Macrotia and Otoplasty

What are Macrotia and Otoplasty

Known as ear enlargement, Macrotia causes a congenital deformity that makes the ear grow vertically. Some people seek a solution for this problem after being teased or bullied, especially during childhood. On the other hand, Otoplasty corrects excess spacing between the ears and the head, causing the infamous protruding or bat ears. In both cases, the patient can undergo aesthetic surgery, which is simple and results in remarkable improvements in social situations.

Medical Travel Brazil has partnered with some of the best surgeons who, in addition to being experts and researchers in the area, are nationally and internationally renowned for the quality and exclusivity of the care provided and precision in surgical results.  Here we explain the real benefits of the procedure and how we can improve your quality of life with a highly safe and warmly supported medical trip by our team of Concierges, Doctors and Nurses.

Who is a good candidate for macrotia and otoplasty surgeries?

Ear surgeries, macrotia and otoplasty, are indicated for people who suffer because of the size of their ears or the distance between the top of the ear and the head. In some instances, aesthetic issues interfere with social interaction, and the derogatory nicknames that arise during the school years are the main reasons behind the search for ear reduction surgeries.

How is the macrotia (ear reduction) surgery performed?

Ear reduction surgery is less common, but it is indicated whenever the ear size needs to be reduced for aesthetic reasons. In such cases, the macrotia surgery aims to reduce the entire auricular floor, reducing the size of the ear itself.

How is the prominent ear surgery, otoplasty, performed?

Otoplasty is performed with a small incision in the back of the ear, repositioning the auricular floor and bringing the cartilage that fixes the ear closer to the head. The result is very satisfying, providing comfort and improving the patient’s self-esteem.

Discover the step-by-step of ear reduction and reshaping surgery:

  • 1. Anamnesis:

    An appointment with the healthcare professional is scheduled to assess and propose the ideal treatment.

  • 2. Clinical tests:

    The doctor will ask for blood tests and an electrocardiogram, which are required before the surgery.

  • 3. Contraindication:

    If the patient shows any health problem, it will be necessary to treat it before the surgery can be performed.

  • 4. Hospitalization and surgery:

    The patient is admitted and sent to the operating room. The procedure usually takes two hours and is performed under local anesthesia.

  • 5. Post-surgery:

    Macrotia and otoplasty, ear reduction and reshaping surgeries, are simple procedures and recovery is easy. After the operation the doctor will prescribe an elastic band that must be worn for a week. Still, full recovery occurs between the third and fourth days. For perfect results, the patient must sleep with the band on for a whole month.
