Procedure details

The surgery is performed under local anaesthesia. An incision is on the back of the ear, exposing the ear cartilage. The cartilage is then modified to allow the ear to sit closer to the side of the head.

Our experienced best otoplasty surgeons hide the scar behind the ear. Post-operative pain is usually very mild. The surgery is done under local anaesthesia or analgosedation. Hospitalisation is not required. The first check-up takes place on the second day, which includes cleaning the wound and applying a compression headband.

Otoplasty recovery time

The sutures are removed after seven days. However, it takes 1-2 weeks for the bruising and swelling to settle.

How soon can I fly after having ear surgery abroad?

It is essential to follow the specific guidelines and recommendations your surgeon provides. In general, you can take a short haul flight after 48 hours of having ear surgery.

Ear surgery scars

The scars from an otoplasty (ear pinning) surgery are located behind the ear and are barely noticeable. The incision is typically concealed right in the crease behind the ear.
