In terms of beauty - the ear is an unchanging attribute of female and male self-esteem
Ears are the most enduring sensory organ. When all the other senses are tired and at rest, the rumors keep watch. The inner ear is formed on the seventh day of the conception and between the fourth and fifth months of the pregnancy of the woman, it is a complete organ. This is the sensation through which the baby prepares for the “sounds” of life.
In terms of beauty – the ear is an unchanging attribute of female and male self-esteem. It can be a real problem for a woman if she can not emphasize her ears with beautiful earrings just because they have stumbled and trying to cover up with her hair awkwardly. The problem is solved with otoplasty!
Surgery correction of the medical language is called auricoplasty. The term otoplasty is also met. As with any plastic surgery, the most important thing is not the term, but first of all to be very well informed about what a ear correction is, what your realistic expectations can be and, after consulting, decide whether you trust the doctor.
Always when it comes to your beauty, and not just to make sure that the ear correction operation is professionally performed, it is important that the aesthetic criteria – yours and your doctor – are synchronized. The choice to make otoplasty can be both aesthetic and reconstructive.
The most common aesthetic operations are retraction and correction of ears – eyelid, plasticity of eyelid ears, various injuries and tears, need for correction of large and long ear lobes.
In otoplasty, a incision is made in the fold behind the ear to taper the cartilage and retrieve it so as to achieve the aesthetically acceptable curvature of the earlobe.
There are also techniques where cartilage does not need to be thinned, but a little skin is removed and the ear canal is reversed by seams. In patients with varying degrees of undeveloped cartilage and in cases of cartilage injuries, the ear surgery also requires other specialized techniques that will be explained to you during the consultation on a case-by-case basis.
Otoplasty due to congenital defect, including when reconstruction is required – restoration of total or partial occlusion is best to be performed in childhood, about 6 years of age. Then the ear has reached 4/5 of the size it reaches the older man.
And for purely psychological reasons, the teenage child will be left with many inconveniences if the otoplasty is done before he goes to school. It is not recommended to adjust the ears between 14 and 17 years of age – this is the period of sexual maturation and complications may occur.
Topical ophthalmology is performed with local anesthesia, followed by standard analgesic medications. The bandage is worn for 10 days until the threads are removed. A month after the ear surgery surgery, the patient should wear an elastic band. The scar of otoplasty is usually very small and is hidden behind the earlobe, so it is generally inconspicuous.
The desired effect in otoplasty is for a lifetime.
