Overview – Ear Surgery
Ear surgery, or Otoplasty (also known as ear pinning or corrective ear surgery), is usually done to place prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. The result is a cleaner, smoother and more natural appearance to the overall symmetry of the head.
The external ear (pinna) is composed of a delicate and complex framework of shaped cartilage that is covered, on its visible surface, with thin, tightly adherent, hairless skin. Although of small area, the surface anatomy of the external ear is complex, consisting of the pinna (the auricle) and the external auditory meatus (auditory canal).
Otoplasty is the term for prominent ears which describes external ears (pinnae) that, regardless of their size, protrude from the sides of the head. The abnormal appearance exceeds the normal head-to-ear measures, wherein the external ear is less than 2.0 cm, and at an angle of less than 25 degrees, from the side of the head. Ear configurations of distance and angle that exceed the normal measures, appear prominent when the man or the woman is viewed from either the front or the back perspective.
The corrective goal of Otoplasty is to set back the ears so that they appear naturally proportionate and contoured, and have them harmoniously set back without evidence or indication of surgical correction. Therefore, when the corrected ears are viewed, they should appear normal, from the:
– Front perspective. When the ear (pinna) is viewed from the front, the helical rim should be visible, but not set back so far (flattened) that it is hidden behind the antihelical fold.
– Rear perspective. When the pinna is viewed from behind, the helical rim is straight, not bent, as if a “letter-C” (the middle-third to flat), or crooked, as if a hockey stick” (the earlobe is insufficiently flat). If the helical rim is straight, the setback is harmonious; that is, the upper-, middle-, and lower-thirds of the pinna will be proportionately setback in relation to each other.
– Side perspective. The contours of the ear should be soft and natural, not sharp and artificial.
The procedure can take from two to four hours. There will be some degree of discomfort following surgery but fortunately little pain. Swelling occurs but usually begins to subside in several days. A degree of swelling may continue for longer periods, but eventually diminishes.
