Separated ears can cause anxiety, complexes and a decrease in self-esteem, many times initially caused by the teasing of classmates in childhood.

It is possible to operate on ears that are too far apart from the age of 5, with local anesthesia.


Big Ears

Ear Reduction

It is possible to reduce the size of ears that are too large while maintaining the aesthetic proportions of the ear with natural results.
01. REDUCTION OF THE LOBES. (Lower Area of the Ear)

Earlobes can sometimes be too large in proportion to the rest of normal-sized ears. The Reduction of the size of the lobes allows to compensate these disproportions and improve the appearance of the ears and the rest of the face. It is done under local anesthesia and the sutures fall out on their own after about 10 days. The residual scar is located on the lower margin of the lobe and with the passage of time it usually becomes inapparent.

02. REDUCTION OF PINNAE (Upper Area of the Ear)

The pinnae (upper ear area) may be too large in proportion to the middle area (concha) and/or earlobes.
Reducing the size of the auricles allows us to compensate for these disproportions and improve the appearance of the ears and the rest of the face. It is performed under local anesthesia and the sutures fall off on their own after about 10 days. Residual scars are usually inapparent.

03. COMPLETE AURICULAR REDUCTION (LOBE + PINNAE)

Large ears as a whole can be reduced with a Complete Reduction Otoplasty, treating the pinnae (upper area of the ears) and also the auricular lobes, and obtaining very natural results while maintaining normal aesthetic proportions.
It is performed under local anesthesia and the sutures fall off on their own after about 10 days. Residual scars are usually inapparent.

Different Ears

Asymmetrical Ears

The human body is not symmetrical: one side is different from the other.
The two ears are never EXACTLY the same, neither in their size, nor in their shape, nor in their implantation in the head, but in evident asymmetries with very different ears it may be possible to improve the symmetry and appearance with a Symmetry Otoplasty, with local anesthesia.

One of the most common mistakes in Otoplasty is the exaggerated removal of the skin behind the ear. On many occasions it is not necessary to remove any amount of retroauricular skin but, to this day, there are still many surgeons who believe that they should systematically remove skin in all cases that operate and then, when closing the wound, the ear remains too folded and misshapen.

Sometimes, when trying to bring an ear with a large shell closer to the head, only by folding the fold of the Antehelix with Mustardé sutures, an unnatural result is obtained in the frontal view.

It is extremely important, before surgery, to assess, study carefully and identify all the elements of the ears that cause their malposition, in order to later reposition and shape them in a natural and aesthetically pleasing way.

Solving these problems can be very complicated, and only a very experienced surgeon can try to improve the results of a previous otoplasty by means of a Secondary Otoplasty.
