Prof Wilson performs Ear Surgery Otoplasty Cosmetic Surgery to set prominent ears closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. The ideal distance between the head and the ear is 11-17 mm, and this is what Prof Wilson achieves during the surgery. Ear surgery can also replace ears lost due to accidents or correct ear problems. Some ears have strange shapes, such as cupping or pixie-shape, and these also can be corrected by surgery. Other deformities include awkward folding, unusual smallness or absence of natural folds and curves. Surgery also improves large or stretched earlobes or lobes with large creases and wrinkles.
For the most part, Prof Wilson performs ear Surgery on children between the ages of 5 and 8. Ears are almost fully grown by age 5, and the preschool age is optimum for surgery. This spares the patient any teasing and ridicule from other students in school. Dr Wilson performs Ear surgery also on adults, and finds no additional risks associated with ear surgery on an older patient.
During your consultation, Prof Wilson will discuss your surgery, its limitations and risks, and discuss your needs and concerns. Dr. Wilson will evaluate your ears, including the skin and underlying cartilage and bone. He will take accurate measurements to detect all the abnormalities in the ear, and compare both sides to identify asymmetry. You may also schedule an additional consultation to view computer imaging so that you can visualize the planned results of your otoplasty surgery.
Ear Surgery Otoplasty involves several techniques. Prof Wilson prefers making a small incision in the back of the ear because cuts there are relatively invisible. Through that cut, he exposes the ear cartilage, and then sculpts the cartilage to bend it back towards the head. He often uses non-removable sutures to shape and sculpt the new ear. Another technique involves making a similar incision behind the ear and removing skin and using sutures to fold the cartilage back on itself. This surgical technique reshapes the ear without removing any cartilage. Sometimes Prof Wilson combines otoplasty with a nose job to match the alignment and harmony of the face.
The Surgical Nurse will usually put a bandage around your head, and you must make sure it stays dry. This means you will not be able to wash your hair until after it has been removed.
Prof Wilson prefers that his patients wear the bandage for 10-12 days, but sometimes longer if needed.
Usually the stitches dissolve on their own within 14 days.
Fortunately, significant complications from aesthetic Ear Surgery Otoplasty are infrequent.
Some of the potential complications include hematoma, changes in sensation, scarring, and need for revisions.
You can help minimize certain risks by following the advice and instructions of Dr Wilson, both before and after your ear surgery.
