Our ears are highly distinctive features and if your ears are misshapen, protruding, uneven in size or particularly large or small in proportion to your head, this can be a cause for embarrassment and lead to a lack of self-confidence.
Ear surgery can correct misshaped, uneven or oversized ears
The otoplasty procedure
Most otoplasty procedures involve the removal or reshaping of cartilage, which can create a new shape or size for ears as well as position them closer to the head, in the case of protruding ears. In Perth, Dr Anh will carry out ear surgery with the patient comfortably under anaesthetic, with general anaesthesia being particularly suitable for child patients. Depending on your condition following treatment, you may need to stay overnight at the hospital before returning home. Your recovery time and other issues will be discussed in-depth with your surgeon, Dr Anh prior to treatment.

Your consultation with Dr Anh

FAQs - Otoplasty Perth
Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a surgical treatment that is designed to improve the overall aesthetic of the ears. Whether the ears are misshapen, protruding, uneven in size or too large or small in proportion to the rest of the face, this surgery can help enhance the look of the ears for a more balanced facial aesthetic.
An incision is made behind the back of the ear and excess skin is removed to expose the ear cartilage. The cartilage is folded back onto itself and re-shaped using sutures to secure the correct position.
Otoplasty is a safe and fast procedure that generally heals very quickly. Bandages are worn for 1-2 weeks following post-operative treatment.
