Otoplasty, often termed ear reshaping surgery, is a procedure tailored to modify the ears’ size, position, or shape. Many individuals opt for Otoplasty due to congenital ear conditions, dissatisfaction with ear prominence, or to rectify asymmetries. Various elements, from genetic predispositions to past injuries, can influence the ear’s appearance, making this procedure a sought-after solution for both aesthetic and functional enhancements.


Every Otoplasty journey commences with a thorough consultation. In this session, the surgeon delves deep into the ear’s structural intricacies, employing state-of-the-art imaging tools when necessary. This dialogue allows patients to voice their concerns and aspirations, enabling the surgeon to craft a surgical strategy aligning with their vision. The choice of anaesthesia is pivotal and is determined after considering the patient’s health, comfort levels, and the procedure’s complexity. While local anaesthesia combined with sedation is a popular choice, some cases might necessitate the use of general anaesthesia.
In Otoplasty, surgical techniques are as diverse as the issues they address. Strategically placed incisions, often concealed behind the ears, grant the surgeon access to the ear cartilage. Depending on the desired outcome, the surgeon might sculpt the cartilage, employ sutures to adjust the ear’s angle, or excise redundant skin. The culmination of the procedure sees the careful closure of these incisions, with an emphasis on minimising any potential scarring.


PLEASE NOTE: While some results may be visible sooner, final results often take a few months for swelling to fully subside.

You may choose to undergo an Otoplasty procedure for a number of reasons:

Otoplasty can usher in a transformative change, addressing concerns like oversized ears, protrusion, or irregularities. The result is often a harmonious facial symmetry, accentuating the individual’s natural beauty.
Beyond its aesthetic prowess, Otoplasty can also rectify functional impediments. For some, realigning the ear can lead to enhanced auditory capabilities, enriching their sensory experiences.
The ripple effect of aesthetic and functional enhancements often permeates the psychological realm. Many patients report heightened self-worth, renewed confidence, and an enriched social life post-procedure.
