Ear Correction in Berlin

For those affected, protruding or strongly asymmetrical ears are often a burden. Since the problem usually exists since birth and there is no chance of natural improvement, ear surgery is often performed in childhood. However, many adults who want to have their ears fitted in Berlin also make their way to a plastic and aesthetic surgeon. Different techniques are available depending on the age of the patient. As a general rule, a comprehensive analysis always precedes the recommendation of an operational correction.

Ear Correction for Adults

Ear Correction for Adults

In case of protruding ears or ear deformities, earplasty in adults, also known as otoplasty, is helpful as a small measure to eliminate larger problems in the patient’s appearance and self-perception. Although teasing is generally less common in adults, in such cases, an assessment of the patient’s own perception or looks is sufficient to justify an earplasty. Patients have often been toying with the idea for years. Personal circumstances, lack of time due to professional obligations, and also financial considerations can deter those affected from an operation at a young age. Nevertheless, most of the Berlin patients are younger adults or, in some cases, children.

Changing Children’s Ears

Very young people benefit particulalry well from an earplasty. Teasing on the playground is not rare to hear from the affected persons or their parents. For this reason, health insurance companies are willing to pay for the treatment of children. In this situation it is worthwhile for parents to apply for a certificate together with the plastic surgeon in order to receive a health insurance rebate for their child’s ear pinning. Earplasty, also known as otoplasty, can correct protruding ears on babies and enable affected children to develop their personality without any obstacles.

Ear Correction Methods

Otoplasty, also known as ear pinning surgery, reconstructs the incorrectly or partially present cartilage framework of the ear, thus causing the ears to move inwards towards the skull. An incision is usually made behind the ear so that it cannot be seen from the front. Subsequently, the cartilage is reinforced and duplicated with appropriate non-resorbable sutures to perform the ear pinning plastic surgery.

This way the ear contact plastic surgery can be performed successfully and with a permanently stable result. In rare cases the otic pit is also overpriced. This can also result in the ears sticking out. The protruding ear tilts so far forward that from the front it looks like a telephone. During th ear pinning plastic surgery in Berlin, the derotation of this cartilaginous scaffold must also be carried out in order to achieve a fully harmonious result.

The ear correction is carried out using the suture method, without incisions or scars. The ear is reshaped with the help of sutures inserted into the ear’s cartilage. In most cases, this technique leads to a satisfactory result in patients with protruding ears. Non-dissolving threads are used to pull the ears towards the head and hold them in position with a few stitches on the back of the ear muscles. If ear lobes protrude and the cartilage allows it, sutures can also be added there. As a rule, you are immediately able to resume social activities again after this minimally invasive method.

Before and after the Operation / Experiences

In principle, the amount of post-operative treatment must be adjusted in proportion to the amount of work involved in the operation on the ears. With a minimal amount of work involved in an ear correction or ear placement, the follow-up treatment is also clear and easy to implement for the patient. In general, a good and fast healing process is likely.

The fitting of the ears or other ear corrections are usually performed on an outpatient basis at the Sinis Clinic in Berlin. They can be performed under local anaesthesia and light sedation (twilight sleep) or even while awake. Patients can then leave the clinic after a short observation period. In principle, patients can of course stay in the clinic for observation overnight if they wish. Whether in the clinic or at home, patients are all asked to sleep with a slightly raised upper body to avoid bruising and swelling of the ears after the ear correction and to speed up the healing process.

The healing process differs and by extension the possibility to wash your hair after the ear surgery, depend on the method of treatment. As a rule, you should expose your ears to as little water as possible and wear a cap rather than wash your hair during the healing process. However, this should be possible again after the thread has been pulled.

First and foremost, if severe pain occurs after the ear surgery in Berlin, it can be treated well with painkillers. Some patients generally complain of moderate pain a few days after the ear correction, which gradually subsides over time. However, the severity and length of time the pain lasts also depends on the method and individual circumstances.

If you have had an ear correction using the thread method, you do not need to wear a headband after the ear surgery. After an otoplasty, patients are required to wear a headband for several weeks (4-6 weeks depending on social obligations) after the ear correction. If possible, the headband should be left on around the clock to keep the ears in the position they will be placed in after the ear pinning plastic surgery. It is not necessary to buy a headband after the ear surgery, as it is included in the price of the ear correction.

