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.

Prices ear surgery
Some patients wonder why we don't have a fixed price list. We have chosen not to have one as each patient is unique with unique conditions for an operation. Since conditions vary from patient to patient, no surgery is exactly the same, although there are more standardized procedures such as breast augmentation.
The price-range for some surgeries is so great that we feel that we need to meet our patients in order to provide a fair and accurate price. In addition, it is often only at the time of consultation that we together with you will find out which procedure or procedures are suitable for achieving a beautiful, final result. For example, it may be advisable to combine a tummy tuck with liposuction of the abdomen or waist. Our goal is perfection and that you should be completely satisfied with the result after surgery. If several procedures are performed at the same time, the pricing will be different than if the procedures are performed each in itself.
It's important to remember that in addition to the actual cost of surgery, the proce also includes anaesthetic, all medication, all revisits (often three) and often at least one overnight stay including meals, after surgery. Here you can read more about what is included when booking an operation at the Victoriakliniken.

In cases where the price is quoted excluding VAT, this is because these procedures are always performed on a medical basis.
