Micro ear surgery is a procedure that changes the angle and shape of protruding or uneven ears in children and adults.
Ear surgery at Fort hospitals reshapes part of the cartilage in the ears, allowing them to lie closer to the side of the head. This medical procedure is done between the ages of 4 and 14. The child’s ear cartilage is very soft and easy to mold at this age. In adults, the firmer cartilage of fully formed ears doesn’t allow the same degree of molding. Micro ear surgery is still effective and suitable for all age groups.
Based upon your regular health and the extent of the medical procedure, micro ear surgery can be performed either in a day or sometimes with a short hospital stay. Our specialist plastic surgeon will advise on the best option for you.
Cost is always a consideration in elective surgery. Prices will vary for individual procedures widely between Specialist Plastic Surgeons. Few factors that may influence the cost include the surgeon’s experience, the type of procedure used and the location of hospital.
