This is a surgical procedure designed to correct prominent ears in children and adults, creating a better aesthetic balance.
The procedure may involve the placing of simple sutures in the ear cartilage to reposition the ears closer to the skull or the removal of cartilage. Often these procedures are performed in combination. Local anaesthetic, conscious sedation, or general anaesthesia may be used. A hidden incision is usually made behind the ear. Specialized sutures are used to “pin” the ears back to a more normal position and restore normal ear anatomy.
A head bandage is usually required for one week. When the bandage is removed, the surgeon may ask you to wear a headband for several weeks to assist in keeping the ears in the correct position especially during the night.
