Correct the aesthetic deformity of your ears and improve your appearance and confidence. At Geoplasty Plastic Surgery, we offer the most contemporary and reliable treatments and techniques for otoplasty.
What an otoplasty is
An otoplasty is the most common plastic surgery procedure in children, as it may be performed after the age of 6-7, when the ears have adequately developed.
Prominent ears is a congenital disorder during which the ear cartilage develops helix atrophy or hypertrophic conchal bowl. This results in an increased distance between the ears and the scalp.
Otoplasty treats these types of cosmetic problems quickly and painlessly, and contributes towards a more classic and balanced appearance.
Otoplasty aims to restore the deformity of the big ears or those that stick out too far.
It is also considered necessary in older people whose ears have gotten longer with age.
How an otoplasty is performed
The procedure is usually performed under local and twilight anaesthesia. A preoperative check-up is performed before the procedure.
The doctor accesses the ear cartilage with small incisions on the folds of the skin behind the ears. He removes a small amount, defines the remaining cartilage and gives the desired shape.
After the incisions are closed, a bandage is placed, keeping the ears close to the head while healing.
If the ears are aged, then a different technique is performed, either on the cartilaginous part or on the earlobe.
The most suitable procedure will be recommended by Dr Georgopoulos, depending on what suits you best.
What happens after the procedure
For a few days you need to wear a bandage around your head. The bandage holds the ears in place, so that they heal in the right place.
For a few weeks, you need to avoid activities that may injure your ears.
The incisions are practically invisible, while the sutures are absorbable.
What the possible complications of an otoplasty are
Otoplasty rarely develops side-effects, such as haematoma, infections, keloid scar, pain and aesthetic deformities.
We will provide detailed information on the possible complications and advise you on how to avoid them.
