Ear Surgery (Otoplasty) Day Surgery Procedure
For individuals who have prominent so-called ‘bat’ ears, cosmetic ear surgery can significantly improve their appearance and enhance their self-confidence. Ear surgery, otherwise known as otoplasty, is performed by Mr. Maxwell at his practice in Melbourne, Victoria for adults. The procedure is extremely reliable and generally requires a recovery period of ten days.

This is a great Before & After example of corrective ear surgery performed by Mr. Maxwell.
The ear surgery procedure takes just one to two hours and is generally performed under sedation and is a day case procedure. Otoplasty can also be performed as an office procedure in adults. The surgery commences well-hidden incisions behind the ears. Through these incisions, Mr. Maxwell reshapes the cartilage of the ears to position them more naturally, closer to the side of the head. After the incisions are sutured and the ears carefully bandaged, the procedure is complete.
After Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)
Patients are required to wear the head bandage continuously for the first week after ear surgery to maintain the new position and shape of the ears and to reduce swelling and the risk of post-operative bleeding. When the bandages are removed, the ears are rather swollen and bruised, but this settles quickly over the next ten days. The patient then wears a headband at night for the next two weeks. Patient satisfaction is very high after otoplasty and patients are generally excited to show off their new appearance.
