Bat Ear Correction – Plastic Surgery Procedure

Plastic surgery can be used to correct a protruding or deformed ear. Children prefer general anesthesia. Bat ear correction involves making a football-shaped incision in the crease behind your ear. Then, the skin is removed and the cartilage is exposed. The helix and anti-helix folds of your ear are then recreated. Most commonly, otoplasty involves the use of sutures to hold the cartilage in position and bring the top portion of the ear closer towards the head.

The second stage of ear surgery is to move the entire ear closer towards the head. This is done by weakening a section of the cartilage. The incisions are closed and the ears covered with a dressing. The entire procedure for cosmetic ear surgery should take approximately an hour and a quarter. A patient undergoing otoplasty should be able return to their home within one day.

After ear plastic surgery, the bandages will be replaced by a lighter dressing within days. External stitches will be removed in one week. Adults can return to work in five days, while children can go back to school in seven. Children should not have to be careful when they engage in activities that could cause damage to their ears. Patients undergoing otoplasty should refrain from activities that could cause the ear to bend for more than a month.

Otoplasty risks

Cosmetic ear surgery has very low risks, but there are some potential dangers.

  • Overcorrection of ears which puts them too close to head.
  • Keloid is a thick scar that grows bigger than the original. This is more common in African-Americans.
  • A hematoma is a localized swelling caused by an accumulation of blood in the cartilage of your ear. Otoplasty has a low risk of developing hematoma.
  • Infection of the cartilage in the ear.
  • The sutures can be loosening, which could cause the ear back to its original position.
