For individuals who have prominent ears, cosmetic ear surgery may help to improve their appearance and enhance their self-confidence. At Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine, the Otoplasty procedure will be performed keeping in mind the overall appearance of your face. This ensures that the position and alteration of your ears looks completely natural and more aesthetically pleasing.
The ears are repositioned closer to the head by reshaping the cartilage. The cartilage is reshaped through incisions placed behind the ears so that any resulting scars are concealed. Most ear surgery is performed as day surgery.
You should be up and about on the day of ear surgery, but take it easy for the first week. You should be able to return to work or school five to six days after surgery. Any pain can be easily controlled by medication. After the surgery, you may experience some mild discomfort around the ear – this is normal. If you are accustomed to sleeping on your side, your sleep may be disrupted while your ears are healing. It is important not to place pressure on these areas for a week or so after surgery.
