An otoplasty: Although each person is different, ear reshaping -otoplasty- usually involves changing the shape and position of the ear cartilage. This is done through an incision hidden in back of the ear. Most often sutures are placed to pull the cartilage into a proper shape and to pull the ear closer to he head.

Only for newborns: Ear reshaping or an "otoplasty" is more than just pinning the ear back. The ear is reshaped to conform with the normal ear contours. It is set back, so the ear does not protrude.

Ear symptoms: If there are no other signs or symptoms to suggest ear pathology, I suspect some irritability of superficial nerves in that region. The cause would be obscure but at this time I recommend simple observation as long as an otolaryngologist has evaluated you and sees no other problem.

Check with your surgeon. ...Read more

Not likely to need..: Most often, ruptured ear drums grow back on their own.

However, since one is seeing ENT Specialist, one can rest assured that he/she will do his/her best to preserve one's hearing function. ...Read more

My husband abused me for years hit me hard in the head enough to split it open several times. I had surgery to remove a tumor. Can it come back?
No: Repeated scalp lacerations repaired surgically is not a known contributor to malignancy.
