What Is Otoplasty?

Otoplasty is a cosmetic ear sculpting surgery that alters the ear’s size, position, or proportion to create holistic facial harmony.  Alternatively, it is also called ear-repair surgery, and people seek ear correction when either their ear lobes dangle out from their heads or when they have too short or malformed earlobe. Unfortunately, this ear characteristic can cause psychological trauma and can affect personality and self-esteem for a lifetime. For this reason, many parents choose early surgery for their children to avoid bullying and future emotional impact on them. 

The outcome of ear surgery in Dubai may vary from an individual-to-individual depending on desired and practically possible results. However, otoplasty improves self-confidence, especially among children and teenagers. So, If you are planning for ear surgery in Dubai and looking for the best otoplasty surgeon Dr Adnan Tahir is the best choice for you.

When to consider ear surgery?

You can be a candidate for otoplasty in Dubai if you suffer the following conditions:

  • If you were born with overly large ears
  • If your ears are disproportionate to your head or oddly placed
  •  If your ears stick out prominently and you are over the age of 6 years
  • If you lost your earlobe due to injury
  • If you have large piercing holes in the pinna
  • Torn ear lobes
  • Abnormal folding in ear lobes
  • Pixie ear deformity
  • Ear pinning is not possible due to malformed earlobes
  • Congenital ear defect

How may Ear-surgery correct the deformity?

If the ears stick out, ear pinning can be performed to flatten the ears against the head. If one ear is positioned higher than the other, ear repositioning can create symmetry. Usually, the scars are placed in a concealed area behind the ear where the ear meets the head.

Types Of Otoplasty

Ear Augmentation

Ear Augmentation aims to reshape and enhance the pinna or cartilage of the ear for a more noticeable, symmetric look.

Ear Pinning

Ear pinning surgery involves “pinning” the ears close to the head that stick out from the sides of their head.

Ear Reduction

Patients with abnormally large ears, called macrotia, may be a candidate for ear reduction otoplasty in Dubai to reduce the size of their ears.

Ear Surgery Cost in Dubai

Cost of Otoplasty  Ear Surgery In Dubai starts from 30,000 AED (excluding VAT). The final cost is determined at the time of consultation after considering the following factors:

  • Scope of Ear reshaping
  • Involvement of grafts
  • Other aesthetic surgery required in conjugation to otoplasty
  • Correction in symmetry or ear deviation.

Pre-Op Preparation:

As you visit Dr Adnan Tahir for ear correction, he would ask for detailed medical history or any condition such as allergy to an anaesthetic. Then, he would look for the scope of ear correction and explain to you the possible changes with the surgery. Finally, Dr Tahir would ask for the following pre-op preparations before scheduling an otoplasty surgery.


Although this surgery is done under general anaesthesia in a hospital; however, in adults, this procedure could be performed under local anaesthesia, proceeding with the following steps. 

  • As per otoplasty, the surgeon marks and makes incisions in the ears, typically at two points, one at the back ear and the other within the ear fold creases.
  • Then the surgeon makes alterations to the cartilage or the lobular part by removing the excess skin or cartilage from the surgical site.
  • On the other hand, the surgeon adds cartilage grafts and reshapes the lobular part if ear volume needs enhancement.
  • Finally, the surgeon closes incisions with dissolvable sutures.

After surgery, wound dressings and a compression garment are placed on the area to immobilise the ears and promote healing. These will need critical care for seven days post-operatively.

The risks of elective surgery should always be considered before the procedure. Common concerns following surgery can include bleeding, asymmetry, delayed healing, and infection, although these are short-term risks and should subside as the ears begin the heal.

More uncommon complications can include sensitivity or numbness that can last several months and, in rare cases, can be permanent. Occasionally patients can experience thick or raised scarring, which may require further treatment.

Dr Adnan will be happy to discuss individual expectations, requirements, treatment plans, and post-operative courses at the time of your consultation.

After Surgery Care OR Recovery

The doctor will provide with dressing and compressional bandage for a speedy recovery. The doctor will also provide specific instructions to help faster recovery post-surgery.

  • The doctor will provide specific analgesic and healing medications.
  • The doctor will instruct about regular cleaning and disinfect action of wounds.
  • The doctor will schedule the next appointment for supervising surgery.
