Large or Protruding Ears

60 Min Procedure

If you are self-conscious about the size or protrusion of your ears, the good news is that there is a solution. The procedure to correct large or protruding ears typically takes around 60 minutes and can be performed under local anesthesia or with sedation to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

During the procedure, incisions are made behind the ear to access the cartilage. The cartilage is then reshaped and repositioned to create a more balanced and proportionate look. The incisions are closed with sutures, and a headband is worn for the first few days after surgery to aid in healing.

You should have little or no pain at all after surgery with modern techniques.
