Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

This surgery corrects prominent ears that often stick out.  Protruding ears can detract from facial appearance and make the patient self-conscious.  Often young children are teased at school.  Cosmetic Ear Surgery seeks to correct such defects and assist in restoring a patient’s confidence.

During consultation patient concerns are discussed in detail following a full assessment.


Operation: 1 – 2 hours with general anaesthetic
Hospital Stay: Usually a day procedure
Driving: 3 to 5 days

Discomfort will be experienced immediately after the procedure.  Ears are bandaged to reduce swelling and to preserve healing.
