Ears - Otoplasty

Ears - Otoplasty

Cosmetic ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, can improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear.

What is it?

Otoplasty can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present at birth, that becomes apparent with development, or that is caused by injury. Ear surgery creates a natural shape, while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of even minor deformities can have profound benefits to appearance and self-esteem.

What is the procedure?

One of many surgical techniques may be suggested to improve the appearance of your ears. The particular technique that your plastic surgeon Elit recommends will depend on the nature of the problem and many other factors including your desires. If your problem is protruding ears, the supporting tissue of the ears, called cartilage, is reshaped in order to position your ears closer to your head. This usually is accomplished through incisions placed behind the ears. When incisions are necessary on the front of the ear, they are made within its folds to hide them. Internal, non-removable sutures are used to create and secure the newly shaped cartilage in place.

What can be treated?


Ear surgery offers almost immediate results in cases of protruding ears, with the ear permanently positioned closer to the head.

Side effects?

Fortunately, significant complications from aesthetic ear surgery are infrequent. Some of the potential complications include infection, changes in sensation or asymmetry. For more detailed information, book an appointment for a first consultation with our plastic surgeon Elit
