Ear Surgery (OTOPLASTY)

Ear Surgery (OTOPLASTY)

Otoplasty

Otoplasty is the medical term for ear correction or ear reshaping. It is a common form of plastic surgery that can be used to change the size, shape or position of your ears.
Candidates:
If you feel you need to hide your ears because of their size, shape or position , otoplasty can help. We can provide plastic surgery to reduce your ears in size, reshape “bat ears”, or set your ears closer to your head (pinning), to give you a more symmetrical appearance.

Operating Time:

1 to 1 and half hour.

Procedure and Incisions:

This cosmetic surgery procedure is different for every patient depending on whether they need their ears re-shaping, reduced in size, or set closer to the head. To correct prominent or protruding ears, a plastic surgeon would remove the excess cartilage that is causing the ear to stick out before pinning the ear back along the fold into its new position.

Anesthesia:

Local with sedation.

In/Outpatient:

Usually daycare.

Duration of Results:

Permanent.
