Ear surgery corrects prominent ears, for balanced proportions and enhanced appearance
Ear surgery involves reshaping the ear cartilages rather than having the ears ‘pinned back’, which was done in the past.
Patients mostly present in early childhood, brought along by concerned parents when they are being teased at school.Teenagers or adults often have dislike of their ears, hide them and seek correction. Recent changes in Medicare rebates exclude coverage over the age of 18.
Otoplasty is best performed when a child is old enough to understand and seek the procedure. This is often not until 7 or 8 years, which coincides with a time when the ears are adult sized. Otoplasty surgery does not interfere with the growth of the ear.
