PLASTIC SURGEON ALBERTO AREVALO / FACIAL SURGERY
PLASTIC SURGEON ALBERTO AREVALO / MENTOPLASTY
It is the surgery for the correction of the so-called “big ears” (i.e. prominent ears).
This surgery aims to correct the greater separation of the ear from the skull. This separation causes them to protrude or project far forward, regardless of their actual size.
Otoplasty consists of carving the auricular cartilage, so that it adopts a normal shape. This is achieved through an incision or cut, made in the skin at the back of the ears.
The procedure can be performed at any age, from 8 years old, when the ear has reached more than 80% of its final size.
It is a strictly outpatient surgery that can be performed under local anesthesia, local anesthesia plus sedation or total anesthesia.

It is a surgery with mild to moderate pain, which requires, during the two weeks after surgery, that our patient wears a cap or headband; this is in order to help keep the ears in the correct position, especially at bedtime. It is a strictly outpatient surgery that can be performed under local anesthesia, local anesthesia plus sedation or full anesthesia.
Unlike other facial surgeries, bruising of the ear skin is minimal and swelling is not significant.
There should be restrictions on outdoor activities and sports for 3 to 4 weeks after surgery; however, work incapacity is 3 to 5 days.
As with other surgeries, the final results to establish the benefits of the procedure are appreciated around the 4th week after surgery.
