OTOPLASTY GENEVA : A HELP FOR A BREAKING COMPLEX.
Many people suffer from mockery because of detached ears. Our aesthetic center in Geneva practices otoplasty which will help you in this problem.
Let us treat this operation in 11 basic points:
1. Where does the malformation come from?
The detached ears are characterized by three frequently associated malformations:
A lack of plication of the cartilage (the anthélix) resulting in an absence of relief, an hypertrophy of the cartilage (the conch) which accentuates the projection of the ear, a retro auricular angle too important.
The purpose of this operation is to correct these anomalies.
2. How old is this intervention?
The adult can be operated at any age, the child can be operated from 7 years. It is necessary to wait until the growth of the ear is correct, moreover, the local anesthesia is more easily tolerated after 7 years. However, it is best to avoid the period of puberty to promote good healing.
The surgery request must be a personal approach regardless of age. Children can perfectly express their desire for intervention given the mockery they are subjected to. The surgeon will ensure that this is not a purely parental request.
3. How is the consultation conducted?
During the consultation, our surgeon takes into account the deformities of the ear as well as your motivation to perform this operation. Your medical record will then be put in place, in addition it will have to be completed by photos that will help during the intervention.
4. How to prepare the intervention?
The day before the procedure, the hair must be washed and knotted for the girls.
The patient should not have taken aspirin or anti-inflammatory 10 days before surgery.
Depending on the type of anesthesia, a fasting can be requested.
5. What is the method of anesthesia?
Several anesthesia is possible for the surgery of the detached ears. These include pure local anesthesia, anesthesia with neurolept-analgesia or general anesthesia.
The mode of anesthesia will be appreciated by our surgeon according to the age and the tolerance of the patient.
6. What is the technique for performing otoplasty geneva?
Our surgeon will explain the procedure during the appointment. In addition, the operation is on an outpatient basis, the outing will be done the same evening or the following morning.
7. What are the follow-ups?
Moderate pain may be present, it is calmed by analgesics. After surgery, bruises are present on the ear for several days and edema (swollen ear).
The swollen aspect of the ear to the removal of the dressing disappears quickly. Otoplasty is not a painful operation if you take enough painkillers (paracetamol for example).
8. What are postoperative care?
The helmet-shaped dressing is removed the next day for adults, around the 3rd day for children.
A retro-auricular disinfection is then performed daily by the patient.
Eight days after the dressing was removed, the retro-aural aesthetic surgery was removed.
9. Can I have complications with otoplasty?
Several complications can occur exceptionally, such as a hematoma requiring a new hemostasis, an infection (chondrite) that will require a new surgery or simply an antibiotic treatment.
The retro-auricular scar is usually very fine, but it can grow very large when it is in a keloid mode. As with any surgery or anesthesia, there may be other exceptional or unexpected complications. Our surgeon will tell you this one during your interviews.
10. When can I see the result?
The result will be appreciable between one to three months. At this stage, the results are in final principles. A slight asymmetry may persist after surgery depending on the anatomy of origin and the resistance of the cartilage.
Retouching is rarely necessary.
