Ear Surgery (otoplasty)



Our Clinical Practice in Prominent Ear Surgery

In our practice, otoplasty is done under local anesthesia with mild sedation in our clinic, no hospitalization is needed. However in younger children, it is advised to be done under general anesthesia at our affiliated hospital in Phuket. We use anterior scoring technique wherein the incision is placed on the back of the ear, the cartilage inside is remodeled and fixed in to its new position. The excess skin is trimmed and then sutured. The operation takes 30 minutes to 1 hour per side.








Get Educated in Otoplasty

The Surgery: Otoplasty is a procedure that is performed to improve the shape or positioning of your ears. It also can reduce the size of your ears when they are large in proportion to your other facial features or when your ears protrude more than normal, otoplasty surgery can reposition them closer to head.

The Incision Site: Supporting tissue of the ears, called cartilage, is reshaped in order to position your ears closer to your head which is accomplished through incisions placed behind your ears. Subsequent scars will be concealed in the natural skin crease.
