Ear Surgery

Otoplasty, also known as aesthetic ear surgery, is the process of changing the shape, position or size of the ears. If it bothers you how far your ears are from your head, you may prefer to have an otoplasty. You may also consider otoplasty if your ear or ears are misshapen due to an injury or birth defect. Otoplasty can be performed at any age, after the ears have reached their full size – usually after the age of 5 – into adulthood.

During The Surgery

Otoplasty techniques vary in what type of correction is needed. The special technique your plastic surgeon will choose will determine the location of the incisions and the resulting scars. Your doctor may make incisions:
  • Behind your ears
  • In the inner folds of your ears
After making the incision, your doctor may remove excess cartilage and skin. He will then fold the cartilage into the appropriate position and secure it with internal stitches. Additional stitches will be used to close the incisions. The procedure typically takes about two hours.

After Surgery

After the otoplasty, your ears will be covered with bandages for protection and support. You will likely feel some discomfort and itching. Take pain relievers as prescribed by your doctor. If you are using painkillers and your discomfort increases, contact your doctor immediately. Avoid lying on your side to prevent pressure on your ears. Also try not to rub the incisions or apply excessive force. Consider wearing button-down shirts or loose-fitting collared shirts. A few days after the otoplasty, your doctor will remove your bandages. Your ears will likely be swollen and red. You may need to wear a loose headband that covers your ears at night for a few weeks. This will prevent you from pulling your ears forward as you roll over in bed. Talk to your doctor about when or whether to have your stitches removed. Some stitches dissolve on their own.
