Ear Surgery Results
Changing the position, shape or size of your ears through Otoplasty surgery can have a significant effect on your confidence and your appearance. Ear surgery (Otoplasty) achieves immediate results that will last a lifetime.
One of the most popular reasons people have Otoplasty is to improve the visual appearance of their ears. Reconstructive and cosmetic ear surgery is administered to treat a number of deformities, such as folded, cupped, protruding, ‘cauliflower’, large, or tiny ears.
The degree of your Otoplasty may rely upon the type of correction needed. During your consultation with Dr Magnusson, your individualised procedure will be thoroughly discussed with you as well as what incision patterns may be required.
Generally, incisions are made either within the natural skin folds or at the back of the ear; this process allows for reduced visible scarring. Depending on the extent of correction necessary; the ear cartilage may be manipulated to create a more balanced, aesthetic appearance.
Most children and adults will have a general anaesthetic. If this is the case, your operation will need to take place in a hospital. The procedure can also be performed under local anaesthetic.
