Ear Surgery

Otoplasty at the University of Ottawa

Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, can address a variety of aesthetic concerns such protrusion, shape, size, proportion, placement and symmetry of the ears. Prominent or misshapen ears can be an aesthetic preoccupation for children, teenagers and adults alike, however surgical intervention cannot be taken until the ears have grown to their full size, generally after age 6. During an in depth consultation, your surgeon will review your health and medical history and establish a plan to achieve your treatment objectives. Otoplasty incisions are commonly placed behind the ears, which helps to conceal scars for a pleasing cosmetic outcome. Your surgeon will discuss what to expect pre, during and post operation to ensure your comfort, safety and optimal recovery.
