Otoplasty – The Procedure

For younger patients, general anesthesia is commonly used. For adults, local anesthesia and sedation are usually used. Incisions are small and well-concealed as they are located in the back of the ear. There are various techniques which may be used to improve large or protruding ears.

The cartilage may be sculpted to a more desirable shape and bent back toward the head. In some cases, a large piece of cartilage may be removed. Other times, sutures may be used to fold the cartilage back onto itself to reshape the ear. In most cases, both ears are operated on in order to achieve symmetry.

Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a plastic surgery procedure that improves protruding or over-developed ears.

Patients will need to refrain from sleeping on the ears for a period of time.

Work, school and other normal activities can often be resumed within five to seven days. Patients will need to avoid strenuous exercise and contact sports for at least one to two months.
