Tympanoplasty Surgery in Lucknow

Ear surgery can be performed to treat a variety of problems such as hearing loss, the unappealing aesthetic appearance of the earlobe, etc. The ear is divided into 3 parts- inner, middle and outer ear. Generally, outer ear includes only the ear lobe and outer ear surgery is performed to improve the shape, position, proportion and overall aesthetic appearance of the ear.
On the other hand, middle ear surgery is performed if there is a problem in the hearing function. Common ear surgery procedures that can be performed to improve hearing include myringoplasty, ossiculoplasty, tympanoplasty, and mastoidectomy.
Among these, tympanoplasty is the most common and effective surgery for hearing loss due to a ruptured eardrum. In case you have a hearing problem, you should contact an ENT doctor near you for treatment.
Pristyn Care is associated with the best ENT specialists in Lucknow to help provide flawless ear surgery to all patients and relieve all their hearing problems.

Tympanoplasty Treatment - Diagnosis and Procedure

Diagnosis of hearing loss

Before selecting a treatment for hearing loss, a proper diagnosis is necessary to determine the cause and severity of the ear problem. Common diagnostic tests that are performed to diagnose hearing problems are:

  • Physical examination: Your doctor will physically examine the ear canal with a light to look for possible causes such as earwax accumulation, inflammation from an infection, structural issues, etc.

Your doctor may also perform a whisper test. The doctor will cover one ear to see how well you hear words and other sounds at different volumes. There are also some mobile apps that help perform these hearing tests.

  • Tuning fork tests: A tuning fork can be used to detect hearing loss and determine where the damage is present in the ear. 
  • Audiometer tests: Audiometer tests are performed to determine what is the quietest sound you can hear. 

Surgery for hearing loss

There are mainly four types of ear surgeries to correct hearing loss:

  • Myringoplasty: A myringoplasty is performed to repair a hole in the eardrum by replacing the tympanic membrane with a graft membrane from somewhere else in the body.
  • Ossiculoplasty: Ossiculoplasty is the reconstruction of the middle ear ossicular chain which has been disrupted or destroyed to restore the transfer of sound/vibrations through the middle ear.
  • Tympanoplasty: Tympanoplasty is performed to repair a ruptured eardrum to improve hearing or stop recurring ear infections.
  • Mastoidectomy: A mastoidectomy is a surgery for reshaping/restructuring the mastoid bone to remove diseased cells or to treat hearing loss.

Once you have been diagnosed, your surgeon will help you prepare for your surgery. Ear surgery can be performed endoscopically or openly. Generally, after endoscopic surgery, there is a small, barely noticeable scar in front of behind the ear. The surgeon will perform the required corrections and then close the incision with small sutures.

How long does it take to recover from tympanoplasty?

Complete recovery after a tympanoplasty takes 2-3 months. The stitches are removed about a week after the surgery, and you can return to your usual activities within 2 weeks of the surgery. However, you may experience slight tinnitus and muffled hearing for a while.

After the surgery, you should avoid the following to improve recovery:

  • Sneezing very hard
  • Swimming or diving
  • Lifting weights or strenuous physical activities
  • Being hit in the head 
  • Playing a musical instrument like (trumpet, clarinet, trombone, saxophone, etc.) that requires blowing
  • Air travel
  • Showers
  • Sudden/jerking head motions
  • Blowing nose too hard

You should avoid any strain or pressure in the region to ensure there are no problems during your recovery period. 

How to improve recovery after tympanoplasty?

At home, you can follow the given tips to improve your recovery after a tympanoplasty:

  • There may be a little bleeding and drainage from the ear after the surgery. It is normal but if there is too much bleeding or pus drainage, contact your ENT doctor immediately.
  • You can remove the dressing 24 hours after the surgery. However, if you want, you can put a clean dressing on the surgical area while sleeping.
  • Apply an antibiotic ointment on the incision to prevent infections. Visit your ENT surgeon about a week after the surgery for suture removal and to make sure there are no complications.
  • Keep your ear dry. Do not shower or wash your hair for about 3-6 days after the surgery. If you have to wash your hair, use earplugs or cotton balls dipped in vaseline to prevent the incision from getting wet.
  • Take your medicines as prescribed.
