What is otoplasty?
Deformation of auricles is the reason of numerous complexes and lack of self-confidence both for men and women. Worst consequences such defect has at children’s age, leaving serious psychological trauma. Thanks to otoplasty it is possible to change a shape of auricles, and also restore them in case of various deformations (congenital or acquired). Otoplasty will allow to get rid of a serious aesthetic shortcoming and gain self-confidence.
Modeling of auricle cartilage and cutting of excess skin behind ears is done to correct protruding ears. Restoration of the auricle is a much more difficult operation which is done in several steps for 10-12 months, starting from implantation and finishing with a formation of a new ear. At the request of the patient, it is possible to change auricle shape and size.
Local anesthesia, but at the request of the patient general anesthesia is possible (for example for children)
