Protruding ears are usually operated through a scalpel incision, through which the cartilage is retracted. However, this incision can end up causing some bleeding, bruising and swelling. Even if these are not significant side effects, they can be avoided through the use of surgical laser.
How does laser-assisted surgery correct protruding ears?
As mentioned above, the incision that is traditionally made with a scalpel is instead made with laser. Therefore, we minimize the possibility of bleeding. The remaining stages of the operation include the classical cartilage arrangement. The only difference from classical otoplasty is that laser replaces the scalpel.
Advantages of laser-assisted surgery
The possibility of bleeding is minimized, which translates into an easier operation and postoperative comfort. Preventing swelling and bruises will not improve only postoperative comfort, but also the recovery time.
No bleeding means no hair band to close the surgical scar. This is a satisfying result for some patients. Furthermore, as recovery will be very fast, the patient can quickly go back to their normal life.
Is there a downside to laser-assisted surgery?
We have not yet observed any negative side effect of laser-assisted prominent ear surgery, and there are no proven side effects or disadvantages. We follow-up every patient and correct any complaints with revision surgeries.
Is the pricing different for ear surgery with or without laser?
We do not reflect using this technology to our prices. The procedure will be shorter and more comfortable to apply, but this does not change the price. Laser-Assisted Cosmetic Ear Surgery
How long will the results of laser-assisted ear surgery last?
Our success rate in protruding ear surgery is 98%. It is true that we have patients that come to us with some protrusion, even if very rarely. If our patient still trusts us, we will resume treatment with a revision surgery. Most of the time, the outcome will be permanent and will last for life.
Will the operation be painful?
The operation will be performed under local anesthesia. Therefore, the patient will not feel any pain during the operation. We will provide the patient with painkillers after the surgery to prevent any postoperative discomfort, provided that the patient follows the doctor’s advice and directives.
Can laser-assisted surgery be applied to each patient?
This technique can be used for every patient of all ages, young and old alike. Surgical laser can be used instead of the traditional incision methods.
