Otoplasty (Bat Ear Correction) Brisbane
Otoplasty is a procedure that is performed to set prominent ears back closer to the scalp.
Otoplasty may take about one to two hours to perform, although complicated procedures may take longer.
In most cases, ear surgery will leave a faint scar in the back of the ear that will fade with time. There will be no scars in front of the ears. Even when only one ear appears to protrude, surgery is usually performed on both ears for a better balance.
The patient’s head will be wrapped in a bulky head bandage immediately following surgery to promote the best molding and healing. The ears may throb or ache a little for a few days, but this can be relieved by medication. Within a few days, the bulky bandages will be replaced by a lighter head dressing similar to a headband. Stitches are usually removed in about 1 week, with some deep sutures dissolving over a few months . The majority of patients will return to usual physical activities within 2 weeks. There is no reason for people to tolerate the embarrassment of prominent ears.
Fee: From $4000 (Guide only. Please make consultation with doctor for assessment. Initial consultation fee $65)
