Ear Surgery – Otoplasty Gold Coast & Brisbane
Otoplasty can enhance the position, size and shape of your ears.
Ear surgery on the Gold Coast is commonly recommended for children that are six years or older. Ear correction before a child enters school helps to remove potential stress from schoolyard bullies teasing children with less than perfect ears. Adults can also get corrective surgery on their ears as long as a person’s health is good there is really no restrictions to getting Otoplasty.
The Otoplasty is performed by Dr. Scamp, during the procedure he takes the cartilage of the ear and reconstructs it and places it in position, so the ears are closer to the head. This can be achieved by placing incisions behind the ears, and any scars will be nearly invisible due to the natural skin creases.
Post-surgery, patients need to wear a bandage for one week to make sure that the ears heal in
their new corrected place. Strenuous exercise and contact sports need to be avoided for several weeks. The patient will also need to wear headbands at night for approximately one month.
