Otoplasty (Ear Aesthetics)
Otoplasty is a surgical procedure related to ear aesthetics and is usually applied in cases where the curvature of the ear is insufficient. This type of operation aims to achieve an aesthetic and proportional ear appearance. The size, shape or position of the ear can be aesthetically disturbing and can negatively affect a person’s self-confidence. Otoplasty is an effective method to solve such problems.
Aesthetically, otoplasty surgery provides a more harmonious and balanced appearance of the ear. This is usually achieved by small incisions behind the ear and reshaping the cartilage. After the operation, the ears are in a more harmonious proportion with the face, which positively affects the overall facial aesthetics.
The operation is usually performed under local anaesthesia and may take 1-2 hours. The healing process is usually quick; most patients can return to normal activities within a few days. However, full recovery may require several weeks.
For individuals considering otoplasty, a detailed consultation with the surgeon is very important. During this consultation, full information is given about the patient’s aesthetic expectations, possible risks and the healing process. Thus, the patient has a clear idea of what to expect from the surgery, which increases the overall success of the procedure and patient satisfaction.
