Otoplasty? Brad Pitt Went For It…
What is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty is a surgery of the ear also know as ear pinning. It’s a procedure that is designed to help reduce the protrusion of the ears away from the head.
In fact, the surgery for elf ears procedure can yield results that drastically improve your facial composition. It’s such an effective change that many celebrities have actually opted to have it done as well, including Brad Pitt.
Otoplasty can be performed on children and adult patients. From ear pinning to size reduction and deformity correction, this modest outpatient procedure can have a dramatic impact in the overall aesthetic appearance of your face.
Otoplasty is used successfully for each of these situations. Regardless of the procedure, patients have been pleased with the long-lasting improvements to their appearance offered by ear surgery.
Reasons for Considering Ear Surgery:
- Bring proportion to the face if the ears “stick out” too much.
- Correct folded ear tips (lop ear).
- Reshape long or offset earlobes.
- Enhance very small ears or other congenital defects.
- Fixing an injury, including the loss of an ear.
General Procedure For Ear Pinning
Ear surgery is commonly performed under general anesthesia for children and local anesthesia for adults. Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Galitz performs ear surgery in his office-based surgical suite at Aventura Plastic Surgery in Aventura, Florida, or in a nearby outpatient facility. Surgical times average one hour and either local anesthesia or IV sedation may be used.
The standard otoplasty procedure brings the ears closer to the head. The incision is located on the back of the ear. There are many different techniques which may be used depending on the patient’s particular problems. The cartilage of the ear may be sculpted, often with the use of sutures, to achieve a more desirable shape, or a piece of cartilage may be removed to improve the ear fold. In most cases, both ears are treated to achieve the best balance.
The recovery after Otoplasty takes approximately seven to ten days. After the surgery is completed, large bandages will be wrapped around the head in order to secure the ear in place and assist with the healing process.
The stitches are removed after one week, at which time most patients are able to return to work or school. Exercise and more strenuous activities are often able to be resumed after two weeks.
