Otoplasty Ear Surgery / Revison Otplasty.
« on: January 23, 2013, 02:47:42 PM »

This my first time on this forum,

about 6 months ago I had an otoplasty and one of the ears is came out a deformed (telephone  ear) I am very unhappy with this and its something that effects me  a lot... example I can't cut my hair, when  taking photos I always look the other way I went to see plastic surgeon who specialises in ear reconstruction and he told me that he could help me by doing a conchal cartilage graft and V-Y plasty, which he told me consists of cutting out a bit tissue (size of a small coin) and unwiding the fold in the ear.

do you think this is the right technique to use for my condition? (the middle part of the ear is 5 mm closer to the head then the top and bottom of the ear and the cartilage appears to be sharper)

what are the possible risks in this kind of surgery? (can it become worse?)
is this a simple or complicated surgery?
whats the usual outcome of this surgery?

I am very scared\hesitant about this but Its really effecting the way I live... it would mean a lot if you can shed some light ....
