Introduction

How Do You Fix Prominent Ears?

Prominent ears can be corrected through otoplasty, a surgical procedure that involves reshaping the ear cartilage to achieve a more balanced and natural appearance. Our surgeon uses precise incisions and cartilage reshaping techniques to address protruding ears.

While prominent ear correction is commonly performed on children aged five and above, when ear development is nearly complete, individuals of any age seeking to address protruding ears can benefit from this transformative surgery. The procedure effectively corrects deformities and enhances facial harmony.

The Procedure & Recovery

Understanding the Process

The otoplasty procedure is typically performed on an outpatient basis and may involve general or local anaesthesia, depending on the extent of correction needed.

  • 1

    Cartilage Reshaping: Prominent ears often result from an overdevelopment or lack of proper folding of the cartilage within the ear. During otoplasty, our surgeon carefully reshapes and sculpts the ear cartilage to create a more natural and aesthetically pleasing contour. This process involves making discreet incisions to access and modify the cartilage, usually on the back of the ear.
  • 2

    Ear Positioning: Our surgeon strategically repositions the ears closer to the skull to address the issue of ears sticking out too far from the head. This is achieved using sutures to reshape the cartilage and secure the ears in a more balanced and proportionate alignment.
  • 3

    Correction of Asymmetry: Otoplasty allows for the correction of asymmetry between the ears. Our surgeon meticulously assesses each ear's structure and adjust to ensure a harmonious and symmetrical outcome.
  • 4

    Postoperative Recovery: After otoplasty, patients are typically required to wear a supportive bandage or headband to help maintain the newly shaped ear position during the initial healing period. While there may be some temporary swelling and bruising, these effects gradually subside over a few weeks.
  • 5

    Long-Term Results: The results of otoplasty are generally long-lasting, providing a permanent solution to prominent ear deformities. Once the healing process is complete, patients can expect improved self-confidence and a more balanced facial appearance.
