Prominent Ear/Otoplasty

Otoplasty is a Plastic Surgery procedure that reshapes the contour of the ear to reduce its prominence.

Ears form early during embryological development and reach 80% Adult size at age 6. Prominent ear deformity (Bat Ears) is an unfortunate development that can lead to teasing of children at a school age. Dr. Jack Zoumaras can set the ears back as early as age 5 and is one of the few plastic surgeons in Australia to specifically do a fellowship in ear surgery with world renowned ear surgeon Francoise Firmin in Paris.

Technique:

The surgery involves an incision behind the ear. The cartilage is then accessed, manipulated and set back with sutures to contour the ear to a more attractive natural position.

The procedure will be illustrated in detail and you will be given a detailed instruction sheet on expected post-operative course and potential complications during your consultation with Dr Jack Zoumaras.

It is advised to stop smoking at least 6 weeks before and after surgery.
