Ear tubes are tiny tubes that are inserted into the eardrum. They come in several different materials as well as long and short-term configurations. They are made to mimic the natural shape of the ear, and when placed by an ear, nose and throat specialist such as Dr. Taghizadeh, they allow air to flow unobstructed through the ear.
An impacted cerumen occurs when there is a buildup of excess wax in the ears. A small amount of wax naturally occurs in every healthy ear. When this wax builds up in excess, problems occur. If the ear canal gets completely blocked with wax, hearing loss can occur.
A tear or hole in the ear drum is an ear drum perforation. These can be caused by trauma or sickness, and they are extremely painful. Symptoms, aside from pain, of an ear drum perforation, include diminished hearing, and clear or blood tinged drainage. It is important to get treatment for a perforated eardrum quickly as the hole offers a passageway for germs to enter the middle ear, which could lead to an increase in ear infections.
Otoplasty is the reshaping of the outer ear. This surgery is used to correct aberrations in the ear in order to improve a person’s appearance. It can correct birth defects or abnormalities that are the result of injury or trauma. Both children and adults can have an otoplasty for both cosmetic and reconstructive reasons.
