EAR CORRECTION (Otoplasty)

Purpose: To pin back prominent ears
Length of operation: 1to 11/2 hour
Anaesthesia: General anaesthetic
Inpatient stay: 1 day
Followup: 1 week, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year
Time off work: 2 weeks
Recovery: 2-3 weeks
Risks: swelling, bruising, asymmetry.

This is a procedure to correct prominent ears which is done under general anaesthetic. It is generally a day case or maximum an overnight stay. The incision is given behind the ear and the ear cartilage is moulded to pin the ear back. Dissolving sutures are used and the wound is covered with a head bandage.

You will need to come back after 1 week and the head bandage will be removed. Overall results are excellent but there are some well known limitations, risks and complications which you should be aware about. Scar, infection and bleeding are issues with any operation. The ear will be quite bruised but settles in about 2-3 weeks times. Ears tend to be different on both sides and some element of asymmetry will persist, which is minor and not noticeable.
