Ear reconstruction is a type of plastic surgery designed to correct the aesthetic appearance of the outer auricle and pinna after irregularities caused by birth defects, trauma, burns, or skin cancer removal. Good candidates for this type of reconstruction are those patients in general good health with realistic expectations. Your surgeon may advise you to stop smoking and taking aspirin for at least two weeks before and after surgery.
Total ear reconstruction due to birth defect or extreme trauma often involves four stages, performed two to three months apart. Techniques for other common causes of injury, such as laceration, burn, and infected or torn piercings will vary depending on the extent and severity of the injury. Another deformity correction surgery is Otoplasty also known as cosmetic ear surgery — is a procedure to change the shape, position, or size of the ears.
After the procedure, the doctor may request that the patient stays in an outpatient facility to let them heal. Afterward, the individual can go home to recover as long as there is someone who can help them for a few days. During the healing period, the patient may consider some pain or swell around the injured area.
