Prominent ear correction (otoplasty) is a procedure performed to reshape the ear and give it a more normal appearance. The surgery usually is performed on ears that are large or that protrude from the head. In many people, the problem is caused by an underdeveloped middle fold of the ear. This underdeveloped fold can be associated with other deformities. For this reason it may be necessary to perform several procedures on the ear at the same time. In most cases, patients need surgery on both ears so that they will be similar. Rarely, only one ear will require surgery.

Otoplasty is performed under general anaesthetic in children, whilst adults can have the procedure under general or local anaesthetic. Otoplasty requires only day surgery.

The procedure entails the surgeon making an incision behind the ear. The ear cartilage is then weakened and folded into an aesthetically pleasing position. This position is maintained with internal sutures. The surgeon may remove excess cartilage and/or skin. After surgery, a head dressing is applied for one week. Upon removal of the dressing, a head band is worn at night for a further 4-6 weeks to allow the ears to maintain their new shape. Swelling and discolouration will subside in a few weeks, whilst scarring is minimal.
