Ear Reshaping Surgery

What is ear reshaping?

Ear reshaping, or otoplasty, is a surgical procedure to alter the shape of the ear. Otoplasty can be performed in both adults and children. The operation is most commonly performed to correct excessive prominence or “sticking out” of the ears.

Is ear reshaping right for me?

Always talk to your surgeon before deciding whether ear reshaping surgery is appropriate for you. It may be a good option if you feel your ears are too large, stick out too much or are not symmetrical (one ear is different from the other).

Potential complications

All surgery comes with some degree of risk. For example, bleeding and infection are possible. Significant complications following ear reshaping are usually infrequent. Don’t worry, your surgeon will fully explain potential complications during the consultation process and will commit to supporting you during your recovery period.


During surgery

Your time in surgery may vary according to your needs and the specifics of the procedures being performed. Your surgeon will explain everything to you during consultation.


One of the most important reasons for choosing a reputable surgeon is knowing they will be by your side throughout the recovery process, ready to reassure and support you at every stage. Ask your surgeon what the recovery process will involve for you.
