Course of Treatment
Before actual treatment (ear surgery) a detailed conversation is held as regards the possibilities, limitations and course of therapy.
Of course, children come accompanied by their parents, who must agree to the surgical procedure. Surgery and post-treatment are explained.
In the case of protruding ears, the cartilage is weakened in the region free of folds, and shaped by means of inner seams.
All other malformations (see above) are more complex and require several steps of reconstruction.
In accordance with the malformation, the ear is restored, in multiple sessions in the case of complex malformations.
After the surgical procedure, a headband must be worn round the clock (except when showering) for one week, and in the evening and at night for three more weeks.
The band is meant to intercept the restoring forces of the ear cartilage. In the first week, the patient is not socially presentable. Sports can be commenced carefully about three weeks after the surgical procedure.
Post-treatment depends a great deal on the respective procedure and must be discussed individually.
Follow-up checks take place in our wellness center located in Germany one day after surgery, then after another 7 days, 14 days, 6 weeks and 12 weeks.
