OTOPLASTY OR EAR SURGERY
Ear reshaping surgery or otoplasty is a surgical procedure used to correct prominent or bat ears.
Ear surgery reshapes the contour of the ear by decreasing its prominence.
It can be performed easily under local anesthesia. The surgery involves an incision behind the ear, the ear cartilage is then accessed and manipulated. The ear is set back to its natural position by applying different sutures.
Otoplasty, ear reshaping or ear surgery cost in Pakistan varies with the ear deformity that requires correction.
The procedure will be illustrated to you in detail and expected post-operative shape during a consultation with Dr Zain ul Abidin and Dr Asma Ilyas.
You will go home the same day but would be required to wear a custom-made head bandage to protect the surgery. After one week sutures will be removed and it is recommended for the patient to wear a headband for 6 weeks.
The first 6 weeks of a baby’s life represents a time that with custom made ear tapes a prominent ear deformity may be resolved non-surgically.
At our clinic (Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery Associates) we perform Otoplasty from 5 years of age as the child can participate and understand what is happening with the surgery and the recovery.
