ABOUT THE SERVICE
Otoplasty, also known as cosmetic ear surgery, is a procedure that alters the shape, position, or size of the ears. Today, cosmetic interventions enable significant improvements in many people’s appearance. Individuals may consider otoplasty if they are dissatisfied with the shape of their ears or feel that their ears protrude too far from their head. Otoplasty might also be an option for those with misshapen ears due to injury or congenital defects.
Some people may feel that their ears are overly prominent, leading to embarrassment and psychological distress. In fact, research suggests that having prominent ears can result in low self-esteem, social isolation, and a lack of confidence. When people complain about their ears being too large, they usually refer to the shape of the upper part of the auricular cartilage. This issue can arise from weak auricular cartilage, congenital deformity, or improper folding of the cartilage ridge at the top of the ear during development.
The position of the ear can be a genetic trait, but it doesn’t have to be permanent. A simple and safe aesthetic surgery can easily correct it. There are two primary scenarios for ear cartilage surgery: protruding ears caused by a wide angle between the ear and the head, or flat ears lacking a curved structure in the upper half of the ear. Both deformities can be addressed by reshaping the ear bend or narrowing the angle between the head and the ear.
After surgery and the subsequent healing process, the cost of ear surgery may vary depending on the specifics of the procedure, your choice of hospital, and whether general or local anesthesia is required. Protective mesh tape might be recommended during postoperative healing to maintain your ears’ position. This aesthetic surgery is unique in that it is recommended and suitable for younger patients. Complete recovery typically occurs within a week after the surgery, which only lasts about an hour.
