At Precision Aesthetics , we can help clients who are unhappy with the shape of their ears. They may be too large, too small, protruding or deformed in some way. Common problems may include the following:
- Cup Ear: Irregular development of the outer ears
- Lop Ear / Bat Ear: Where the edge of the ear’s exterior may grow at a sharp and protruding angle
- Cauliflower Ear: May be caused by a crush injury to the ear cartilage
- Spock’s Ear: Ears that may have a protruding sharp edge
- Shell Ear: Ears that may be missing folds and creases
Because ears are such a highly visible part of your facial features, this form of surgery can be very complicated and may require the precision of an experienced aesthetic surgeon. You can trust Precision Aesthetics to deliver the perfect results.
What’s involved in ear correction Otoplasty?
There can be several types of Otoplasty procedures for ear deformity, each with a different manner of treatment. At Precision Aesthetics, we can tailor each procedure according to our patient’s needs and preferences. Generally, operations can be performed by repositioning or altering the flexible cartilage structures of the ear. Before surgery commences, general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia would be administered, depending on the type of procedure. During surgery, an incision would be made through the fold behind the ear to allow for access and a less visible scar. Techniques can include the rearranging or sculpting of existing ear cartilage, adjusting the position of the ear helix and lobe to that of the head; rearranging, excising or adding skin or cartilage grafts and flaps. Surgical incisions may ordinarily be placed behind the ear where any remaining surface scars should not be visible. Once the procedure is completed, the final scar should be very faint and hidden from view. The sutures used in the procedure should dissolve and should not require removal. Recovery can take approximately 7 to 14 days.
