Otoplasty - Ear plastic surgery
Otoplasty is also known as ear plastic surgery. Prominent ears are a very
common disorder which is easily treated with local anaesthesia. You should
be aware that otoplasty is included among the simple procedures of plastic
surgery provided the surgeon is fully experienced.
Unilateral otoplasty with deformity only on the left ear
Otoplasty and rhinoplasty performed at the same surgical time
Otoplasty in Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome
Asymmetrical otoplasty addressing a different problem on each ear
Otoplasty on the upper end of the ear to obtain the symmetry
To ensure symmetry following the patient's desire.
Otoplasty procedures are always performed with the cooperation of the patients and according to their desires.
Otoplasty on prominent ears mostly characterized by prominent lobs (en face photo) and deformation of the ear helix (Profile photo)
Otoplasty on a patient with normal concha on the right and hypertrophic on the left ear
The Molding otoplasty technique was performed on the right ear with the normal concha and the Cutting Otoplasty technique was performed the left one in order to achieve symmetry and a natural result. The above techniques represent two different schools of otoplasty and each one is applied according to case features.
