Otoplasty (ears plasty) is an operation that is carried out with the aim of correcting the shape of ear canals, to eliminate congenital (lop-ears, asymmetry of ear canals) or acquired defects.
It is recommended that otoplasty be performed from the age of 6-7 years, that is, at the age when an ear conch is completely formed.
Plasty of ears can be both one-sided and two-sided, depending on indications and anatomical features of ear canals structure.
Otoplasty is an aesthetic correction of ear canals, it does not affect middle and inner ear, nor it affects the quality of a patient’s hearing.
At the meeting, we will discuss your medical history, especially as regards previous injuries (damages), allergic reactions and previous plastic surgeries, if any.
We will consider in detail all the problems that you are experiencing, which, you think, are undesirable and must be corrected.
After examining ear canals, we will discuss in detail your wishes and on how much, in our opinion, the operation will meet them.
Also you will be informed about all the details of the upcoming otoplasty, its duration, rehabilitation period and possible complications.
All of the above-mentioned complications after ear plastic surgery are exceptions that arise periodically despite the leading standards in surgical practice. We have outlined them for the purpose of informing you properly and in no way intimidating.
