Otoplasty Surgery

The typical otoplasty involves correcting ears that stick out (aka ear pinning), to decrease their projection.

What is otoplasty surgery?

Cosmetic ear surgery, also called otoplasty, is a type of plastic and reconstructive surgery that can improve the size, shape, or position of the outer ear by reshaping the cartilage. It can be performed at any age after the ears have stopped growing, which typically happens by age 5 or 6. 

Ear surgery may also be a good option if you want to correct a birth defect that has affected the shape of the ear cartilage or lobe; make your ears appear smaller; or fix the position or shape of uneven ears (when one ear looks bigger than the other). 

Who will benefit from otoplasty?

Each ear is slightly different, even on the same person. The best candidates for ear plastic surgery are healthy patients with reasonable expectations. Poor candidates for otoplasty include patients with bleeding disorders, wound-healing disorders, or other serious medical conditions that might make anaesthesia or elective surgery risky.

Why choose us?

Otoplasty surgery is individualized for each patient. It is important to choose a surgeon who is well-experienced and is a member of the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) for your surgery for your peace of mind. You will be looked after our expert surgeon and nursing team. We also provide excellent personal aftercare programs and our experienced medical team will discuss and plan any treatment with you in detail.

Frequently asked questions

Occasionally the ear is disproportionately large to the head—and in that case, the ear can be surgically reduced in size, the trade-off is a scar on the outside surface that may be undesirably visible.

The entire procedure should take two to three hours, depending on the complexity of the case. After surgery, your head will be temporarily wrapped in a bandage, to protect your ears and keep them in place to ensure the integrity of the results.

Adults are usually able to return to normal activities within a few days post-surgery. It’s common to have some numbness of the ears that usually resolves within a month, but it may persist for up to six months. After four to six weeks, you’ll be able to resume all normal activities, including sports. 

Your ears will start to look normal after a week or two as the swelling and bruising resolves. Healing is close to 80% complete by six weeks, and ears are close to fully healed by about two to three months. These results are permanent and should last a lifetime.

I recently had a procedure undertaken by Mr Oudit at the BMI Beaumont hospital. Mr Oudit is very personable and made me feel at ease at all appointments before surgery and throughout the treatment under local anesthetic. I would highly recommend.

I felt very comfortable with Mr Oudit right from the start. I explained my problems to him and he was very informative about how he would perform my surgery. I saw him before I had my surgery and I felt really at ease. The pain after my procedures, revision abdominoplasty and thigh lift, was only painful when moving about, even then not too bad. The pain went away gradually over the next week until it was barely noticeable. Overall I would say it was very little considering the amount of surgery I had. I felt cared for all through my surgery and after care. Mr Oudit is a very caring person. I would highly recommend him to friends. I am really happy with the results. I had to have a revision because of the mess made by a previous Surgeon, and Mr Oudit has done a wonderful job. I can’t praise him highly enough.

I made a decision to have my left ear pinned back because it was very prominent. I made an approach to the local BMI hospital and was given an appointment to consult with Mr Deemish. He explained the procedure to me and I left the consultation happy and confident that he would do a great job. Two weeks after the consultation I had the opertation. The operation was performed under a local anaesthetic, I did not feel anything apart from the injection. My ear was dressed and my head wrapped in a bandage, I had to keep this one for one week. I had mild pain and discomfort but was able to control that with paracetamol. When the nurse removed the bandage and dressing to reveal the result I was amazed and delighted with the result. It is now three weeks since the operation and I have no pain or discomfort. My ear looks "normal" and I am really pleased. Thank you Mr Oudit.
