Ear surgery - otoplasty

Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, can improve the shape, position, or proportion of the ear. A defect in the structure of the ear that is present at birth or that becomes visible during development can be corrected with otoplasty.

Otoplasty creates a more natural shape while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correcting even minor deformities can have significant benefits for appearance and self-confidence. If protruding or misshapen ears bother you or your child, consider plastic surgery. When it comes to children, ear correction surgery is typically possible from the age of six onwards.

The procedure lasts between 1 and 2 hours, usually under local anesthesia, you usually go home after the procedure, and stitches are removed after 7 days.
