What is Otoplasty (prominent ear correction surgery)?

Otoplasty, also referred to as prominent ear correction or ear reshaping- is a cosmetic surgery that improves the appearance of ears by changing the position, shape, and size of ears. Though it can be performed at any age after the ears are fully developed, it is mainly performed on children ages 4 to 14.  It is a simple and safe operation that gives permanent and natural-looking results. Perhaps that is why otoplasty surgeries have a 96% worth-it rating on RealSelf. MPSI is renowned for providing the result-oriented Otoplasty in Dubai.

What are the different types of prominent ear correction surgery in Dubai?

Different types of Otoplasty are discussed below:

How is Otoplasty performed?

Otoplasty is a typically outpatient procedure performed with sedation and anaesthesia. Below are the steps involved during the procedure:

  1.  After the patient is subjected to unconsciousness, the surgeon makes an incision at the surgical site, either on the back or inside the folds of the ear.
  2.  Next, depending on the type of surgery, the ear tissue is manipulated- it can include the removing, folding, reshaping, or grafting of cartilage or skin.
  3.  The last step involves closing the incision with stitches. The stitches are typically removed after one week.
