Everyone would like their doctor is the best otoplasty surgeon. Also, you would like to have surgery at the best plastic surgery clinic in Dubai.
However, the best otoplasty surgeon is pretty relative and varies from person to person. Actually, the surgeon whom you really trust is the best.
If you plan to have ear surgery in Dubai and need professional support, feel free to contact.
The ear is an organ that directly affects the appearance of a person and has an aesthetic value as well as functional importance.
Although a wide variety of deformities also including absence of ear may occur need otoplasty surgery, the most common deformation is prominent ear deformity.
The deformity manifests as more outward angulation than their normal anatomic position. Also, the folds of the ear looks flatter than normal.
There is no relation to the position of the baby in the mother’s womb and the sleeping position after birth.
Many parents try headbands to correct the ear deformity of their children. However, headbands are not able to correct the ear deformity.
Otoplasty procedure not only corrects the deformities but also your confidence and psychological status. So you will not have to use your hair to cover your ears after the ear surgery.
The optimal age for cosmetic ear surgery is 6.
Talking about the child’s ears amongst the friends in the school may cause the child to develop a complex by influencing the psychological development of the child. That is why the ideal timing for otoplasty surgery is pre-school age.
If you have not undergone surgery in this period, yet, it is possible to have otoplasty surgery later on at any time in your future life.
My objective is to make you happy as achieving an unobtrusive and more acceptable ear shape. So, reshaping your ear will improve your facial image and restore your self-confidence.
Some patients seek a solution as they experienced a failed otoplasty surgery before. Under-correction and asymmetric ear shapes are the most common complaint of the patients consulting me. Sometimes, their corrective surgery challenges even more than to do the primary surgery. Therefore your first surgery is crucial. The goal is to achieve the best outcome in a single shot.
Joint Commission International (JCI) works to improve patient safety and quality of health care in the international community by offering education, publications, advisory services, and international accreditation and certification. It is the recognized global leader in healthcare accreditation with the highest standards built on maximum safety and minimum risk.
There are a couple of hospital options that I affiliated with, which accredited by JCI. I will perform your surgery at either one of the distinguished, cutting edge hospitals in Dubai. You may opt for one during the consultation.
Ear correction surgery requires local anesthesia supported with sedation for children under 15. Local anesthesia alone provides sufficient numbness in adults.
In my practice, the otoplasty surgery will last about 30 minutes for each ear.
After the local anesthesia, I cut the skin on the back side of the ear. Thinning and weakening the line that designed to be curved on the cartilage make easier to bend.
In cases with huge cartilage, little cartilage reduction may require. If necessary, I remove the excess part of cartilage. Then, I reposition the ear closer to back with internal stitches to secure the new position of the ear.
If your otoplasty surgery is under the local anesthesia, you will be awake. Therefore, I will let you check your ear shape with a mirror. So that you will have the chance to explain which ear shape you would like to be. When I achieve the ear shape that you desire, I will close the incision with hidden absorbable stitches.
Since there will be no stitch on the skin surface, you will not experience stitch removal stress and pain after otoplasty surgery.
Just after the ear surgery, you may leave the hospital, no need to stay overnight.
You may feel mild pain a couple of days following the procedure. Painkillers make you feel pain less.
The bandage keeps your ears on proper position for 3 days long. I will invite you for follow up on third day to remove the bandage. After bandage removal, you will be able to have a shower.
Following the otoplasty, you may see bruising and edema (swelling), which disappear by themselves within 7-10 days.
Post-operative care is critical first 3 months after otoplasty surgery.
Avoiding trauma is critical during this period. Otherwise, if any trauma damages the ear before completing the cartilage healing process, the ear shape reverts. In terms of your health, this is not dangerous. However a second otoplasty surgery is necessary for correction.
The cartilage gains constant shape as conglutinating 3 months after ear surgery. When the cartilage shape is fixed after 3 months, it is no longer risky. Therefore the ear shape does not revert, even if it is exposed any trauma.
The complication rates of otoplasty are the compilation of medical literature data. The rates may vary depending on the surgeon’s experience. That does not mean you will experience all those complications.
Hematoma is the blood collection inside the wound. It is avoidable complication by meticulous bleeding control during the otoplasty procedure.
Infection is a rare complication. Antibiotic medication will already minimize the infection risk.
Hypertrophic scar and keloid formation arise from the person’s genetical skin characteristics. If poor wound healing occurs after ear surgery, scar treatment methods help to improve the scar. Though, since the scar will locate on the backside of the ear, it will not be visible.
Asymmetries and recurrences may occur within first 3 months due to any probable trauma. In such cases second ear surgery is necessary. Therefore, avoiding trauma and taking care of your ear not to be folded during sleeping are very important in the first 3 months.
Rarely the body shows a reaction against the internal sutures and leads to a little persistent pimple. If a stitch reaction occurs, removing the stitches solves the problem. Since I always use long lasting soluble stitches in otoplasty surgery, long term stitch reaction does not occur.
In case of any complication, it may bother you. However, it can easily be managed and treated as well.
