Surgery which eliminates congenital and acquired defects of the ears is called otoplasty. This method effectively solves any problems relating to your ear shape. The operation is performed in case of droopy ears, disproportionate (too small or large) earlobes and sometimes in case of complete or partial absence of the pinna.

In plastic surgery there are two types of ear otoplasty: aesthetic and reconstructive.

  • Aesthetic otoplasty is aimed at correcting congenital aesthetic defects of ears. Owing to this procedure you can change the shape of your ears, their location and size.
  • Reconstructive otoplasty is used to restore the ear after the injury, burns or congenital malformations.

Aesthetic otoplasty is mainly aimed at the treatment of droopy ears (protruding ears). These interventions take up to 95% within all ear operations. At the LaserOne Clinic the ear shape correction is performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia.

Ear surgery allows to modify the shape and position of the cartilage of ear. Reconstruction of the ear is a more complicated procedure, conducted in stages and requiring a long rehabilitation period.

Ear surgery is performed via modern technology, it can eliminate droopy ears in an outpatient basis – it takes just 40-60 minutes under local anesthesia. To change the shape of the cartilage, the surgeon makes an incision on the back surface of the ear, trims part of the cartilage, fastenes the reconstructed area with special excised internal seams and puts a cosmetic stitch over the place of incision.  Pinna will remain fixed with a bandage for a few weeks, and the patient goes home. Stitches are removed after 8-10 days and afterwards the bandage has to be worn only at night, so as not to damage the ear during sleep.
