Otoplasty improves the shape of the ears and thus the overall look of the face.
Good to know
Any discomfort is generally moderate and, if necessary, can be treated with an anti-inflammatory analgesic. The treated ears swell up (oedema) and are bruised for a few days after the procedure.
Just as for any surgical procedure, some complications are possible, such as infection, breathing problems, asymmetry and sensitivity of the ears. For each patient, both the risks and benefits of the procedure have to be considered. Detailed and personalised information will be given to you by your surgeon during your consultation.
