Prominent ears or ears that have become stretched due to aging can often lead to self-consciousness or dissatisfaction with your personal appearance. All this can be alleviated with the otoplasty procedures carried out at the Geoplasty Center, which can be performed quickly, painlessly, and can give you an overall more balanced and contoured look.
Otoplasty shapes and molds ears that are too large or extend from the sides of the head. This surgery gives a more standard and balanced appearance to the ears and can improve self-confidence.
Dr. Georgopoulos is a skilled aesthetician with a vast amount of experience in carrying out otoplastic procedures.
When performing ear surgery, Dr. Georgopoulos will make small incisions in the folds of the skin behind your ears where they will be practically unnoticeable. This allows him to access the cartilage of your ear so he can remove a small amount of cartilage and shape the remaining cartilage to a more appropriate ear shape. After closing the incisions, a bandage is applied that holds the ears closer to the head as they heal.
Patients can have different reasons for having otoplastic surgery and people’s ears can be very different. For this reason, Dr. Georgopoulos will outline the specific procedure that applies best for your ears.
After the Otoplasty
After otoplasty, you will need to keep a bandage in place around your head for a few days to keep the ears in place. This helps them to heal in the correct position.
There can be some slight swelling and minor pain, and Dr. Georgopoulos will prescribe pain medication if necessary. For several weeks after the surgery, you will need to avoid activities that may cause your ears to be impacted.
There are few side effects with otoplasty and those that do occur are rare. In some cases there can be swelling, infection or the formation of scar tissue. When you have your consultation with Dr. Georgopoulos, he will make you aware of the risks and give you guidance on how best to avoid them after your procedure.
