Otoplasty, Pinnaplasty or Bat Ear Correction

About Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)

Otoplasty, also known as ‘Pinnaplasty’ or ‘Bat Ear Correction’, is quite simply a procedure used to rectify over prominent, or ‘sticking out ears’.

People of all ages decide to pursue Otoplasty because they are self-conscious about their ears. Around 2 percent of the population feel their ears stick out too much.

Otoplasty is a procedure developed to remedy this situation, by adjusting the shape of the cartilage of the ear, this allows folds to be created that cause the ear to lie closer to the side of the head.

What You Need To Know About Ear Surgery/ Otoplasty

  • The procedure may be performed under general or local anaesthetic with or without sedation and usually takes one to two hours.
  • After the procedure, a bulky dressing will protect the ears.
  • Approximately 1 week after the procedure, temporary stitches will be removed or dissolve, allowing the patient to return to work.
  • Any activity in which the ear may be bent should be avoided for approximately 1 month.

How is Otoplasty Performed:

Step 1: Making a small incision behind the ear to expose the cartilage.

Step 2: The cartilage is sculptured and bent towards the head.

Step 3: Permanent stitches are used to hold the new shape.

Another technique uses the same incision but the cartilage is folded as opposed to removed to create the new shape.