At the Sinis Clinic Berlin we have pinned numerous ears with satisfactory results in babies, children and adults. From our experience, an ear correction is always performed without any problems and with little pain. It is a small procedure with great effects.

Before & after pictures of our patients prove the great effect on the appearance and above all the satisfaction of our patients. The result is visible immediately after the ears are pinned. Any swellings usually subside quickly, which means that the patient is quickly able to return to social activities. If an ear correction is performed with the suture method, this before and after effect is even visible immediately after the operation

In principle, you do not need to prepare very much before such an operation. You should only exclude all ear infections, so a medical examination in advance would be useful. Get a soft, wide headband – you will need it to wear over your ears after the surgery. You should also avoid nicotine as much as possible for about two weeks before the treatment to improve the oxygen supply to the skin and thus speed up wound healing.

You should not take acetylsalicylic acid or other antipyretic drugs, rheumatism medications, or high-dose vitamin E during this time, as they delay blood clotting. This can cause secondary bleeding with damage to the skin and cartilage. For the same reason, it is also advisable to avoid sleeping pills and alcohol. If you have an ear infection immediately before surgery, the procedure must be postponed to avoid unnecessary surgical risks.

Procedure of the ear correction Berlin

In most cases, protruding ears are caused by a missing or insufficiently pronounced protrusion of the cartilage on the front of the auricle. In the course of the ear correction, the ear cartilage is reshaped and fixed in the new position. The procedure is usually performed on an outpatient basis and under local anesthesia, with an average operation taking about 50 minutes to an hour per side. With the conventional method, a small incision is made on the back of the auricle, through which the ear cartilage is remodeled and created.

First, the skin has to be loosened so that the ear cartilage can be exposed, then it can be brought into its new shape and fixed with the help of precise and fine stitches. Sometimes it is necessary to partially remove the cartilage. Additional, targeted incisions in the ear cartilage allow it to retain its new shape over the long term. The incision in the skin is then closed again. All that remains is a small scar, which is hidden behind the ear and therefore invisible. After the operation you will be given a bandage to protect the stitches on your ears.

As a rule, ear correction is performed in our clinic using the gentle thread method, in which a special thread is woven into the ear cartilage with a fine needle. This braid of threads will align and shape the pinna without any skin incisions, leaving no scars other than punctures. The operation is performed under local anesthetic so you can see the changes in the ears. You'll also have a say in the optimal shape and position of the ears — once you're happy with the new ear orientation, it will lock it in place, completing the process.

In this way, one side is completed first, and then the other. The auricle correction using the thread method is less risky compared to the conventional procedure with skin incisions behind the ears. Only slight swelling occurs postoperatively, so that you do not need a head bandage after the treatment. However, you can wear a wide, soft headband to hide the swollen ears. You will also be able to resume your work and other activities without restrictions.

Risks and complications of an ear correction in Berlin

Basically, the ear correction itself is an uncomplicated operation that usually runs without problems. However, despite the greatest care, isolated complications can occur immediately after the operation. However, an initial disturbance in the sensation of touch is normal and only temporary - it will completely disappear after a few days. Every surgical procedure requires the severing of fine nerve tracts in the skin, which can lead to loss of sensation, especially when it is cold. These discomforts will gradually subside over time, but in some cases may be permanent. If you experience severe pain after the auricle correction, the causes may be a bandage that is too tight or a bruise. This must then be clarified by a medical check-up, since a bruise may have to be punctured. In rare cases and with a corresponding predisposition, a so-called keloid can develop - a scar growth that is characterized by a bulging, thickly swollen, discolored, itchy and, above all, painful scar. Pressure bandages and cortisone injections can initially help here.

Subsequent surgical removal of the keloid is also possible, although this involves the risk that the growth may recur. In addition, infections of the wound can occur in individual cases, as a result of which wound healing is delayed accordingly. However, this can be quickly managed by taking antibiotics and adhering to hygiene regulations. Sometimes the disruption in blood supply can damage the skin or cartilage, although the risk is higher if there has been previous surgery on the outer ear. In addition, due to a rare incompatibility of the suture material, the sutures can be rejected, which means that the auricle can protrude again.

As a rule, the cosmetic results after an ear correction are very good, but you should note that no two ears are the same - neither before nor after the operation. For example, the cartilage structure of one ear can be constructed differently than that of the other and can protrude further. In addition, the auricle can be deformed by uneven scar formation or unequal restoring forces. In such a case, another operation is needed, correcting the results.
