Ear reshaping is a type of cosmetic surgery used to treat protruding ears. The operation is also known as Otoplasty or Pinnaplasty.

Surgery to reshape the ears involves re-modelling the cartilage into a less protruding shape. The two main techniques for correcting protruding ears are:

  • ear splinting – this involves resetting the soft cartilage and using a splint to keep the ear in the new position; it’s used to treat babies under six months old
  • Otoplasty or Pinnaplasty (pinning back the ears) – where the cartilage is re-modelled to create the missing folds and position the ear closer to the head

The Risks:

  • Bleeding (hematoma)
  • Blood clots
  • Asymmetry
  • Infection
  • Poor wound healing
  • Change in skin sensation
  • Skin contour irregularities
  • Skin discoloration/swelling
  • Excessive scarring
