Facial features form the basis of any good looking person's appearance. Ears too are a part of it. However, in some cases, an ear may appear to be misshapen or protruding. This might have happened during birth or due to a physical trauma in an accident. Though it does not lead to any other medical condition, having such an ear can be physically discomforting. In such cases, an ENT will perform an ear surgery to rectify it. It is also known as otoplasty or a cosmetic ear surgery. It involves reshaping the ear to the desired extent so that a natural look is achieved. Many types of deformity can be treated through this. Some of them include protruding ears, larger earlobes and lop ear (a condition in which the tip folds down and elongates forward). The surgery is also used in treating shell ears - a condition where certain parts of the ear are missing or deformed. An ENT has to be consulted in detail before opting for this surgery. The surgery involves cutting the cartilage which forms the base of any ear. A small cut is made to the back of the ear, and the cartilage is either cut or folded up for getting the desired shape. Then with stitches, the wound is closed and left for the healing process to start. Recuperation period would be around two to three weeks. Strenuous activities should be avoided for a period, and with proper medications, the ear condition can be reversed completely.
