Ear pinning

Ear deformity surgeries are among the most commonly performed procedures. Protruding ears can cause many unnecessary complexes. Although it is mostly children who suffer from this, many adults have never come to terms with the appearance of their ears. Ear plastic surgery (Otoplasty) can relatively quickly and easily correct this congenital imperfection. Cosmetic surgeries can also alter the shape or size of the ear (in cases of significant difference in shape between the ears). These procedures are very well tolerated by patients, who usually return to normal activities after a few days. The most important thing is that these procedures leave no visible scars and are almost completely painless.

The aim of corrective ear surgery is to improve the appearance of the ears by positioning the auricle and possibly reshaping underdeveloped cartilage elements. The procedure involves reducing the angle of the auricle relative to the skull and restoring its correct anatomical structure. Excess skin is excised from behind the auricle, the cartilage is appropriately shaped and secured in the proper position. Sometimes it is necessary to excise a portion of the cartilage. The skin is closed with fine stitches. The procedure takes up to an hour.

After the surgery, the stitches and postoperative dressings are removed on the tenth day. For several weeks, the ears should be protected from injury and frostbite. For a minimum of one month, sleeping with a headband is recommended to prevent accidental ear trauma during sleep.

Possible complications:

Occasionally, complications such as bleeding, infection, and the formation of hypertrophic scars may occur after the procedure, which may require reoperation.

Patient anesthesia:

The procedure is most commonly performed under local anesthesia.

Conditions for performing the surgery:

A prerequisite for the procedure is good general health and normal results of basic laboratory tests. Contraindications to the procedure include: coagulation disorders, uncontrolled hypertension, inflammatory conditions in the operated area.

Required tests:

  • Bleeding and coagulation time test
  • Morphology and blood group
  • There is no need to stay in the clinic, and the absence usually lasts 7 to 10 days.
