Otoplasty helps get the ears right

Ear pinning is the cure for ears that stick out

Otoplasty ear pinning Charlotte is a facial plastic surgery procedure that can safely be performed on small children. Otoplasty is surgery on the ears, and it is most often performed on small children, since ear protrusion is a characteristic that appears very early in development of a child, and since children are notoriously cruel towards those of unusual appearance. But it can also be performed on adults with no additional risk.

In otoplasty, a small incision is made in the back of each ear. The cartilage of the ears is repositioned so that they lie a little closer to the head. Other parts of the ear cartilage are also sometimes reshaped. Otoplasty can be performed under local or general anesthetic. If the surgery is being performed on a child, general anesthesia is a better idea, so as to allow them to sleep through it.

After the otoplasty ear pinning Charlotte is complete, a gauze bandage should be wrapped around the head like a turban for about five days. This will hold the ears in their new position and allow them to heal there. Stitches should be removed after a week or so. An adult patient can probably return to work in several days.

If you undergo otoplasty, then for the following four weeks you should avoid contact sports or any other situation that may result in an accidental blow or other trauma to the ear. If the procedure is being performed on a child, the child should stay home from school for about a week and return when the bandages and sutures have been removed.
