A patient can rarely, but sometimes develop a blood clot on the ear.  This is often not a huge risk, and can be resolved by your doctor or cosmetic surgeon, by extracting the blood with a needle, failing that it may eventually deteriorate itself by dissolving. There is also a risk of a patient developing an ear infection in the cartilage of the ear, which could potentially cause scarring and raised scar tissue to develop.  Ear surgery infections such as these can often be treated with antibiotics.  Surgery will generally not be required for this type of complication. At your initial free consultation with your cosmetic surgeon.  he or she will prepare you by explaining to you what you can expect from the ear surgery procedure.  They will also recommend you on how best to prepare for the ear reshaping surgery procedure.

The Ear Reshaping Surgery

Ear reshaping surgery usually lasts approximately 2-3 hours. Of course if there are complications, then the procedure will last longer depending on what the issue is. One of the most common ear surgery techniques, requires the surgeon to make a minute incision at the back of the ear.  The ear cartilage is then exposed at this point.   The Cosmetic surgeon will then carefully mould and reshape the ear cartilage to suit your needs and requirements.  If needed the surgeon will continue to bend the ear backwards to the head.  Occasionally, the surgeon will remove a larger piece of cartilage to provide a more natural-looking fold when the surgery is complete.

In most instances, it is possible that ear surgery can leave behind a faint scar in an unnoticeable part, at the back of your ear.  This will fade over time. Cosmetic surgery is often performed on both ears, even if only one ear needs correcting.  This is to create a more even and balanced look post surgery.

 

Returning to normal post ear surgery

Patients are usually up and about within a few hours post ear reshaping surgery. Some people like to stay over night in the cosmetic surgery hospital until the grogginess of the general anaesthetic wears off. A bandage will be wrapped around a patients head immediately following ear corrective surgery.  This will encourage the ear to mould in the right way and heal as best as possible. It is common to suffer from throbbing and mildly aching ears for a few days post ear reshaping surgery.  If the pain becomes too much, it is advisable to visit your doctor as you may require medication to help combat the ache.

Stitches are usually removed as soon as possible. More then likely, they will dissolve, within a week. Any activity in which the ear might be bent should be avoided for a month or so. Most adults can go back to work about five days after surgery. Children can go back to school after seven days or so, if they're careful about playground activity. You may want to ask your child's teacher to keep an eye on the child for a few weeks. Cosmetic Ear Reshaping helps combat other ear problems.

Lop ear can also be helped with cosmetic surgery Lop ear is when the tip of the ear appears to fold over itself with a slightly forward bend. Cupped ear, and shell ear, can also be corrected with the help of ear corrective surgery.   Ear reshaping surgery can also help improve large or drooping earlobes, even or lobes which appear to have large wrinkles.  These days cosmetic surgeons have the ability and skill to structure and build new ears.  These are usually appreciative for those born without any ears or as wound repair for those that lost their ear(s) in an accident / incident.
