Preparation for Ear Pinning Surgery
Otoplasty patients should discuss their medical history and any potential medications they may need with Dr. Salloum before the surgery. Pain medication may be necessary for facial surgeries, including otoplasty. During the consultation, he will also explain the necessary pre and post-operative measures you must take to ensure a successful outcome; this includes avoiding smoking, alcohol, certain vitamins and supplements, and sun exposure before surgery.
The Otoplasty Procedure
The goal of the surgery is to improve the appearance of the ears by making them look more proportionate to the other facial features. In addition, this procedure can also be used to correct a birth defect or injury that has resulted in misshapen or deformed ears.
The ear surgery procedure is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, which means that the patient will not need to stay in the hospital overnight. The surgery itself usually takes less than two hours to complete. During the surgery, the surgeon will make incisions in the back of the ear to access the cartilage and reshape the ear. The ear cartilage will then be sculpted into the desired shape, and the incisions will be closed with stitches.
Otoplasty Before and After Pictures
*All patients are unique and individual results may vary.
Your Recovery After Otoplasty Procedure
During the days after surgery, the patient will need to wear a headband or bandage over the ears to protect them. The headband or bandage will need to be worn for approximately one week. After that, the patient will need to wear tape over the incisions for several weeks to help them heal.
The vast majority of patients are very pleased with the results of their surgery and find that their ears no longer cause them any embarrassment or self-consciousness. In addition, ear pinning can also improve the function of the ear if it was previously misshapen or deformed to the point where it caused problems with hearing.
If you are considering cosmetic ear surgery, it is important to consult with a board-certified Miami plastic surgeon who has experience performing this procedure. During your consultation, the surgeon will assess your goals and concerns to determine whether or not the plastic surgery procedure is right for you.
Understanding the Otoplasty Procedure
On the day of your procedure, you will be properly sedated, and then Dr. Salloum will make a slight incision on the back of your ear, where a non-removable suture will be used to secure the newly shaped cartilage into place, improving the external ear shape.
Ear Pinning Surgery Side Effects
Side effects of otoplasty are skin sensation changes, minor bleeding, and the rare occurrence of blood clots. These risks can be minimized by selecting an experienced surgeon with a proven track record in this procedure and following their pre- and post-operative instructions closely.
While you may experience some itching and discomfort after your ear surgery, once this subsides, the final result will leave you feeling confident and ready to show off your new look to the world!
