What is the procedure?

  • Your ear surgery will begin with an incision behind the ear, in the fold where the ear joins the head.
  • The surgeon may remove skin and cartilage or trim and reshape the cartilage.
  • In addition to correcting protrusion, ears may also be reshaped, reduced in size, or made more symmetrical.
  • The cartilage is then secured in the new position with permanent stitches which will anchor the ear while healing occurs.
  • Length of the operation ear surgery

  • Typically otoplasty surgery takes about two hours.
  • The soft dressings over the ears will be used for a few weeks as protection, and the patient usually experiences only mild discomfort.
  • Headbands are sometimes recommended to hold the ears in place for a month following surgery or may be prescribed for nighttime wear only
  • Results of your ear surgery
  • The ear surgery permits to reshape the ears, permanently reduce the size of larger ones and set prominent ears back closer to the head. Nevertheless, you need to expect slight tenderness of the ears for 2 to 3 months.
  • Post operation
  • After discharge, you may resume most normal activities. You may no do any heavy lifting (nothing over 25 lbs.) and you may not do any vigorous exercises (jogging, tennis, aerobics).
  • Do no bend. If you need to bend, bend at your knees.
  • Do not shampoo your hair for one week after surgery. After one week you may wash your hair being careful not to get any water in your ear. To avoid water in the ear, work Vaseline into a piece of cotton and put it in the ear, then put more Vaseline on top of the cotton.
  • If you have sutures behind the ear, be sure to keep the area dry.
