Ear reshaping or otoplasty

Ear reshaping is also known as otoplasty. Ear reshaping involves taking away skin and cartilage behind the ear to change the angle in relation to the head and face. The ear is stitched into place once the skin and cartilage has been removed.

An ear reshaping procedure is quick and is normally carried out under local anesthetic with sedation of the patient. After an ear reshaping surgery the patient has to wear bandages around the ears to protect from infection, stitches are removed after approximately 2 weeks.

Many people are self-conscious about the shape / size of their ears. Otoplasty or ear reshaping surgery enables people to become more confident and less concerned about the ears.

The benefits of ear reshaping surgery / otoplasty are entirely cosmetic, there is no medical reason to have this operation - but ear reshaping can have overwhelmingly positive effects on the patient. As with all cosmetic surgery procedures there is a small risk of infection and the wound can take a long time to heal after the ear reshaping procedure. Sometimes the ears end up being a little less symmetrical, and further ear reshaping surgery can be required.

A small scar will be visible behind each ear, but this will fade over time. A very small number of ear reshaping patients develop a blood clot in the ear; this can be extracted in a simple procedure if it does not dissolve naturally.
