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.
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.
