Ear surgery, man
Madrid | Zurich

The ear shape might have suffered alterations during the gestation period, due to a weak cartilage development or to genetic factors. In that case, adults and children can have it corrected. An otoplasty intervention can correct the ear shape, size and position with and without surgery depending on its clinical picture.

Otoplasty can be performed as a stand-alone procedure or combined with different facial interventions. Ears are an important element in the personal appearance, having them corrected in a safe and optimal manner, will positively impact the patient’s self-esteem.

Which otoplasty procedure is best for each patient?

Before the most appropriate technique is chosen, ear contour, size, shape and cartilage characteristics are thoroughly considered. At Dr. Richard Fakin’s clinics these factors are comprehensively assessed on a personal basis to determine what type of intervention is to be performed.

In most cases, it is necessary to optimise the distance between the head and the helix, or outer ear rim, to create the antihelix fold and reduce the size of the lower part of the cartilage known as concha. We can also modify the shape of the lobe, optimise ear symmetry, shape and proportions.

How are the otoplasty interventions performed at Dr. Richard Fakin’s clinics?

Otoplasty can be performed on patients aged five and above. Usually, local anaesthesia is applied or sedation, if the patient so wishes. It is a same-day surgery, meaning the patient can be discharged shortly after the procedure.

Scars are located in the posterior fold and are almost invisible.  In the case of a lobulopasty, or torn ear correction, the scar is located in the lobe rim, being also almost invisible.

How long do the otoplasty results last and what are the additional procedures?

Results remain stable forever. A Mini-invasive EarFold implant technique can also be used. It consists of a clip that reshapes the antihelix fold, correcting prominent or protruding ears.

Choosing either technique will depend on the ear malformation degree and the patient´s wishes.
