Why do you need ear surgery?

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 the ear may occur, need otoplasty. The most common deformation is prominent ear deformity.

The deformity manifests as a more outward angulation rather 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, because of the cartilage memory, headbands are not able to correct the ear deformity.

Otoplasty procedures 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.

What is the best timing for ear correction surgery?

patient safety for otoplasty surgeryThe optimal age for cosmetic ear surgery is 6.

Talking about the child’s ears amongst the friends in 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 is pre-school age. (Ref. Pediatric esthetic otoplasty)

If you have not undergone surgery in this period, it is possible to have otoplasty later on at any time in your future life.

What will I aim in ear surgery?

My objective is to make you happy by 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 before. Under-correction and asymmetric ear shapes are the most common complaint of the patients consulting me. Sometimes, their corrective surgery challenges are even more than the primary surgery. Therefore your first ear surgery is crucial. The goal is to achieve the best outcome in a single shot.

Where will I perform your otoplasty surgery?

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.

How will I perform otoplasty?

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 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’s designed to be curved on the cartilage, makes it easier to bend.

In cases with huge cartilage, little cartilage reduction may be required. If necessary, I remove the excess part of cartilage. Then, I reposition the ear backwards with internal stitches to secure the new position of the ear.

If your otoplasty 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. 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. (Ref. Otoplasty technique)

How is recovery period after otoplasty?

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 in a proper position for 3 days long. I will invite you for a follow up on the 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.

How will you feel yourself after ear surgery?

Diagram shows, how you will feel yourself emotionally during the recovery period of otoplasty. The effect of the surgery may impair your emotional status. However, as time goes on, you will recover and get rid of surgical effects; and eventually, you will gain your confidence back.

How should you care against risks of the cosmetic ear surgery?

Post-operative care is critical for the first 3 months after otoplasty.

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 is necessary for correction.

The cartilage gains its permanent shape 3 months after ear surgery when its settled. 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 to any trauma.

What are the risks and complications of ear surgery?

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.

Infection is a rare complication after ear surgery. Antibiotic medication will minimize the infection risk.

Hypertrophic scar and keloid formation arise from the person’s genetical skin characteristics. If poor wound healing occurs after otoplasty, scar treatment methods help to improve the scar. Since the scar will be located 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 ears 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 may lead 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, long term stitch reaction does not occur.

In case of any complications following the otoplasty, it can easily be managed and treated as well. (Ref. Complications of otoplasty)
