Otoplasty, pinnaplasty, correction of bat ears, ear pinning
Correction of prominent ears, or ear plastic surgery, may be carried out simultaneously with most other facial surgeries.
Pinnaplasty / otoplasty / ear cosmetic surgery can be carried out under general anaesthetic (usually recommended for children) or local anaesthetic. The incisions are generally placed behind the ear, occasionally in front. The cartilage of the ear is remodelled and, on occasions, some of the cartilage may be removed. The sutures (stitches) are absorbable and do not require removal.
After ear plastic surgery (otoplasty / pinnaplasty), the ears may be covered with a large head dressing which should be worn for one week. After this it is advisable to wear a tennis head band for six weeks although, due to pressures of school or work, it may only be possible to wear the head band at night.
