Protruding ears is a condition where the ears stick out more than what is considered normal. This can be a source of self-esteem problems and psychological discomfort for many people, especially children and young people.
Plastic surgery for protruding ears, also known as otoplasty, is a procedure that can correct this condition. The procedure involves shaping and reconstructing the ears to give them a more natural and balanced appearance in relation to the face. Groruddalsklinikken has a team of experienced plastic surgeons who are specialized in otoplasty and have performed many successful operations.
Before you decide to undergo plastic surgery for protruding ears at Groruddalsklinikken, you will first be consulted by one of their surgeons. During the consultation, the surgeon will assess your individual situation and discuss your wishes and expectations. They will also give you all the necessary information about the procedure, including risks and potential complications.
Once you have decided to proceed with the operation, you will be given a detailed plan for the procedure. Otoplasty can be performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s preferences and the surgeon’s recommendations. The surgeon will make small incisions behind the ears to access the cartilage tissue. They will then shape and reconstruct the cartilage using various techniques, which may include removing excess cartilage or suturing the cartilage tissue to create a more natural fold.
After the operation, you will be given instructions on how to care for the wound and your ears during the healing process. It is important to follow these instructions carefully to ensure a successful and complication-free healing process. You may experience some discomfort, swelling and bruising in the area around the ears, but this will gradually subside during the first few weeks after the operation.
Groruddalsklinikken has a dedicated team who will follow you up after the operation to ensure that you receive the necessary care and support you need. They will schedule regular follow-up visits to monitor the healing process and answer any questions or concerns you may have.
It is important to note that plastic surgery for protruding ears is a personal decision, and it is important to have realistic expectations of the results. Although otoplasty can provide significant improvements in the appearance of the ears, it is important to understand that no surgical procedure can guarantee perfection or complete symmetry.
