Ears Surgery

    The genetic information is what determines the form and size of the
 ears, the surgical correction of these morphologic details like big,
 prominent ears or in handle is called OTOPLASTIA with which we can
 do corrections and mold the ears to place them backward and to
 improve the aesthetically acceptable aspect
.

 


BEFORE THE SURGERY

    Your surgeon will realize a preoperative evaluation to determine conditions of the tissues for the surgery as well as
 the general conditions, will request a series of examinations to value your general state and derterminar if you are in
 conditions to surrender to this surgery
.

    It is recommended to abstain from smoking at least two weeks before the procedure, as well as to avoid to take
 anticoagulative medication or for circulation for two weeks and anti-inflamatoarios as aspirin, Naxen, Ibuprofeno at
 least one week before the surgery
.

ANESTHESIA

    This procedure can ralizar under local anesthesia with or without sedation.

THE SURGERY

    The procedure consists of realizing an incision for behind of the ear, by this incision the cartilages are molded with
 the use of sutures to fix them backward and to lean them to the head
.

RECOVERY

    The surgery is ambulatory, that implies that you don´t need from
 hospitalization when it is realized as the only surgery, after a few hours of
 recovery after the surgery we will decide your discharge if it is in
 condiciónes of continuing your recovery in house, your first visits of review,
 will be to the 4 to 6 days, time for which it will value the retirement of
 sutures
.
 



 

    The following visit will be two weeks to
 evaluate the evolution and to do the pertinent
 recommendations as for the care of the scar,
 later the reviews will be every two weeks up
 to completing three months of the surgery.
 The time of recovery to do daily activities in
 house will be two to three days, for labour
 activities it will be seven to ten days and to
 do exercise and activities more extenuantes
 will be until the month. The time to evaluate
 the final score without information of infla-
 mmatory process and with the maturation of
 the scars it will be to the two to three
 months.

CARES

    We will recommend you a serie of care after the surgery, certainly there
 is recommended a diet without irritants and high in proteins and fiber, care
 of the wounds is recommended, there will be indicated you the use of an
 elastic band by seven to ten days, as well as to take medicines anti-
 inflammatory and antibiotic, we will indicate you take care of the skin and
 the scars by means of massages and special creams for it.

    It is recommended to avoid the horizontal position for two weeks, for what you will have to sleep with pillows in
 such a way that the face is always at level higher that the rest of the body, as well as to avoid exhibition prolonged to
 the Sun by four weeks.

COMPLICATIONS

    The surgical and anaesthetic risks always exist, the possibility of incidents during the surgery depends on diverse
 factors, like age, general state of health, presence of chronic-degenerative illnesses as diabetes, hypertension,
 cardiac illnesses, anemia, etc; duration of the surgery, and factors as ingestion of medicines earlier mentioned or
 nicotinism; we determine these risks in the evaluation pre-operative and with the analyses and pre-operative studies,
 if we detect some anomaly that increases these risks we will inform you, as well as the possibility of not doing the
 surgery if these risks are very high.

    The most frequent complications are: Haematoma, scare abnormal, Asymmetry, etc. your surgeon will explain you
 and will clarify any doubt with regard to these possible complications.

    The anaesthetic complications are slightly possible in healthy persons, the incidence of complications is minor
 with the local anesthesia that with the general anesthesia and they are in direct relation with the time of anesthesia,
 for what the risks increase lightly if the time of surgery increases on having done several surgeries in the same
 procedure, these complications can be from reaction anafiláctica, shock up to hipoxia cerebral and death,
 nevertheless the above mentioned present to themselves with very small frequency from 1 to 2 of every 2000
 surgeries of this type. Therefore you have to know the risks that you traverse with this surgery, thanks to the
 preoperative suitable evaluation, the possibility of satisfaction is with much, bigger than the risks.
