This surgery is not as simple as it may seem. The goal is to move the ears towards the head while keeping them natural looking, not too irregular and not too flat.
The incisions are hidden behind the ears. The cartilage is carefully reshaped and repositioned with multiple sutures.
Anesthesia without general anesthesia
In general, local anesthesia with sedation is used, for adults. However, for children, a general anesthesia is necessary.
After the surgery
Following surgery, the ears may not match one another exactly. Normally, both ears are rarely alike.
ne or two of these sutures may later be rejected by the body and are easily removed, but the shape of the ears usually remains unchanged.
As for any surgical intervention, complications are possible but not common, such as injection, bleeding, excessive scarring, sensory changes, cutaneous necrosis, asymmetry, numbness, pain, rejection of sutures, etc.
