Ohrenkorrektur bei Männern

Prominent ears can cause a high level of psychological stress but can be pinned back in an outpatient procedure (ear pinning procedure, otoplasty correction, otopexy) under local anesthesia. It is advised that young children be operated on under general anesthesia. Before the procedure, patients should clarify whether they want one or multiple parts of their ear(s) to be corrected. The upper ear pole, outer ear and/or the earlobe can all be operated on either together or separately. Ears or earlobes that are out of proportion can be reduced in size, while earlobes stretched or torn by ear piercings can be repaired as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia.
