Some individuals may be dissatisfied with how their ears look like; it could be its size, shape and orientation. Others may have obviously misshapen, protruding or abnormally large ears. Dr. Joseph Russo caters to men, women, children who would like to improve the appearance of their ears through a Massachusetts otoplasty.
During the Procedure
By and large, an otoplasty by Dr. Russo could last for 2 to 3 hours. Youngsters are often placed under general anesthesia while adults are often placed under a local anesthetic coupled with a sedative.
The incision is often made behind the ears, exposing the cartilage and later repositioned depending on the desired appearance. The incision is typically closed down with non-removable sutures or stitches. Otoplasty could be either be unilateral or bilateral.
On a whole, you will most likely be able to recover from otoplasty after a week of the procedure. During the first few days, you will be instructed to consistently wear a bandage around your head. This will ensure that ears are healed in their new position.
