Information about otoplasty surgery

Otoplasty, surgery to correct prominent ears, is very effective in creating normal proportions of the ears and a sense of balance to the head and face.

Protruding or exceptionally large ears can make a person feel self-conscious or embarrassed about his or her appearance. Protruding ears may also make it difficult to wear hats, caps, helmets and protective headgear in certain occupations. Women may feel self-conscious about wearing their hair behind their ears or in a ponytail or bun, while men may be reluctant to adopt a fashionable short hair cut because their ears are always on display.

  • You should avoid Asprin, Nurofen, Vitamin E Capsules and any Anti-Inflammatory medication for two weeks before and after your procedure.
  • Avoid alcohol for two weeks before and after your procedure.
