Cosmetic Surgery For Men

Otoplasty

Otoplasty, also sometimes referred to as 'bat ear surgery', is one of the oldest cosmetic surgery procedures dating back to the 19th century. Prominent or protruding ears can be an embarrassment whatever age you are. Most Women have the luxury of hiding protruding ears under long hair whereas most men do not have that opportunity.

This simple procedure can make ears less obvious and repair ears that have been damaged during an accident or sporting injury such as boxing or rugby.

THE PROCEDURE

Ear reshaping at MYA can be performed under local or general anaesthetic depending on the extent of the surgery needed. An incision is made behind the ear in the fold where the ear meets your head. Cartilage and skin is usually removed or pinned back with a few fine stitches.

IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?

Any surgery is a big decision and MYA provide all of the details you need to make an informed choice. However, this is a brilliant way to revive confidence lost during school days. Your Surgeon can help you be realistic about the look you want to achieve.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

Ear reshaping surgery takes approximately 1 hour.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER SURGERY?

The hospital stay and time away from work will vary depending on the procedure. Your MYA Surgeon will be able to discuss this with you in more detail. You will also need to wear a bandage around your ears for about a week.
