Can I have ear pinnaplasty for a third time? And will it keep my left ear back?
Doctor Answers 3
Complications create setbacks, but a third revision is typically possible.
I am sorry to hear about your complication. It would be important to learn from your physician if you have permanent or absorbable sutures in place, especially since you had a prior infection. this will be relevant wherevery you end up treating it
An attempt at resetting the left upper ear is not unreasonable. Complications do happen, so be honest with your plastic surgeon about your feelings, but do not loose faith in him or her if you feel he is treating you well.
of course, a fresh start may be preferred by the patients, in which case seek out others.
good luck to you
3rd time pinnaplasty
Even at this stage, it is very unlikely for your nose to be pinned back with time (as recovery goes), therefore, if you want to do a revision, it can actually be done as soon as possible. For a more permanent solution, more cartilage work and fixation will be needed.
