More on Otoplasty & Ear Plastic Surgery:

Otoplasty is the plastic surgery of the ear. This can mean many things. It can range from the total reconstruction of a child’s ear when there is no ear present to the minor correction of a torn ear lobe from an ear ring mishap. Any procedures that are done to reshape or reconstruct the ear can be referred to as an otoplasty.
Microtia repair is the plastic surgery of a congenital deformity where some part or the entire ear is missing. The two main approaches are the use of one’s own cartilage or the use of implants, most commonly medpor. This technique is often employed at a very early age (as early as 5-6 years of age when the ears reach near adult size and shape) for those that have access to this type of skilled surgeon. Most of the times for major microtia repair, rib cartilage is preferred over other cartilage sources. Medpor is favored because of its ability to be incorporated into the patients tissues and it’s eventual behavior like one’s own tissues. Microtia is often also employed for adults that were not able to fix their ears at an early age.
Torn earlobes are a relatively common occurrence that can occur from ear ring injuries. The most common approach is to excise the hole and surgically close it. You can often re-pierce the ears in 3-6 months. There are more complicated ways to fix the earlobes but these options are ultimately less than optimal. This surgery is often done under local anesthesia.
The correction and reconstruction of gauged ear lobes often require flaps of earlobe tissue that are rearranged to reconstruct the earlobes. Re-piercing of the earlobes can occur 3-6 months later depending on the healing.
Prominent ears require treatment of the base or concha of the ears and also the reshaping of the anti-helix of the superior part of the ear. Other techniques can be incorporated to bring the earlobes and superior base of the ear closer to the head. Most incisions are situated behind the ears. Thorough knowledge of the different techniques in this situation allows for incorporation of longer lasting option and adjustments. The earliest age for this is usually considered to be also at the age of 5-6.
Otoplasty Revision and correction of previous otoplasties are often even more difficult and require the knowledge of all aspects of otoplasty to allow the surgeon to adjust to varying presentations of less than perfect ears from previous surgeries. Reconstructive techniques that are used in other areas of plastic surgery are often called upon in these cases.
