Ears also contribute to feminine beauty. A woman who sees her ears as not well proportioned or excessively protruding may dislike herself and feel insecure about being together with others. In many cases, trying to cover the defect with hair may not be enough or uncomfortable. Thankfully, however, they do not have to abandon themselves to the idea of having to live with a part of the body that does not make them happy because there actually is a solution: otoplasty.

It is a surgical technique to correct the size and projection (adherence to the head) of the ears, restoring the natural appearance they deserve. In this way also the face regains the balance and harmony that usually characterize it.

The procedure

A first thorough examination allows me to assess the patient's state of health and to identify the best solution for her. But also, on the one hand, I can take in consideration the needs and wishes expressed, and on the other, consider the realistically achievable results.

In addition, I explain the possible risks that can occur even during simple surgeries like this and try to allay any doubts that come to mind.

Otoplasty, which usually takes about two or three hours, is performed under general anaesthesia. The small incisions affect the back of the auricle, so the scars will be microscopic and practically invisible.

When waking up, it is possible to see the presence of bruises, customary after each operation, but in this case, being a simple operation, they disappear in a few days. Finally, after a week spent with a bandage to protect the ears from possible infections, I meet the patient again for the removal of the stitches and to appreciate together the results of the surgery: proportionate ears, beautiful to see and in harmony with the whole face.

Frequently asked questions

Doubts or questions? It's only natural to have any! Below I try to answer the most frequent ones. For further clarification you can write to me at any time, I will answer as soon as possible.
01. Is it necessary to stop smoking before the operation?
Yes. In order to promote rapid recovery and reduce the risk of infection, smokers should refrain from smoking, starting at least two weeks before the operation.
02. Is it not recommended to take medication before treatment?
It is not recommended, but there is a possibility that it is necessary to stop taking them.
03. Is otoplasty used to solve exclusively aesthetic defects?
No, it is not. In some cases this type of intervention is used to resolve defects due to traumas or removal of small tumoral masses.
04. How can ears be protected during convalescence?
To protect ears it is good to use an elastic protective band and sleep on the back to prevent pressure.

My Approach

In my many years of experience, and thanks to the patients I have met, I have developed an approach which I use for each surgery.

The first appointment

It is the basis of my aesthetic renewal process, in which I like to establish a direct relationship with my patient.

The surgey

I operate with my patient's wishes and achievable results in mind to ensure an excellent result and a swift post-operative course.

After the surgery

I will see every patient personally in their follow ups, monitoring the patient until his complete recovery. Every one of my patient will have contact with 24 hrs for any advice and I give a life time care.
