"Prominent ears" or "bat ears" is a very common condition that adversely affects the appearance and psychology of people suffering from this deformity.
Otoplasty is recommended to be performed at an early age to avoid unpleasant effects on the psychology of children.
Extremely common, of course, is the correction of floppy ears in adult men or women, correcting an aesthetic "handicap" and significantly improving the appearance of the person. Otoplasty or ear surgery aims to return the ear flaps to their normal position.
Another case of Otoplasty is ear flap aplasia (agenesis of the ear), in which there is a complete or partial absence of an ear flap. Also very common is the disorder of the "bifid lobe", which occurs mainly in women who, by wearing heavy earrings, have created a separation in the lower part of the ear lobe. This correction is done under local anesthesia and has excellent results.
There are no scars and marks, the patient can even return to work the next day and the result is permanent.
Complications of Otoplasty are rare in the hands of experienced and skilled plastic surgeons. Hematoma in the flap area and inflammation if they occur should be treated promptly with drainage and oral antibiotics.
At the Cosmetic Derma Medicine Medical Group's specialized Plastic Surgery Clinic, Otoplasty is a routine procedure for plastic surgeons and local anesthesia is used in most cases, and complications are practically zero.
