Information about Ear surgery
Ear surgery is done to place prominent ears closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears.
The correction of prominent ears is a common procedure in adults, but even more common in children. The reason for the correction early in life is often connected to children may be teased or bullied because of his/her protruding ears, especially at school.
When doing surgery of protruding ears the incisions are done on the back of the ears, so that the scars are hidden. The cartilage is shaped by grinding it on the front under the skin. In some cases, some cartilage is cut away. Each person’s ear is unique and surgery must be individualized.
The operation is usually performed under local anesthesia, but can also be carried out under general anesthesia.
After surgery, expect swelling and some tenderness for about a week. Sometimes you need pain medication such as Alvedon which we provide. After a week you will come for a return visit for control and for removal of stitches and dressings. After surgery, you should wear a wide headband over your ears around the clock for two weeks and another two weeks at night.
