Who Is Otoplasty Suitable For?

Otoplasty is an operation suitable for all ages compared to other aesthetic operations. It is necessary to wait until the ears reach adult size. Generally, it is appropriate to perform ear aesthetic surgery from the age of 5-6. Patients may have otoplasty due to congenital or injuries. It is important that the patient's general health is good and that he does not have a chronic disease that may prevent this surgery.

Otoplasty Procedure

Otoplasty aesthetics is a procedure performed under anesthesia as in other aesthetic surgeries. The surgeon can perform the operation under local or general anesthesia. Incision sites and techniques depend on the correction sites. Additional incisions may be required in the inner fold of the ears. The surgeon may remove excess cartilage and skin to reshape the ears during the procedure. Patients are given a clear view of what their ears will look like before the operation.

Recovery from Otoplasty

After the otoplasty operation, surgeons cover the ears with bandages for protection. Patients should lie on their back, not on their ears, to minimize pressure on their ears. It is possible to feel discomfort and itching. Ears may become red and swollen. However, this is temporary. Bandages are removed within a few days.

Is Otoplasty Painful?

Otoplasty surgery is not a painful procedure as anesthesia is applied by surgeons before any incision is made. Patients may feel a slight pain at the end of the surgery. In this case, the painkillers prescribed by the surgeon will be sufficient.
