About Ear Correction
Protuberant ears can be a devastating aesthetic deformity. Otoplasty is a simple straight forward procedure, which can give the ears a natural shape, orientation and configuration, and have dramatic positive effects on one's self esteem.
There are two principal conditions that require Otoplasty for cosmetic reasons. These may exist in isolation or in combination.
- A "lop-ear deformity" refers to the absence of an ear-cartilage fold known as the antihelix, which is the smaller curved inner ridge of the ear that parallels the outer curve of the ear. This type of deformity presents as an abnormally shaped ear that tends to flop forward.
- The second common condition is a "cup-ear deformity," which refers to the exuberant cup-like cartilage bowl that resides near the actual ear canal that in turn makes the ear project out excessively.
- Surgery involves identifying the exact cosmetic problem and intervening in a targeted approach and on a timely basis.
The Otoplasty Advantage
Otoplasty not only provides a cosmetic improvement, but also a psychological improvement as well. Otoplasty, or ear surgery, refers to the surgical correction of ears to pin them back, reduce them in size, correct a deformity, or make them more symmetrical.
Ear Correction Procedure
Otoplasty is commonly performed in an outpatient surgical facility and takes approximately 1-2 hours. An incision is made just behind the ear, in the natural skin fold where the ear is joined to the head. Cartilage may be sculpted and bent back toward the head with non-removable sutures used to help maintain the new shape, or cartilage may be removed to create a natural-looking ear fold. Incisions are usually made behind the ear or within the ear creases.
Dressings and/or bandages will be applied to the ears post procedure for added support and protection. Your doctor will prescribe pain medication as needed. Bandages are typically removed after a few days of surgery.

Ear Correction FAQs
- Does otoplasty surgery hurt?
During the surgery, the patient is either lightly sedated or under general anesthesia, ensuring that no pain is felt. After the surgery, patients will receive medication to minimize any side effects of the surgery, including pain and discomfort from the incisions.
- Is it quite painful? Is there much bruising?
It takes about a week for most of the swelling to subside, although the ear will be sensitive to pressure for about 2 weeks. Bruising is usually minimal, although some people are more prone to it than others. There is usually some pain postoperatively, but not a great deal, and it should be able to be controlled with prescribed pain relievers by your surgeon.
- What are the risks of otoplasty?
The risks of the operation are bleeding and infection. Both are exceedingly rare. With proper postoperative care, this is a very safe and satisfying operation that carries very little risk, offers beautiful results, and almost no discomfort from the operation itself.
You should know that your ears may feel numb for 2 to 3 months after the operation. Sensation returns slowly over that time. This is the reason that there is generally no pain in the postoperative period. This also makes the operation exceptionally well tolerated in children.
