Ear Correction (Otopexy)

Protruding ears or changes in the shape of the ear can mean great suffering for many people. The changes are usually due to cartilage deformation. The goal of otoplasty is to produce a more natural ear shape. To select the optimal surgical procedure, a detailed analysis of the ear is important.

Normally there is a cut made behind the ear or through the ear cartilage where the ear is then reduced in size or formed new.  This operation can be performed on children started at the age of 5.

In a detailed consultation, the patient’s wishes and ideas are discussed thoroughly.


Surgery takes about 1 – 2 hours. It can be performed under local anaesthesia or under general anaesthesia (especially for children). Ear corrections are in most cases performed as an outpatient treatment.

After Operation

A head bandage is worn for 2 days after the operation.  Thereafter, a headband and a small bandage over the ear are sufficient.
