Cosmetic Ear Surgery or an Otoplasty Procedure can help people with large or protruding ears and help people with distorted or damaged ears change the shape of their ears. Because no single person has two identical ears, the procedure is not designed to give patients symmetrical or identical ears.
An Otoplasty procedure however, can give the patient's face a more balanced and symmetrical appearance.
This procedure involves making an incision at the back of the ear and the cartilage is then modified to adjust the protrusion or size to suit the patient’s individual needs.
After your otoplasty procedure some bruising and swelling around the ears may occur but this usually settle in seven days. Sutures are generally removed in seven to ten days or dissolve over a period of time.
A headband is supplied and is worn for between one to two weeks, and then it is only worn at nights for further support for four to eight weeks.
