How it works ?
Otoplasty: definition and objectives
Otoplasty is a surgical procedure that aims to correct defects in the ears (malformation of the hem of the pinna, malformation of the conch, malformation of the helix). In most cases, it is performed on both ears (bilateral otoplasty) and sometimes unilateral.
Otoplasty is in great demand by people who suffer from this problem and want to have ears with normal shapes, for example 15,000 operations are performed in Turkey each year. Thus, this operation is addressed to all people (adults at any age and children who are more than 7 years old).
The ear is a very delicate organ, so choose an experienced and competent surgeon for this mission. A first meeting between the patient and his surgeon during which he determines the motivations of the latter, he establishes a complete diagnosis as well as a photographic assessment. Depending on the patient's profile, the surgeon decides the type of anesthesia (local, vigilant or general). On the day of the operation, he must fast for at least 6 hours before the operation.
The duration of the intervention varies between 20 minutes and 1 hour.
After the operation, the patient may experience pain that can go away with painkillers and anti-inflammatories.
A cessation of sports activities, work and studies during the 7 days following the operation are strongly recommended.
There is now a new and innovative procedure which consists in using an implant inserted under anesthesia which corrects the prominence of the ears in only 15 to 20 minutes.

The ear implant produces consistent results with less discomfort and fewer side effects than traditional otoplasty surgery. The Earfold implant reshapes the patient's auricle using a simple procedure, placing it under the ear involving a small incision.
