Prominent Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
Otoplasty is usually performed during childhood but may also be performed on adult patients
Prominent ears are the result of variation in ear development. It can involve one or both ears. The ear protrudes due to the failure in formation of the anti helical fold, or relatively large concha.
Otoplasty is usually performed during childhood but may also be performed on adult patients.
The aim of prominent ear surgery is a naturally positioned and normal looking ear, usually achieved by cartilage reshaping.
The procedure is performed under general aesthetics and takes 1.5 to 2 hours. The surgical approach is through a hidden post auricular (posterior ear) incision. A protective bandage will be applied for the first week and then for another two weeks at nighttime. Return to normal sports activity is expected to be after four weeks.
