Ear Lobe Alteration
Although protruding ear lobes are not a health problem they can be a great mental handicap to many people.
Operation of stuck out ears at children is the most suitable to undergo around the age of 6 to 15 when the child is able too cooperate with the surgeon. Really small child are not suitable because the ear lobe is not fully developed. there is not age limit when it comes to adults. It is only a matter of their decision to change their appearance.
The principal of the surgery is to loosen the skin on the back surface of the ear, severing the insignificant muscles of the lobe, thinning the cartilage by a special surgical laser and making the required reshaping. Attaching the lobe to the correct spot is done by several inner stitches with the assistance of laser. The advantage of the method provided by us is a low level of bleeding and swelling in the area of surgery and short time of recuperation.
The patients can get back to their common daily routine within 10 days from the operation. The bandage is removed the 3rd to 5th day after the surgery and then for other 5 days a special head band is worn. 10 days later the stitches are removed and patients no longer have to wear any compression during the day although for the night it is recommended to have an elastic band for the following 3 weeks in order to avoid some unwanted micro injuries cause while sleeping. The patient can return to his daily routine and sport activities in about 1 month time after the operation.
