Why Get Ear Reconstruction?
A nursery rhyme says, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” As children, we recite these words in a sing-song manner, but as we grow up, we realize that this statement is simply not true. Words can and do hurt. When a child is teased about his or her appearance, those words may remain and chip away at their self-confidence and self-image, even as the child moves into adulthood. If you or your child have protruding ears or misshapen ears due to injury, you no longer have to live with the ridicule.
Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, can improve the position, proportion or shape of the ear. It can also be used to correct ear or earlobe shape which has been changed by trauma or by the effects of earrings. The goal of ear surgery is to enhance the natural proportions of the face, to improve the appearance and shape of your ear, and to restore a sense of balance.
Ear surgery can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, overly large ears (macrotia) or protruding ears on one or both sides. The best plastic surgeons in South Florida will use varying techniques to perform the ear surgery depending on the type of correction being done. Given that the ear will be permanently positioned closer to the head, the surgical scars will be hidden in the natural creases of the ear or behind the ear.
During ear surgery recovery, pain and discomfort is normal and can be controlled by pain medication prescribed by your South Florida cosmetic surgery practice. Ear surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. The incision is typically well hidden behind the ear in the natural ear fold. Bandages will be placed after surgery, and it is of the utmost importance that the bandages remain intact and are not removed. If a patient fails to heed this instruction, it may result in loss of some of the correction and require a secondary surgery procedure.
