Dr. Branislav Matejic / Ear correction

Ear correction

It is not uncommon for people to have suffered from protruding ears, so-called jug ears, since their childhood.

This phenomenon may occur on one or both sides and can be corrected as early as at pre-school age. But also too large, too fleshy, or deformed ears may affect a person’s self-esteem. Even the loss of an entire ear can be restored through complex reconstructive measures. This operation, however, falls in the category of medically indicated procedures and is therefore covered by medical insurance. Although it is performed by Dr. Matejic as a reconstructive measure, it is not shown here.

In an otoplasty excess tissue behind the auricle is removed. Then the skin on the front of the anthelix fold is removed, and the cartilage is reduced with a highly specialized ear file or weakened with a suitable scalpel and the ear pinned. The special Mustardé suture technique contributes to an aesthetically pleasing overall result. The procedure is performed either under local anesthesia or under general anesthesia and takes up to 1.5 hours. Afterwards a forehead brace should be worn for 10 – 14 days.

An ear correction is nowadays a routine operation and is usually performed on adults as an outpatient surgery under local anesthesia.
