- What activities should someone who just underwent lipoplasty avoid?
Am I a good candidate for ear reshaping (otoplasty)?
Johns Hopkins Medicine answeredYou and your doctor will discuss whether you are a good candidate for ear reshaping, or otoplasty. The goal of otoplasty is to surgically correct protruding or deformed ears. Otoplasty will not alter hearing ability. What is important for successful otoplasty is that the ears be in proportion to the size and shape of the face and head.
There are several important factors that you will discuss with your doctor when deciding if this procedure is right for you:
- Skin type
- Ethnic background
- Individual healing rates
If you are considering ear reshaping for your child, it is important that you discuss this procedure and your child's overall health with your pediatrician. Timing is always an important consideration with ear reshaping for children. Having the procedure at a young age is best because the cartilage is very pliable and reshapes more easily. Also, a young child will experience psychological benefits from this cosmetic improvement in his or her face.
Why should I keep my postoperative breast surgery documents?
Be sure to keep your post-operative instructions and paperwork for future reference. This can be very instrumental in the event you require revision surgery at a later date. This information will allow your doctor to understand your prior surgery so that you may receive optimal treatment.
