What Is Otoplasty?

Ear reshaping or Otoplasty is designed to reshape and/or re-sculpt the ears.

During your initial cosmetic consultation in Manchester with Plastic Surgeon Dr. Abel Mounir, you will have the opportunity to explain why you feel that the shape, position, and projection of your ears are bothering you. You will express your expectations and your desired aesthetic outcome. .

During an ear reshaping, Dr. Mounir will restore the natural position and shape of your ear(s) through a small cut behind your ears This Otoplasty can improve many common ear deformities by re-shaping or removing some of the ear cartilage and/or by using stitches to keep your ears in the new shape. Correcting even mild deformities or aesthetic concerns can have a profoundly positive impact on a person’s appearance and self-esteem.

What Are The Causes Of Prominent Ears?

There are more or less three common causes of prominent ears. These anatomical deformities can be seen alone, but often they do also occur in combination. These causes are:

  • Underdeveloped antihelical fold:If the concha has an exaggerated angle with the bone behind the ear, the ears can stick out noticeably.
  • Prominent concha: If the concha has an exaggerated angle with the bone behind the ear, the ears can stick out noticeably.
  • Big Earlobe: Large and oversized earlobes cause the lower part of the ear to stick out more.

How Is The Ear Reshaping Done?

Otoplasty usually does produce a natural shape by pinning back the ears to a more natural position and respecting the balance of facial features. During the ear reshaping surgery, Dr. Mounir corrects the shape of the protruding ears by restoring the fold that is located inside the rim of the ear.

The Manchester facial surgeon will make the incision behind the ear. Sometimes incisions on the front of the ear, then he will do some cuts within the external fold of the ear to hide them. Often Dr. Mounir uses internal sutures to keep the new shape in place. Post-operatively the patient is discharged home in a protective soft dressing, which will be removed seven days after surgery. Patients are asked to sleep in a headband for three months.

Who Is A Suitable Otoplasty Candidate?

The board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Mounir can adequately diagnose the anatomic deformity causing the malposition of the ear. Thus, prospective patients should contact Dr. Mounir to arrange a consultation with the Liverpool/Manchester cosmetic surgeon, so he can assess and discuss their surgical options. If you are suitable for otoplasty surgery, he will advise you on an appropriate surgical plan to meet your expectations.

Generally Speaking, You Are Suitable For Otoplasty If:

  • You are older than six years old.
  • The look of your ears is overly large, sticking out or/and uneven.
  • You are physically and mentally healthy, and you have a positive self-image.
  • You understand the limitations of the surgery, and you have got reasonable expectations.

What Does Otoplasty Cost?

The final cost of otoplasty includes the fees associated with the plastic surgeon, the anesthesiologist, and the operating room, as well as your COVID 19 test if necessary.

To plan and establish the total cost of your surgery, Dr. Mounir will need to consult you to understand the reasons for your cosmetic pathology (why your ears are prominent).
