An otoplasty: Although each person is different, ear reshaping -otoplasty- usually involves changing the shape and position of the ear cartilage.

I would like to know whar can I do to pin my ears back without surgery?

As an adult, nothing: In infants, the cartilage is soft enough that the ear can be held in a more desirable shape or position with tape; as the child matures, the cartilage becomes more rigid and maintains this shape and position. Unfortunately, this does not work as an adult. Otoplasty is a simple and effect method to correct the shape and position of the ear.

I don't know.: Ask your surgeon. What was the lag between his last exam and the day of tube removal? There are several kinds of ear tubes, and this determines the procedures regarding removal.

Are dog ears after mastectomy common? Is it a serious surgery?

Are dog ears after mastectomy common? Is it a serious surgery?

Uncommon: If by "dog ears" you mean an area of gathered skin near the corner of an incision, then I'd tell you they are uncommon. They can be an eyesore and occasionally be irritated by contact with garments. The operation to fix them is not a big one, but all operations are serious. My guess is that you've already been through a lot. If the dog ears are bothering you, talk to your surgeon about fixing them

Hello.: Hello. I can't diagnose your girlfriend's condition. I also don't know what her surgery was for. From the stand point of chinese medicine, the ear is a microsystem of the rest of the body. The body is represented by an upside down homonculus in the ear. Different organs and parts of the body are represented on different places on the external ear. It is not uncommon to have flaking or discoloration in parts of the ear that correspond to the involved body parts. For instance a doctor friend had flaking of her ear in the area that represents her elbow. In talking to her - she had chronic tennis elbow. This may or may not help to explain her flaking.
