What Is Otoplasty?

Otoplasty or Ear shaping surgery is a cosmetic surgical procedure which reshapes the patient’s ears to make them proportionate, symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing.

An Otoplasty, informs Dr Siddharth Sakhiya is recommended to combat the medical condition of Macrotia (overly large ears), or protruding ears (one or both ears in different degrees) or Microtia ( poorly developed ears) or general dissatisfaction with the shape or looks of one’s ears.

Dr Siddharth Sakhiya specialises in reshaping the patient’s ears in such a way that they look completely natural and fit in perfectly with the patient’s facial structure.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Otoplasty?

Celebre Aesthetics, Surat lays down some fundamental criteria which can make a person an ideal candidate for an Otoplasty. Even though this is a simple, cosmetic surgery, Dr Siddharth Sakhiya prioritises patient safety and therefore does not accept candidates who do not fit into the following list:

  • An overall healthy individual with no life-threatening illnesses, or untreated chronic ear infections,
  • The age of the candidate should be 5 years and above. Since the ear needs to be fully developed before this surgery.
  • The candidate should be a non-smoker or ready to quit smoking for as long as the surgeon prescribes him to. (both before and after the surgery)
  • An individual who is unhappy with the shape of his ears and has realistic expectations from the surgery.

Celebre Aesthetics, Surat would like to bring an important point to your notice here that the candidate could be either male or female since this surgery is gender-neutral.

What To Expect At The Consultation With Dr Siddharth Sakhiya?

Dr Siddharth Sakhiya’s one on one consultations are deep, detailed discussions where he asks the patient about their expectations, desires, goals, understands their medical history and explains the procedure and risks to them.

You will be asked about the problems you are facing due to the misshapen ears. The doctor will also ask you if you are facing any issues with your hearing due to the shape of your ears. Pictures of your ears will be taken from multiple angles as part of your case history.

Our consultations also involve noting down your medical history and any allergies that might affect the surgery. We end the consultation only after the patient and Dr Siddharth Sakhiya are on the same page and there are no doubts in the mind of the patient.

What To Expect Before The Otoplasty?

Since Otoplasty is a minimally invasive procedure there aren’t too many preparations necessary before the surgery from the patient’s perspective. Dr Siddharth Sakhiye may ask you to undergo a couple of routine blood and urine tests in order to establish basic parameters for the surgery.

But other than that, no special preparation is required from the patient’s side.

How Is The Otoplasty Performed At Celebre Aesthetics?

The procedure for an otoplasty or ear reshaping surgery at Celebre Aesthetics, Surat begins with the patient being put under general anaesthesia or local anaesthesia with intravenous sedation. Dr Siddharth Sakhiya ensures that the patient feels no discomfort or pain throughout the surgery.

The next step is making incisions. Dr Siddharth Sakhiya, the Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, makes incisions based on his evaluation as to how much reshaping of the ears is necessary. Incisions may be made on the back of your ears (this reduces the visibility of the scars) or even inside the creases of the ears.

Once the incisions are made the excess cartilage and skin will be removed. Dr Sakhiya will reshape the ears to be proportionate to the rest of the face and will ensure symmetry on both sides.

Finally once the cartilage is in a desirable position he will fasten it with internal stitches. After this, the incisions will closed with sutures.

Otoplasty at Celebre Aesthetics, Surat generally takes upto 2 hours.

What Is The Recovery Process For Otoplasty?

Once the procedure is complete Dr Sakhiya will monitor your vitals for a couple of hours. You will have to stay in the clinic till you are completely alert and your vitals are okay.

After the otoplasty your ears will be covered with bandages. This is necessary for them to heal properly. Over the next few days you will experience discomfort and pain. Please note that this pain and discomfort is minimal, so nothing you need to worry about. Dr Siddharth Sakhiya will prescribe some pain medication for a few days till the discomfort subsides.

You will be advised not to sleep on your sides, so as to avoid any change in the position of the ears. In your first follow-up visit after the surgery (typically a week after the surgery) the surgeon will remove the bandages and evaluate the ears. He will note the progress made and watch out for any abnormalities.

Your ears will remain slightly swollen and reddish for the next 2-3 weeks since they are in a process of healing. Dr Siddharth Sakhiya will ask you to wear a headband which covers your ears for the next two to six weeks. This will stop your ears from being pushed forward when you roll in your sleep.

Apart from this, Otoplasty does not require any other special recovery measures. You may resume work after your first follow up visit. But please follow all the instructions given by Dr Siddharth Sakhiya to the T.

What Are The Risks Associated With Otoplasty?

Even though Otoplasty is a straightforward cosmetic surgery, it does have risks. It is vital that as a patient you are aware of the risks before you make the choice to undergo the surgery.

Following are the rare risks that may arise out of the surgery:

  • Anaesthesia risks

  • Ear asymmetry

  • Visible scarring

  • Problems due to the sutures

  • Overcorrection

  • General dissatisfaction over the looks of the ears.

Dr Siddharth Sakhiya ensures through his operating technique that these risks do not become a reality. Celebre Aesthetics is one of Surat’s most reputed Plastic Surgery practices.
