Where will the Otoplasty be performed and how much does it cost?
Otoplasty surgery is performed in first-class hospitals either in the capital of Malaga or elsewhere on the Costa del Sol, where they have excellent operating rooms with all the correct facilities for the most complex cosmetic surgery, and have the most up to date technical advances which are managed by highly qualified professionals.
Determining the price of Otoplasty can be a complex process, as it depends on various factors, including the patient’s physical characteristics, the hospital selected, and the extent of the problem being addressed. These variables result in variations in the costs of the surgery, such as the resources used during the procedure, such as operating room time and the professionals involved, including the surgeon’s fees. Therefore, it is not easy to offer a fixed price and cases must be studied on a case by case basis for each patient. However, the starting price for Otoplasty is typically €1,900.
What type of scars does this type of surgery leave?
The visibility of scars resulting from Otoplasty will depend on the extent of correction required. In the majority of cases, the incision to reshape the cartilage is made behind the ears, so the resulting scars are practically invisible. Dra. Maribel Ruiz will strive to achieve the most natural and aesthetically pleasing outcome for every patient, ensuring a seamless result that enhances their overall appearance.
What is the postoperative period like and how long does the recovery take?
Following surgery, the patient will be provided with a compression bandage to secure the ears to the head, which must be worn for two to three days without removal. After this period, the bandage will be replaced with a plush or elastic bandage to prevent any accidental movement that may affect the outcome of the surgery.
That bandage must be worn continuously for 24 hours a day until the stitches are removed, which is typically after about two weeks. After that, the bandage can be used just when at home or sleeping.
Recovery from the procedure typically takes 2-3 days, after which, patients can resume their normal activities. Once the stitches are removed, patients can return to normal life, including participating in sports, after two to three months.
The definitive results of Otoplasty are seen as soon as the inflammation and swelling subsides, which decreases throughout the postoperative period. Typically, patients can expect to see the end result six months after the procedure.
