Ear Reshaping (Otoplasty)

Pioneering the Future of Sophisticated
Ear Reshaping in London, UK

Otoplasty (ear reshaping) What is it?

Otoplasty, also known as ear surgery or ear correction, is a cosmetic intervention designed to enhance the shape, position, and proportion of the ears. Its primary goal is to address structural defects, with the aim of achieving improved aesthetic appeal and symmetry.  

 The procedure is especially adept at correcting protrusion caused by external ear development issues, simultaneously addressing associated malformations. Through Otoplasty, ears can undergo resizing, reshaping, symmetrisation, and repositioning closer to the head, significantly influencing overall facial harmony.  

What Are The
Benefits of Ear
Reshaping

Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a cosmetic procedure with various benefits for those who are self-conscious about their ears.  Ear surgery can improve how the ears look by fixing deformities, reducing size, improving symmetry, or bringing the ears closer to the head, reducing their protrusion. This boost in appearance can increase self-confidence and improve overall self-image. 

Correcting Birth Defects 
Ear surgery can fix congenital deformities like microtia or prominent ears, significantly impacting a person’s quality of life and self-esteem. 

Repairing Injuries 
It can also repair traumatic ear injuries, such as torn earlobes or injuries affecting the ear’s shape or position. 

Better Glasses Fit 
Ear surgery improves the fit of eyeglasses by reducing ear size or moving them closer to the head. 

Improved Hearing 
In some cases, ear surgery can enhance hearing by correcting deformities affecting the ear canal or eardrum shape. 

Permanent Results 
Ear surgery provides long-lasting results, positively impacting a person’s quality of life and self-esteem. 

Minimal Scarring 
Incisions are usually hidden behind the ears or within natural creases, resulting in minimal visible scarring. 

Quick Recovery 
Most patients can resume normal activities within a week or two after ear surgery, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules. 

Ideal Candidates for
Ear Reshaping

  • Age : The optimal age for otoplasty is between 4 and 14 years when ear cartilage is soft and easy to reshape. However, the procedure is possible at any age, with our clinic performing it on patients over 18.
  • Ear Development : Successful otoplasty requires fully developed ears with well-formed cartilage and a defined earlobe.
  • Overall Health : Candidates should be in good overall health without underlying medical conditions that might increase the risk of complications during or after surgery.

The ideal otoplasty candidate is dissatisfied with their ears’ shape, size, or positioning. This dissatisfaction could stem from a congenital disability, an injury, or personal preference. For instance, individuals may seek otoplasty to address ears that protrude too far or to correct asymmetry. 

  • Realistic Expectations : Candidates should have realistic expectations, understanding that while otoplasty can enhance ear appearance, it won’t achieve perfection. Some scarring is expected, and final results may take several months to appear fully.
  • Mental Health : Emotional stability and a positive self-image are important. While otoplasty can be transformative, it’s not a cure for low self-esteem or body dysmorphic disorder.

Before your Otoplasty surgery, it’s crucial to prepare adequately. Discuss your medication and vitamin usage with Dr Bizrah, particularly those affecting blood clotting. Smokers should quit at least two months before surgery, while maintaining optimal health through a balanced diet is advised. Trust Dr Bizrah for comprehensive consultation or pre-surgery guidance. 

Ear Reshaping
Procedure

Experience top-quality Otoplasty surgery by Dr Bashar Bizrah. His procedure, performed under local or general anesthesia, ensures precision and safety. The surgery typically takes 1 to 2 hours, with customized cases requiring up to 3 hours. The procedure involves incisions strategically placed behind or within the ear, followed by necessary cartilage adjustments. Otoplasty does not impact hearing and can even be performed on children aged seven and older. 

The surgery

The surgery is performed under general or local anesthesia, as appropriate. Typically, an incision is made behind the ear, in the natural skin crease, where visibility is less likely. This allows unparalleled access to the underlying ear cartilage, minimizing visible scarring. Dr Bizrah proficiently reshape, remove, or add structure to the cartilage, creating an aesthetically pleasing contour and position. Critical attention is paid to symmetry, ensuring both ears complement each other and the patient’s facial anatomy. 

Once the desired structure is achieved, the incisions are closed with fine sutures. A dressing is then applied to protect the area and promote healing. Post-operative care is an integral part of the journey, and patients are given clear instructions on managing discomfort, maintaining hygiene and optimizing recovery. 

Recovery & Downtime

While recovery time is minimal, patients may experience temporary swelling and bruising due to the dressing. The duration of recovery depends on the extent of surgery and individual healing. Typically, patients can return to work or school within a week but should avoid strenuous activities for 4-6 weeks. Antibiotics may be prescribed to prevent infection. Your surgeon will provide tailored recovery instructions.
