The goals of ear surgery are to move prominent ears closer to the head and/or to make ears more attractive by reducing their size or improving their shape.
Ear Surgery Techniques
Each case of ear surgery is highly individual as is the delicate and individual anatomy
of the ear. Through an analysis of ear axis and positioning on the head, ear size
and angle of protrusion, your surgeon will tailor a precise technique to correct
the exact features that are disproportionate or deformed.
Repositioning protruding ears is the most common form of ear correction surgery performed.
The procedure has a good safety record and high patient satisfaction. The goal of
the surgery is to create an ear that is as normal in structure and balanced in proportion
to other facial features.
Surgery for constricted ear and other deformities may use similar techniques as correction
for protruding ears, in addition to other methods. These are more complex techniques
and a secondary procedure may be necessary to obtain the optimal results.
Ear surgery revision may also be requested by adults who are dissatisfied with a
prior surgery. This may include an unnatural appearance, over correction where ears
appear to be pinned back sharply, and irregularity of the ear folds.
Ear surgery consultation
Overall health and personal outlook can greatly impact the outcome and the personal
satisfaction of ear surgery. Safety and success of ear surgery requires an honest
discussion with children about what they will experience and what is expected of
them. Regardless of age, it is essential that you:
Honestly share expectations for you or your child with your surgeon.
Fully disclose health history and current medications
Adults disclose the use of alcohol, tobacco or drugs
Commit to following all of your surgeons instructions precisely
During your consultation, your surgeon will ask about any previous ear surgery and
discuss with out the normal asymmetry of your ears, something you have probably never
This asymmetry is caused by differences in the size and shape of your ears and in
the shape of your skull where the ears sit. One of the goals of your surgery will
be to improve this asymmetry, although it will never be perfect.
Our ears rarely attract attention when normal in size and are in proportion to our
other facial features. However, protruding, large or misshapen ears can detract from
facial appearance. Children with prominent or deformed ears suffer ridicule of peers
and a lack of self-confidence. Most people's ears lie at an angle of 15 degrees from
the head. In some cases, though, the ears stand out at a greater angle and appear
more prominent than they should.
If protruding or disfigured ears bother you or your child, you may consider plastic
surgery. Ear surgery, as known as Otoplasty, creates a natural shape, while bringing
balance and proportion to the ears and face. It can correct a defect in the ear structure
that is present at birth, becomes apparent with development or ear damage caused
by injury. Correction of even minor deformities can have profound benefit to appearance
Surgery to correct prominent ears is one of the most common and satisfying forms
of aesthetic surgery. The results are usually excellent and lasting, giving patients
a natural appearance and increased confidence
Ear correction surgery can treat
Overly large ears- a condition called macrotia
Protruding ears occurring on one or both sides in varying degrees, not associated
with hearing loss
