Ear Surgery (Otoplasty) in Cape Town

Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, improves the shape of your ear if you are someone who has the appearance of protruding or overly large ears. Ear surgery will help to improve the overall harmony of your facial features, which may help to improve self-confidence. Specialized techniques that place incisions inconspicuously inside or behind the ear can create a natural appearance.

Thank you to Dr Dower and his amazing team – my little boy had ear surgery and we are so appreciative of the care and empathy that was shown to us throughout the process. His results have been outstanding and made a huge difference to his confidence levels. You are all a blessing and we are just grateful we landed in your safe hands!


Recovery from Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

You may engage in light activity the day after your surgery; a return to more normal activity may take 1-2 weeks.

Your appearance will gradually refine over the following 4-6 weeks. Proper skincare and sun protection are essential during healing. Results from ear surgery are generally permanent.
Ear Surgery can be other facial procedures, such as nose surgery (rhinoplasty) or more general facelift surgery, to bring balance and proportion to the face.
