Ear correction

Ears are as individual as eyes and nose and can have a great effect on facial expression. Patients usually want inconspicuous, flat ears that do not protrude.


How is the operation done?

From the backs of the ears, the ear cartilage is shaped using special techniques. The shape and position of the ear can be modified. Permanent sutures anchor the ear cartilage or shape it. Sometimes it is necessary to remove parts of the cartilage.


How is anesthesia given?

We discuss the suitable anesthesia for you in a personal consultation. In principle, the operation can be done under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. With local anesthesia, an additional twilight sleep can be administered. We recommend general anesthesia for small children.


Are there any complications?

Depending on the initial finding, the shape and size of the ears are easily corrected. Bruising and swelling may occur as with any operation, which generally go away on their own. Infections of the wound are very rare.
