Otoplasty Sydney

About the treatment

Prominent ears can cause significant distress for some people—many of who have been teased about this condition since childhood.

A skillfully performed otoplasty can have immediate and dramatic results, which transforms the lives of patients suffering from ears that stick—out or a range of other deformities. This procedure has a very high level of success and minimal complications.



Otoplasty or Pinnaplasty aims to correct prominent or protruding ears, defects and deformities of the ear. Otoplasty procedures can be performed at any age. However, they should only be done when the cartilage has stabilised or the ear is fully grown—generally, between 5 and 10 years of age. 

The procedure aims to create optimal alignment for the ear positioning, so they neither protrude nor appear excessively pinned back.

What to expect from Otoplasty

Otoplasty takes an average of 1-1.5 hours. It’s performed as day surgery, which allows you to return home a few hours after the operation. 


Otoplasty has minimal downtime ranging between 7-10 days. There is a bandage to be worn for the first 10 days post-surgery. You will then require a headband worn only at night for a further 6 weeks.

  • Procedure time: 1 – 1.5 hours
