Enhancing Your Sense of Facial Harmony with Corrective Ear Surgery

The correction of prominent ears (also known as otoplasty) can be a very rewarding procedure at any age and is something we will certainly consider for teenagers. Given that overly large ears or ears that don’t properly contribute to an overall sense of facial harmony can be a source of discomfort in a young child’s life, and that many ear deformities can be present at birth, ear surgery is also appropriate for children in many instances. This treatment works to improve the overall shape and appearance of the ear by removing or reshaping the cartilage within your ear, correcting your appearance, and creating a more complete sense of facial symmetry.

To learn more about how ear surgery can benefit you or restore your child’s quality of life, simply reach out to our Glasgow call center and set up your consultation with a member of our staff today. An expert surgeon will be excited to get you or your child started on your life-changing cosmetic journey.

When to Consider Ear Surgery

Also known as otoplasty, ear surgery is an effective way to address problems with the ear that can be either cosmetic or functional in nature. In many instances, people seek out ear surgery because they simply wish that their ears framed their face in a more attractive way. Ear surgery is also a solution to problems with the ear that have begun to negatively impact a patient’s ability to hear.

Ear surgery is most frequently considered to address the following issues:

  • Trauma that has damaged the ear
  • Misshapen ears
  • Congenital birth defects
  • Overly large ears
  • Damage from piercings
  • Uneven position

Preparing for Ear Surgery

Before your surgery, you’ll meet with an expert member of our surgical staff for a highly informative consultation. During this time, your surgeon will get to know you, your physical characteristics, and your cosmetic goals, taking all of this into consideration when constructing your bespoke surgical plan. Cosmetic surgery is never a one-size-fits-all solution, so your ear surgery will be tailored to you and crafted according to the results you’re anticipating.

You’ll be given detailed instructions for how to prepare in the days leading up to your procedure, and your surgeon will explain the details of your procedure to you as thoroughly as possible. You’ll talk through incision placement, what you can expect in terms of post-surgical scarring, and any other relevant details. Our goal is to ensure your complete peace of mind as you look forward to your impressive surgical outcome.

Your Otoplasty Procedure

Most ear surgery procedures take between one and four hours, depending on the nature of the work being done, and the extent of the issues being addressed. Many adults find local anaesthesia to be suitable, but general anaesthesia tends to be best for children. We utilise minimally invasive techniques whenever possible, and make every effort to place incisions so that post-surgical scarring is easily concealed.

Otoplasty is a “day case” procedure, so you’ll be able to rest and recover at home after your procedure is complete. Most patients need to keep their ears bandaged for about two weeks, and find that they can rejoin their normal routines after about three weeks of recovery. You’ll be given detailed aftercare instructions, and we’ll schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your healing progress and ensure that you’re progressing nicely.
