The Otoplasty In Melbourne

Request Consultation

The otoplasty in Melbourne is quite common, but not all patients are fully informed about the ins and outs of the treatment. If you have been looking into otoplasty procedures but want to find out more about it, please read the information about the otoplasty in Melbourne, provided by Dr Lanzer and his associates.

What Is An Otoplasty Procedure?

An otoplasty in Melbourne is a treatment that can reduce the appearance of protruding ears. It is sometimes referred to as “ear pinning”, as it appears the ears are being pulled towards the side of the head.

There are several reasons why patients may choose an otoplasty in Melbourne. The ears may be sticking out too far from the head or the ears could be too large compared to the size of the head.

An otoplasty can be executed under local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia. If a general anaesthetic is used for the otoplasty, Dr Lanzer or one of his associates will explain what this entails and answer any questions you may have.

Ear surgery can be executed on children as well as adults. However, the ears must be fully grown before surgical procedures can be executed on the ear cartilage. Also, the procedure requirements may vary from patient to patient too. So, it is recommended to book an appointment with The Dr Lanzer Clinic to determine if otoplasty surgery is the right choice for you.

Otoplasty Before and After

What Happens During My First Otoplasty Consultation?

During your first consultation, you will be able to speak to your cosmetic surgery about the procedure in more detail. During the consultation, the cosmetic surgery will also have a thorough look at your medical history. He will specifically look at past ear infections, which could have an influence on your recovery.

The initial consultation for your otoplasty will also include a physical exam. During this exam, the cosmetic surgery will evaluate the size of the ears, their shape and overall symmetry. AT this stage, he may also take some pictures that will be added to your medical record.

During your consultation, be sure to mention the expectations you have from your surgery. Discussing your expectations is important, as it ensures you have realistic expectations from the surgery before you have it. Your surgeon can also explain the surgery in more detail and answer any questions you may have.

Can Otoplasty Go Wrong?

A cosmetic surgery always carries risks, this includes a procedure such as the otoplasty. While the procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic and can reduce some of the risks that are associated with general anaesthetic, there are some common side-effects patients should be aware of.

What Are The Risks Of Otoplasty In Melbourne?

Any type of cosmetic surgery is subject to possible complications; this includes infection, bruising and swelling. While The Dr Lanzer Clinic will do everything in their power to reduce the chance of these complications post-surgery, patients must be aware of the possibility of complications and be able to recognise them if they should occur. If a patient believes they are encountering a complication from their surgery, they should contact the Dr Lanzer Clinic as soon as possible.

Does Otoplasty Last Forever?

The otoplasty is permanent. However, there are some rare cases where the patient may return for an additional procedure. If you are worrying about the permanency of your results, be sure to speak to Dr Lanzer or one of his associates for more detailed information.
