Surgery for Men

Ears that protrude prominently can be the cause of much dissatisfaction, and even great unhappiness for men and women who experience this condition. Prominent ear correction/reshaping, also known as otoplasty, is a surgical solution that can produce significant change in one’s appearance, and is considered one of the most successful cosmetic surgery procedures.

The primary objective is to reduce the protrusion of the ears, and to provide a normal configuration when the ear is viewed from the side. This is achieved by modifying the flexibility of the cartilage of the ear, thereby altering the shape and position to a more desirable appearance. The procedure may vary, but usually an incision of 4 to 5 cm is made in the skin in the groove behind the ears, where any remaining surface scar will not be directly visible. Occasionally, incisions are made on the front surface of the ear, although these are placed within the normal contours.

The procedure may be performed under either local anaesthetic with sedation, or general anaesthetic, and usually takes around one hour, and is performed as a day case – not requiring an overnight stay at the Hospital.

Following surgery, the ears are carefully padded and a head bandage is applied. This is necessary to maintain the newly achieved position of the ears, whilst the initial moulding and healing take place. It also helps to minimise swelling and discomfort. This helps to maintain the position and also to protect the ears from any inadvertent injury which may happen whilst sleeping. Contact sports should be avoided for at least three months after surgery to prevent damage.

At the time of your consultation at the Alexandra Private Hospital, your surgeon will discuss the various options available to you, in line with your specific medical circumstances. You should always feel free to ask your surgeon any questions that you have regarding the surgery, and discuss any areas that may seem unclear. The goal of your surgeon and the Hospital staff is to make your entire experience as comfortable, and worry-free as possible.
