EAR SURGERY (Otoplasty)
Protruding ears can be corrected by reshaping and resetting them to a normal position. It is recommended that protruding ears are repaired by the age of 5 or 6, by which time the ears have almost reached complete development. After a complete ear examination by our medical ear expert, surgical options can be discussed between Dr.Glusac and the patient, according to patient's wishes.
Ear surgery (Otoplasty) can be performed under local anesthesia in adults, but requires sedation in children. The incision lies at the back of the ear, in order to avoid scar detection. Ear surgery usually takes about one to two hours.
Owing to dr. Glusac's special technique, there is no need for suture removal, which both parents and children appreciate. Moreover, this technique does not leave any scars. With dr. Glusac's special technique a headband is mandatory for ONLY ONE DAY, while with the usual techniques the headband is mandatory for one week.
Note: Otoplasty can enhance your self - confidence. Realistic expectations are an important factor of being happy with the outcome of any surgery. As each patient is an individual, different results can be expected in each patient.
