Otolaryngologists treat medical conditions in the head and neck area, usually ear, nose, and throat. However, patient needs often go beyond medical conditions. Some people are unhappy with the shape of their nose, with a bump or unusual size or shape, and some people are unhappy with the shape of their ears, be they asymmetrical or prominent.
Children and adults with otapostasis may be teased about their "bat ears" and may also lack confidence in the look of their ears because they stick out or their bumpy nose. Plastic surgery, including otoplasty or rhinoplasty, is an option for the ears or nose. However, patients may prefer a less-invasive option to adjust the shape of their ears or nose to a more standard appearance. Whether your patient's ears need reshaping due to a congenital disorder or suffered trauma during an accident, you can help them feel more attractive and boost their self confidence.
If you are wondering how to "fix" prominent ears, one alternative to otoplasty is the use of ear implants such as the Earfold® Implantable Clip System by Allergan®. This innovative ear implant adjusts the shape of the ears, and how much they stick out from the head, with a minimally invasive treatment. The device is made of nitinol, which is highly elastic, and is coated with 24-carat gold. After you insert this curved device, under local anesthetic, it springs into shape. This creates or enhances the antihelical fold to adjust ear shape and position. Since the absence of the antihelical fold is the cause of most cases of ear prominence, this device may be able to help many of your patients, although it may not be suitable for those whose ear prominence is due to a deep conchal bowl.
Using a medical device like Earfold®, only takes about twenty minutes and is suitable for children as young as seven. Although traditional ear pinning may be performed under local anesthetic, or more frequently general anesthetic, the procedure can take two hours with up to six weeks of recovery. In comparison, ear implants are a much less invasive and quick solutions with a short recovery time and minimal bandaging. Using implants, allows patients also have the option of choosing their ear position before surgery. If your patients are concerned about having plastic surgery to correct their ear shape, these devices are a great otoplasty alternative.
