Ear Surgery in Ottawa by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Aesthetic Ear Surgery most commonly means bringing the ears closer to the side of the head so they don’t stick out. The medical term for this procedure is an “otoplasty,” although most people better know it as ear pinning. Otoplasty surgery aims to correct prominent ears, so they don’t draw attention from the rest of the face. While this surgery is often performed for pediatric patients, it is common for adults to undergo this procedure to improve the cosmetic appearance of their ears.

Dr. Ian MacArthur is a Top Rated, Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Ottawa. He is the Medical Director at New Age Medical Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery, one of the busiest surgical centers in Ottawa.

He is known as the go to Ear surgeon in Ontario.

Dr. MacArthur is Board Certified with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and the only plastic surgeon in Eastern Ontario trained with an ACGME accredited Craniofacial surgery fellowship.

Causes of Ear Prominence

If a patient’s ears stick out or are prominent, there are two main causes: Ear prominence is due to either an under-development of one of the folds of the ear or the overgrowth of cartilage in another part of the ear.
Either way, treatment is designed to provide a clean, natural look where both ears sit closer to the sides of the head. Over-correction, where the ears seem too close to the scalp, must be avoided at all costs.

The Procedure

Otoplasty surgery is typically done using a local anesthetic (meaning that patients are awake) and takes roughly one hour.

The procedure involves making a hidden incision on the back of the ear, followed by placing permanent sutures that strengthen the shape of the ear and hold it closer to the scalp. Cartilage may also be removed with this procedure to help maintain the ear’s position. Finally, the incisions are closed with dissolving sutures, and bandages are applied.

Recovery from otoplasty surgery generally takes 3 to 4 weeks. After the bandages are removed one week following surgery, patients are asked to wear a headband at night for 4 to 6 weeks. A headband is recommended to protect the ears while sleeping to avoid accidental injury.
