Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
We’ll help you improve your self-esteem and appearance by correcting, repositioning or resizing your ears.
Ear surgery (Otoplasty) can correct prominent or protruding ears by setting them back closer to the head as well as define and reshape folds and contours of the ears.
There is no right ear shape and size, but for those who feel their ears are a barrier to their success, otoplasty can help eliminate some of the self-consciousness.
Ear surgery is the most common for children, and children as young as six can benefit from the surgery to help increase their confidence and to help remove the teasing they may be receiving over their prominent ears. Teenagers especially can benefit, and adults who have long struggled with this issue can also feel better about themselves post-surgery.
- Safe and effective
- Suitable for kids and adults

Who is it for?
Otoplasty can help anyone whose ears are a source of stress and unhappiness — in consultation with you, we will design the right procedure to deliver the results you want
Step 1: Consultation with Dr. Platt. We want to understand your goals for the procedure and your desired results. We will offer guidance and expert opinions on the best course of action. We will also take any necessary measurements at this time. If you have any questions or hesitations, now is the time to ask!
Step 2: Book an appointment.
Step 3: Prepare yourself by reading the educational material provided and following pre-surgical advice.
Step 4: Procedure day!
Step 5: First look at the outcome. Keep in mind there may be swelling and redness, depending on the procedure. Therefore the best approximation of final look will be after adequate recovery time.
Step 6: Recover. For best results, please follow all post-surgery advice and enhance healing with appropriate sleep, nutrition and hydration.
Step 7: Come back in for a follow-up appointment to ensure proper healing and optimal results.
How it Works
The surgery involves small incisions behind the ear and — depending upon the procedure — the reshaping of the ear cartilage to reshape the ear for a more natural look.
What is the recovery time?
Most patients can return to normal activities within two weeks, but our recommendation is that patients avoid swimming for up to four weeks following the procedure.
Is this operation covered by OHIP?
Setback otoplasty is generally covered by the Ontario Health Insurance Plan for appropriate patients under the age of 18 years.
