Otoplasty

otoplastica-uomo

Evenin men, ears appearance contributes to their beauty. Having protruding or bad proportioned ears can generate insecurity, embarrassment and, consequently, a fear of being in contact with others. It is not pleasant for a man to live in a body that is not considered beautiful. Fortunately, there is a remedy for this condition: otoplasty.

It is that surgical technique that can solve problems related to the aesthetics of the ears. It corrects their size, adherence to the head and gives them the natural look they deserve. In this way, even the face regains the balance and harmony that characterize it.

The procedure

A first thorough examination allows me to assess the patient's state of health and to identify both the best solution for him taking into account the expressed wishes and the realistically achievable results. I explain the possible risks that can occur even during simple procedures like this one and answer all the questions in order to resolve any doubts.

The otoplasty procedure, which usually takes between two and three hours, is performed under general anaesthesia. I make small incisions on the back of the auricle so as to leave microscopic and practically invisible scars.

When waking up, some bruises will be present, customary after each operation; as it is a simple operation, these will disappear in a few days. Finally, after a week spent with a bandage that protects the ears from possible infections, I meet the patient again to remove the stitches and appreciate the results of the operation: proportionate ears, beautiful to see and in harmony with the face.

Frequently asked questions

Doubts or questions? It's only natural to have any! Below I try to answer the most frequent ones. For further clarification you can write to me at any time, I will answer as soon as possible.
01. Do you have to be fasting to support the operation?
Yes, since it is general anaesthesia, you should not eat or drink for about six hours before the operation.
02. Is it necessary to stop smoking before the operation?
Yes. In order to promote rapid recovery and reduce the risk of infection, smokers should refrain from smoking, starting at least two weeks before the operation.
03. Is otoplasty used to solve exclusively aesthetic defects?
No, it is not. In some cases this type of intervention is used to resolve defects due to traumas or removal of small tumoral masses.
04. How can ears be protected during convalescence?
To protect ears it is good to use a protective elastic band and sleep on the back to prevent pressure.
