overcorrecting the protruding ears can lead to pinned back appearance. 
  • Surgery might not give desired results and there may be asymmetry. 
  • Change in sensation over the skin of the treated area, however this is temporary.
  • Bleeding and infection
