This is a procedure that corrects protruding ears or defects in the ear either from birth or trauma. Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty can be considered from age 6 as the ears would have reached its full size.
Is Otoplasty right surgery for me?
If you or your child has protruding ears, large ears, abnormally shaped or deformed ears then an otoplasty may be for you.
Healing and recovery
The ears will be swollen, bruised and numb for 2 to 3 days post surgery. Bruising will disappear 7 to 10 days post surgery and total healing will take at least 6 weeks.
