Ear Reduction\Reshaping

Many patients believe they have excessively large ears. The medical term for ears that are abnormally large when measured is called macrotia. Ears can be made smaller at the lobes, the higher poles (the tops), or both. This procedure is known as macrotia surgery or ear reduction surgery.

Ear Reduction\Reshaping

Macrotia is the medical term for oversized ears. The term is used to describe ears that are significantly larger than the average ear size. The appearance of excessively big ears caused by an increase in the vertical height and width of the ear above and beyond the usual range can cause a decrease in confidence and be a substantial source of worry for patients.

What to expect at the time of your surgery:

The surgery begins with reducing the upper pole of the ear, known as a scapha reduction. This is followed by an earlobe reduction to create an overall smaller appearance.

Things to know about Ear Reduction surgery:

This is a very safe procedure because it calls for experience, accuracy, and an understanding of how the ear changes shape during the reduction process. Complications are minimal when the procedure is carried out with attention to exact labeling and attentive technique. Moreover, although extremely rare, hazards from a general anesthetic are also reduced by doing the surgery under local anesthesia.
