Ear correction surgery, or otoplasty, is one of the safest cosmetic surgeries with great results. It:

  • refines the size, the shape and the position of the ear
  • moves prominent or protruding ears closer to the head
  • reduces the size of large ears

It frees man and women from the undue attention, provides natural, proportionate and symmetrical appearance , grows self-confidence and allows to engage in normal social actions without being worried about the physical look.

We make every effort for you to have a successful surgery with great results in the stunning world heritage city of Prague.

Procedure details

Otopolasty (Pinnaplasty, Ear pinning) is a surgery of prominent auricles, or deformed auricles. The auricles are operated on after the growth termination, i.e. after reaching the age of 6.

The cut is located on the back side of the ear, so that the final scar after Otoplasty is not visible. After releasing the skin, the cartilage is formed by grinding, and the auricles are tightened to the head by stitches, to reach a suitable position.

  • Duration: 1 -2 hours.
  • Adverse effects: pain, swelling, redness and insensitivity, the need to wear bandage.
  • Results: Usually permanent. Very rare need for reoperation
  • Anesthesia for otoplasty: Local or analgosedation


After Otoplasty cosmetic surgery, the auricles are covered by a bandage strapped around the head. The bandage is kept on for 10 days. After the Otoplasty surgery, the patient may go home, even driving is allowed. Pain may persist for 2 days, and it is possible to use analgesics during that period. The second day after the Otoplasty surgery the auricles are re-bandaged by means of removing the bandage and the covering placed on the auricles.

The cuts behind the auricles are brushed over by a sterile verricule soaked with a disinfectant solution. A thin sterile cover is then placed behind the auricle, another cover is placed over the auricle, and it is tightened by an elastic bandage strapped up around the head. The re-bandaging is carried out by the surgeon, but in the event the patient cannot arrive in person, s/he can do it herself/himself.

The bandage is removed on the 10th day after the Otoplasty surgery, and the patient can wash his/her hair. The stitches are absorbent, and as such, they do not need to be removed. In case the stitches are not absorbed within 3 weeks after the Otoplasty surgery, the string may be pulled out easily with scissors and tweezers.

We recommend a state of rest for a period of one week after the Otoplasty surgery; office work can be carried out as early as the second day after the Otoplasty surgery, even with the auricles still covered by the bandage.

After the bandage is removed, we recommend placing a sports headband or a bandage over the auricles, to prevent damage caused by an accidental touch during sleep.

Sporting activities can be carried out approximately 3 weeks after the Otoplasty surgery.
