Ear Plastic Surgery (Otoplasty)
In our Gold Coast Clinics
Ear Surgery also known as Otoplasty surgery, can improve the shape of positioning of your ears. It also can reduce the size of your ears if they are large in proportion to your other features. If you ears protrude more than normal, surgery can reposition them closer to your head.
Ear surgery often is recommended for children of six years or older as they near total ear development at age five of six. Correction of the ears prior to the child entering school helps to eliminate potential psychological trauma from the teasing of classmates. Adults may also have their ears reshaped. As long as you are in good health, there is no upper age limit for the surgery.

The Ear Surgery Procedure
The supporting tissue of the ears, called cartilage, is reshaped in order to position your ears closer to your head. This usually is accomplished through incisions placed behind your ears. Subsequent scars will be concealed in the natural skin crease.
After surgery, you will need to wear a bandage for seven days to ensure that your ears heal in their new, corrected position. You will need to avoid strenuous exercise and contact sports for several weeks.
You can resume most non-strenuous activities within a week. You will need to wear a head band at night for four weeks.
Choosing A Qualified Surgeon
One of the most important factors in the success of your plastic surgery is the surgeon you select. Many people are surprised to learn that some doctors performing plastic/cosmetic surgery today have had no formal surgical training. That is why you need to ask the right questions before you schedule a consultation.
