Ears which are too large, or stand out from the head, can become an unwanted focus and sometimes cause embarrassment or low self esteem.
Having the ears in proportion can be achieved with a surgical procedure, “otoplasty”, performed by a Plastic Surgeon, in hospital, requiring only a day stay .
There are several options for this operation, and to achieve the best results it is best to consult a Patient Advisor to confirm the most appropriate operation to achieve the required result.
A good outcome from this would have the ears sitting flat against the head, yet looking natural, without any unnatural contours.
Although Medicare and private health funds may cover some of the associated cost, there will still be an out of pocket portion, and there will need to be 5 to 7 days of recovery.
Careful planning is needed to ensure satisfaction.
