Prominent Ear Correction Surgery

Ear correction surgery helps children or adults who consider their ears to be too prominent The most prominent ears often lack a normal fold, and sometimes one ear is more prominent than the other. People with prominent ears can be teased, particularly during their school years, and this can lead to a loss of self confidence. Ear correction surgery can resolve this very quickly.

An incision is made behind the ear leaving a scar. The cartilage is then reshaped, and then the ear is anchored with stitches into a more normal position. Ear correction surgery takes about 40 minutes for each side.

A head bandage is placed after surgery and is to be worn for 7 to 10 days and a sports type head band needs to be worn at night following that for 6 to 8 weeks.
