No two people's ear appearance can be same. It has been established that every ear has minuscule differences not visible to the naked eye. There are certain cases where these differences tend to be seen to a larger extent. Commonly known as misshaped ears, the condition can be physically daunting as the natural appearance of a face is hampered by it. Otoplasty or a cosmetic ear surgery is performed in such cases where the physical look of the ear is deformed in certain ways. These conditions might have happened during a child's birth or might have happened due to an accident or an injury. The most common conditions include the ear protruding sideways, very large earlobes and lop ear (a condition in which the tip folds down and elongates forward) and shell ears - a condition where certain parts of the ear are missing or deformed. An ENT has to be consulted before opting for such a surgery, and then the possible risks can be ascertained too. The revision ear surgery treatment is performed then to restore the ear to its natural shape. The cartilage is cut, and it is increased or decreased in size depending on the conditions. Then the cut is closed up with stitches. A cut will be made by the ENT to the back side of the ear for reprocessing the cartilage. Bandages are applied and the healing process takes place in two to three weeks. Strenuous works have to be avoided during this period, and after the recovery period, normal activities can be resumed. General check-ups with the ENT are also advisable during the healing period.
