Who is the ideal candidate for ear surgery?

Ear surgery is usually performed from 6 years of age. However, ear surgery can be performed to fix prominent ears, popularly known as blow ears, in children 6 years and older. At this age the ears have practically reached the size and development that they will have in adult life.

Below we provide an introduction to what you can expect from ear surgery.

 

Ear surgery

An incision is usually made behind the ear, thus leaving an almost invisible scar. From this incision, the surgeon remodels the cartilage of the ear, making it fold in the appropriate places, reduces the depth of the shell and dries out the excess skin, if necessary.

Depending on the age of the patient to be treated, ear surgery can be performed under general or local anesthesia and usually takes 45 minutes to an hour.

After ear surgery

After ear surgery, a bandage is usually placed that models each part of the ear to allow it to heal in its correct situation.

Once removed, it is usually convenient to wear a tennis tape at night for one or two weeks to prevent the ear from folding forward during sleep.

Ears with implant. What does it consist of?

It is a simple, personalized and effective surgery to correct prominent or blow ears.

The difference with conventional surgery is that in this case it is possible to do a previous evaluation with the doctor on the first visit by placing a simulator on the outside of the ears. In this way, the ears will take the desired shape depending on preferences.

Another advantage is that the surgery is performed in less time.

The clinical procedure is quick and is performed under local anesthesia. A permanent implant called an ear fold is placed under the skin and then a few stitches are placed that do not need to be removed as they are reabsorbed.

Ears with implant. Recommendations before treatment

Two weeks before, neither aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) nor anti-inflammatories can be consumed.

Two days before, you cannot consume alcohol.
