The face is the first thing people notice when we interact with them. Our ears are rarely noticed unless they are overly large or protrude out from the head. When that is the case, it can be a great psychological strain and social impediment.
Plastic surgery of the ear, or Otoplasty, is the procedure that is done to improve this situation. An Otoplasty can be done at any time into adulthood or often on children once their ears are fully grown, usually by the age of 6 – 7 years. The scars from Otoplasty are well hidden on the back side of the ear.
The procedure is usually performed with the patient asleep under a general anesthetic and takes about 2 – 3 hours to treat both ears. The patient can usually go home the same day after the surgery with a protective head dressing to safeguard the ears. After a few days, this is removed and replaced by a stretchy headband garment that is generally worn for several more weeks.
