Also known as ear reshaping or pinnaplasty, otoplasty is a cosmetic ear surgery that enhances the shape and size of the outer ear. It focuses on solving problems of the pinna, the part that protrudes on each side of the head. In certain cases, the pinna appears larger than normal or is misshapen due to congenital defects or traumatic injury.
Otoplasty is a cosmetic procedure, which means it doesn’t have any profound impact on the function of the ears. It may result in changes with how sound is perceived, but they are almost always subtle that they don’t affect the hearing process. Ear surgery can be performed on children five years and above. By this time, the ears have already fully developed, and patients are also more likely to be prepared to undergo the procedure.
For upper eyelid surgery an incision generally is hidden within the natural fold of the upper eyelid, for lower eyelid surgery an incision is hidden just below the lower lashes.
Frequently local anesthesia is used for patients undergoing eyelid surgery. You probably will be permitted to go home in a few hours after the surgery.
During the first days following the surgery patients will see swelling and bruising. These symptoms disappear within seven to ten days but can vary from patient to patient.
