Procedure for ear surgery

Otoplasty surgery is performed widely for reshaping either one or both ears. It is one of the most commonly performed procedures. Patients who are unhappy and dissatisfied with the orientation, shape or size of their ears can now alter their looks by choosing to undergo this procedure. This surgery also includes earlobe reduction as well as cauliflower ear surgery for removing and re-contouring excess cartilage and skin. Given that ears are prominent, many patients experience boost in self-esteem and confidence once their ears achieve more desirable appearance.

Ear reconstructive and pinning surgery

Usually, both ear reshaping and pinning surgery is performed under a local anesthesia with a sedative for adults. In case, the surgery is being performed on children, general anesthesia is given. While performing ear pinning surgery, the cosmetic surgeon makes an incision right behind the ear for exposing the cartilage. Then the cartilage is reshaped and excess skin is removed. Lastly, the surgeon repositions the ear more closely to the head and then the incision is closed with non-removable sutures or stitches.

The entire ear surgery procedure lasts for nearly two to three hours on the basis of the extent of the surgery. In case a patient has protruding ears, ear pinning is used for positioning the ears closely to the sides of the head. Ear pinning combines removing skin from the ear’s back, scoring methods and cartilage sparing. This fusion of methods helps the cosmetic surgeon to create the ideal positioning and shape of the ears.

There are several methods used for accomplishing ear pinning surgery while performing otoplasty. The surgical method that the physician selects depends on the amount of the correction the ears of the patient need. The different techniques of ear reshaping and pinning can be categorized into two groups – cartilage scoring and cartilage sparing.
