Ear surgery (otoplasty)
Prominent or “sticking-out” ears are caused by the absence of a fold in the ear cartilage. Corrective surgery for this alteration is based on a combination of techniques to restore the normal folds of the ear. This surgery is very frequent in childhood and adolescence – times when the condition may cause significant distress.
Surgery can be carried out under either local or general anaesthesia.
The scars are made in the back of the ear and are barely visible
And after the operation?
