Otoplasty for a Beautiful and Attractive Ear
Plastic surgery has proven to be very useful in a large
variety of ways. No longer is it
always about improving the beauty and appearance of individuals in different social
classes. The use of plastic
surgery, for example, in the case of an otoplasty, can be something that enables beauty lovers to gain the
kind of confidence they need. Also known as ear pinning or cosmetic ear
surgery, Otoplasty is a form of cosmetic surgery that helpstoimprove or correct the shape, size or placement of someone’s ears. In short,
An otoplasty is a surgery of the ear, reconstructing or pinning it in such a
way that it resembles more closely the type of ear that an average person would love to have. Otoplasty is
not an anti aging procedure.
An otoplasty is one of the least invasive plastic surgeries that there
are. It, of course, requires the
skill and experience of a qualified surgeon, because much of it is not only for function, but for aesthetic
appearance, as well. The surgeon
must be able to reconstruct the ear in the way that is needed to produce the best results possible.
A local anesthetic is usually all that is required for such a procedure, but a
general one may be administered to those individuals, such as children, that may need it. The surgeon will then proceed to make the necessary
incisions in the ear to be able to shape it the way that was previously agreed upon between himself and the
client. Using a needle, he can then
reshape the cartilage in the way that it should be.
To help the entire structure heal in this way, a large bandage will be placed
over the ear, so that the wound will heal appropriately.
People with an active ear infection may not undergo otoplasty until the infection
is completely cured. Those children
who are also in need of special surgeries on their tonsils or ear drums are often advised to
wait. As in many other plastic
surgery procedures, the expectations of the patient may exceed reality, thus contraindicating the apparent
“success” of the procedure.
Because the entire structure of the ear is being reconstructed, it is advised that
the individual seek out the kind of doctor that will produce the high quality results that they are hoping
for. Different doctors with
different levels of expertise will naturally charge different amounts for their services. Although you may be able to find a doctor willing to
charge a lower price, you may not wish to risk the kind of results he will give you. An average estimate of the price you should expect to
pay is around $3,400.
Infection of the stitches is a common occurrence following an
otoplasty. There also may be an
overcorrection of the ears, which may actually turn out for the best, as the ears will change a little over
time. If you experience serious or painful symptoms, your Physician
will prescribe you an appropriate treatment to fight against these health issues.
