Plastic surgery of ears
PPlastic surgery of the ears solves the issue of prominent and deformed auricles, torn earlobes and other deformities of the ears.
- outpatient procedure under a local anaesthetic or analgosadation
- correction of floppy ears suitable for children around the age of seven
- procedure lasts appx. 1 – 2 hours
Process of procedure
The procedure takes place under a local anaesthetic or analgosadation.
Before the procedure of prominent ears, the hair is washed with an antiseptic shampoo - it is not necessary to cut the hair. It is important to start taking Aspirin, Anopyrin or similar medication for thinning at least 10 days before the procedure as they limit the thickening of the blood.
The cut is directed by the instrument Surgitron (limiting scars, faster healing) in the skin fold behind the auricle or close to the head. Occasionally it is necessary to guide the cut on the front of the auricle.
With the correction of prominent ears, the cut is always adapted to and focused on the problematic area for an aesthetic result of the procedure.
The otoplasty lasts from an hour to hour and a half. The new shape of the ears after the operation is fixed with a special bandage that is removed ten days after the procedure.
The bandage is replaced the second or third day after the operation.
The cut is guided by the instrument Surgitron (limiting number of scars, faster healing) in the fold of the skin behind the auricle close to the head.
- decreased swelling after the operation
- precise gentle cut with a concurrent halting of bleeding
- minimal forming of scars in the area of lower eyelids
Any pain or discomfort after the operation of prominent ears can be treated with common analgesics. Do not use Aspirin. We recommend using Wobenzyn for faster healing.
You may feel a degree of pain about four to eight hours after the procedure when the anaesthetic wears off. We recommend resting in a half-sitting position with your head raised. This position mitigates post-operation swelling after the otoplasty. Your hearing will be slightly affected due to the bandage.
About after two days you may feel some itchiness. Do not use any object to scratch under the bandage during the healing period so you do not disturb the final effect. The bandage, along with the modelling cotton, will be removed during your check up ten days after the procedure.
The stiches will be absorbed and will begin to fall off by themselves approximately 14 days after the procedure.
It is necessary to wear a headband during day and night for one month after the ear operation. It is suitable to put some cotton under it during the night in the first few weeks after the operation so as to avoid swelling of the fine skin on the ears.
It is advisable to continue to wear the headband during the night for following month. You should avoid strenuous exercise, especially contact or ball sports, for at least two months after the otoplasty. While on the sun, use a sun-protection cream.
The final price will be established by the doctor, based on the range on the agreed upon procedures during the obligation-free consultation.
