Otoplasty, also known as ear correction surgery, is a surgical procedure in which the shape, angle, position and balance of the ears are re-arranged and re-shaped according to the expectations and needs of the patients. Situated on the sides of the head, ears’ unwanted shape can greatly affect the aesthetic appearance and confidence of the individual. Otoplasty, as an ear reshaping surgery, provides a very comfortable procedure and good results.

People who are uncomfortable with the shape, angle, or position of their ears, have large ears compared to their head size, and experience prominent ear conditions or had a previous unsuccessful ear surgery are the most suitable candidates for otoplasty surgery.


What Is Otoplasty?

Otoplasty is a very safe and successful surgery that is beneficial for fixing the problems related to the appearance of ears in both children and adults. This operation can be performed on people whose ears have reached their full size.

With otoplasty, not only can protruding ears be corrected, but a variety of issues about the ears’ appearance can also be repaired. Thanks to highly developed medical techniques and technologies, otoplasty has a very high success rate. In addition, otoplasty incisions are hidden in the natural folds of the ears, which means the operation does not leave any otoplasty scars behind.

Stick Out Look of Ears

The outer ears have a certain degree range for them to have a more aesthetic look, and if that degree is beyond this range, the ears may “stick out.” With ear-corrective surgery, this condition can be fixed. Otoplasty is also effective for fixing asymmetrical ears. It can be performed for one or both ears to obtain a symmetrical result.

Ear Pinning Surgery Procedure

Incisions are made behind the ears. During ear corrective surgery, the cartilage in your ear is reshaped according to the treatment plan made beforehand. Any excess skin or cartilage is removed if it is necessary. The incisions are closed with sutures.

Depending on the suitable technique for the individual condition of the patient, techniques to perform otoplasty may vary.

The operation is performed under general anesthesia. Otoplasty surgery takes around 1-2 hours; however, depending on the selected technique and the details of the procedure, this duration may change.

Recovery After Otoplasty

After cosmetic ear surgery, you will wear a bandage on your head to cover your ears and protect the new position of your ears. This bandage will protect your ears from external damage and support their new shape and position. It is essential, especially in the early period of recovery.

It is normal to feel pain, bruising, and swelling in the ears and head after otoplasty surgery. You will be prescribed proper medication to minimize the side effects. In order to control swelling, you are advised to rest your head over your chest level.

The otoplasty scar incision should be cared for as instructed to avoid infection.

Heavy physical activities should be avoided in the first week after the operation, heavy physical activities should be avoided. Until a full recovery is achieved, patients are advised to be careful with their physical activities to protect the ears from any external damage. It is also advisable to be careful while wearing top clothes in the early periods of recovery, as they are very likely to rub the ears.

Patients can usually return to work a week after ear correction surgery; however, it also depends on the nature of your work. Please consult your doctor about when exactly you can return to work.

The results of otoplasty are permanent. After all the swelling and bruising have disappeared, patients can enjoy their life-long otoplasty results.
