Otoplasty (Ear correction surgery)

Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears.

For the most part, the operation is done on children between the ages of six and 14.

Ears are almost fully grown by age six, and the earlier the surgery, the less teasing and ridicule the child will have to endure.

“My procedures was explained well and I have been pleased with the result. Miss Irvine is an excellent surgeon who put me at ease. 5 Stars”

Mrs D, Devon, (Miss Irvine, Upper Lid Blepharoplasty)

Ear surgery on adults is also possible, and there are generally no additional risks associated with ear surgery on an older patient.
