The Non-Surgical Otoplasty
The Non-Surgical Otoplasty
The non-surgical otoplasty provides patients who suffer from prominent ears with an alternative to ear surgery. It enables a cosmetic surgery to execute an ear correction and alter the ear cartilage, but without implementing any incisions. To learn more about this procedure, please read on.
What Is Non-Surgical Otoplasty?
A non-surgical otoplasty is cosmetic surgery that uses the strategical placement of sutures. Opposed to the surgical correction, the cosmetic surgery does not need to make an incision to alter the position of the cartilage. However, the procedure still delivers long-term effects and can be executed under a local anaesthetic.
The non-surgical otoplasty can be obtained at The Dr Lanzer Clinic throughout Australia, including in Brisbane and Melbourne. If you want to correct protruding ears, please book your initial consultation at The Dr Lanzer Clinic.
What Causes Ears To Stick Out?
There can be a few potential causes for protruding ears. For most patients, the condition is caused by an underdeveloped antihelical fold. It could also be caused by a deep concha, which is the area that pushes the ear away from the side of the head.
Can Ears Be Pinned Back Without Surgery?
A surgery procedure for prominent ears is not the only solution, as Dr Lanzer and his associates also offer the non-surgical otoplasty in their procedure room. While a surgical procedure usually requires a general anaesthetic, the non-surgical option can be done with a local anaesthetic, reducing the potential risks for the patient.
To get a better idea of the possibilities of this treatment, patients can view our non-surgical otoplasty review page, which contains before and after photographs of patients who had the procedure. Of course, patients must always remember that results will be unique to them. So, cosmetic treatments should always be discussed with an experienced cosmetic surgery.
How Much Is Non-Surgical Ear Pinning?
The non-surgical otoplasty cost can be variable from patient to patient. The chosen cosmetic surgery, the complexity of the procedure, and the anaesthetic used can all have an influence on the cost. To ensure you have a full overview of the cost, we recommend taking advantage of the free no-obligation appointment available at The Dr Lanzer Clinic for new patients.

Can Non-Surgical Otoplasty Go Wrong?
Even though there is less risk compared to a surgical otoplasty, every cosmetic procedure has some degree of risk. It is important for patients to understand these risks before they have their procedure. Dr Lanzer and his associates will explain the risks to you before the treatment takes place. However, we also recommend obtaining a second opinion before you obtain cosmetic surgery; this ensures you are fully informed.
How Long Does It Take To Recover From The Otoplasty?
That depends on the kind of procedure you had. For example, the surgical otoplasty may require you to wear a headband and dressings, while the side-effects associated with the non-surgical otoplasty are less obvious. Below, we will cover the recovery process for patients who had a surgical otoplasty.
Patients who had a surgical otoplasty will have the treatment area covered in some dressings. It is important to keep the dressing dry and clean until your follow-up appointment with Dr Lanzer. So, please do not wash your hair until the bandage has been removed fully.
As mentioned briefly already, patients may be required to wear a headband for a pre-determined amount of time. Depending on how well the area is healing, the surgeon may choose the extend or reduce that time. Yet, it is important to listen to the instructions of your cosmetic surgery post-surgery.
Even though you will be wearing a headband, it is important not to sleep on your side while you are recovering; this is also the case for patients who had the non-surgical otoplasty. Sleeping on your side could affect the treatment area negatively and could hinder the overall recovery process. So, be sure to sleep on your back until the treatment area has healed sufficiently.
Patients who had the non-surgical otoplasty can feel a little tender for a couple of days because of the stitches. Any discomfort experienced by the patient can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. If you had the surgical otoplasty, be sure to check with the cosmetic surgery which painkillers are safe for you to take. Dr Lanzer or one of his associates can also prescribe some information on ear surgery if required.
