Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for otoplasty?
+
-

Most people who feel that they have protruding ears are optimal candidates for otoplasty. Your candidacy for this procedure will be discussed during your complimentary pre-consultation, where a photo review will be conducted, and Dr. Buonassisi will determine whether he can achieve your desired results with surgery.

How is Otoplasty Performed?
+
-

Otoplasty takes around 2 hours to perform, and is typically done under local anesthetic. The technique used will vary depending on what is causing the ear to protrude.

Dr. Buonassisi meticulously creates an incision behind the ear, and excess cartilage and skin may be removed. The cartilage is then folded into the proper position, and secured with stitches. Because of their placements, the incisions are virtually imperceptible, for a natural result.

How long does it take to recover from otoplasty?
+
-

Recovery from otoplasty requires you to wear a dressing around the ears for the first two weeks post-surgery. It is normal to experience some bruising, discolouration and swelling around the ears. You can resume most normal activities, such as household chores, a brisk walk, or light exercise within a few days after the procedure. You can resume more vigorous, weight-based exercises once the dressing has been removed.

Your patient care manager will have detailed post-operative instructions and will be there to assist you every step of the way. Don't hesitate to reach out to them with any questions you have about the healing process.

Otoplasty

I got an otoplasty done by Dr. Buonassisi after being insecure about my ears for a long time. The consultation went very smoothly and I appreciated how open and honest he was with me. I am now 3 months post-op and I couldn’t be happier with the result - it has absolutely exceeded my expectations.

I finally plucked up the courage to have the otoplasty (ear pinned back) I decided to go with Dr. Buonassisi. The consultation was very informative and then the actual surgery couldn't have been better. Couldn't recommend them enough I just wish I'd done it sooner!

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Buonassisi at 8 West Clinic. I underwent an ear surgery and I am very happy with the results. From consultation to the day of surgery and post-op follow-up, staff were very helpful. The whole team at 8 West are very professional. Thank you Dr. B & the whole staff
