Otoplasty in Valencia
Otoplasty is a surgical technique that allows to correct prominent ears (also known as earlobe or prominent ears) and reduce their size, greatly improving the appearance of this distinctive feature.
Ear deformities can present in different ways, and at different levels of intensity, with the most common being ear detachment. It is estimated that one in six people may have some form of ear shape alteration.
During the surgery, the ear cartilage is reshaped. Through an incision that is positioned behind the earlobe, excess skin is trimmed and the ear is repositioned in its new position. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia and on an outpatient basis (without having to stay overnight in the hospital), and its approximate duration is one and a half hours. After surgery, a slightly compressive bandage is placed that will be kept until the removal of stitches, approximately 7 days later.
