Aesthetic and reconstructive otoplasty 


In modern plastic surgery, there are two types of ears correction: aesthetic and reconstructive plastic.Aesthetic otoplasty is aimed at creating the desired shapes and sizes of ears that correspond to the ideal proportions and are able to emphasize the attractiveness of your face and naturalness; elimination of small and medium cosmetic defects, etc. 


Reconstructive plastic is a deeper correction of the pinna, aimed at the restoration of the missing parts of the ear, transplant injured areas, elimination of congenital anomalies of the ear, etc. 


Otoplasty procedure and postoperative period

Aesthetic otoplasty    



On average, the surgery to remove the ears defects lasts for 1-2 hours under local or general anesthesia. Otoplasty does not require a long hospital stay – within a few hours the patient is discharged home, after putting the elastic cotton-gauze bandage. 


When aesthetic otoplasty surgeon makes a small incision behind the ear, makes to the desired shape of ear cartilage and fixes its internal seams. At that, the operative scar is completely invisible, as it is located on the back side of the ear.During the next week you will be wearing a special fixing bandage, which can be removed at the end of this period, together with sutures. A few days after the surgery it will be slightly noticeable the swelling and small bruises. You can restore the normal lifestyle in two to three weeks after otoplasty.


Reconstructive otoplasty  



In reconstructive otoplasty the specialist has to restore the ear partially or completely, so the procedure takes a longer period of time and is carried out in three stages.  



The first step: creation of cartilage matrix and its implantation in the subcutaneous cavity (2-6 months post-operative recovery).


The second stage: size correction and position of the ear, creating BTE region.


The third phase: formation of the relief of the ear, ear lobe.  


The entire procedure of reconstructive otoplasty takes 12-14 months (depending on the individual characteristics of the patient), and requires a longer recovery period.
