The main aim of this procedure is a proper earlobe modeling, as well as correction of any eventual ear deformities.
In this procedure many different techniques and methods are used, but the decision about the choice is always made by the surgeon during the consultation with the patient.

The most common reasons for ear correction surgery are mostly prominent ears or their asymmetry.

Ear correction procedure is usually advised to younger people (children over 7 years old) due to the reason that their earlobe is still vulnerable to any modifications. Ear correction can be also performed in adults, however, the recuperation is not as easy taken as by children. ,
The patient is obliged to wear (mainly at night) an elastic bandage, which closely adheres to ears, therefore speeding up the process of achieving the desired effect.

Generally local anesthesia is used, however, it happens that general anesthesia is offered to the patient (in rare cases). In either case, this decision is discussed and made during medical consultation between the patient, anesthesiologist and the surgeon.
This type of the procedure does not require any longer recuperation which allows the patient to return to his daily duties after only a couple of days.
The surgery and patient's hospitalization take place within only one day. In case of any complications, the patient stays in the hospital until his full recovery. This decision is made by the surgeon.

Problems that can occur after the ear correction surgery:

  • Bruises;
  • Earlobe infection.

There are scheduled follow up visits within couple of days after the surgery, which is intended to assess patient's health condition and the process of recuperation.

The sutures used for this procedure are absorbable.
