Otoplasty Ear Surgery in Hyderabad

Your ears are the most prominent part of determining the symmetry of your face, and yet not all of us are born with the perfect ones. Otoplasty, or cosmetic ear surgery is a procedure to correct the shape, size or even position of the ears. Added to this, at Ambrosia Clinic in Hyderabad, we offer corrective surgeries for ear lobes too.

You are deemed an ideal candidate for ear surgery if you:

  • Are above 18 yrs – for cosmetic procedures, above 5 yrs for medical deformities
  • In good health
  • Have shape, size or position abnormalities of the ears – too wide, too big for the face, too far back, disporportionate earlobes etc.

How is Ear Surgery performed at Ambrosia?

As always, our mantra for the procedure from start to finish is Consultation, Evaluation, Surgery, After surgery and Recovery.


Pre-procedure consultation is a critical part of any treatment. It not only allows for all questions and doubts to be addressed by Dr. Priti Shukla, one of the top plastic surgeons in Hyderabad, but also allows for planning the way ahead. You may have expectations beyond the realms of reality, the consultation will help align them to what is the best for your body. 

Also all previous medical history is taken into account and costs etc may be discussed openly


Once you have decided to undergo Ear Correction Surgery in Hyderabad at Ambrosia, you will be evaluated for your fitness for anaesthesia and surgery (if the procedure you choose is surgical) by Dr Priti or if necessary by the anaesthesiologist. Your diagnostic test reports will be studied and you will be examined by taking measurements and clinical photographs for your medical record. 

You will sign the consent forms and will be given detailed preoperative instructions in writing.


Before taking you inside the operation room, parts to be sculpted will be marked with you standing to shape them to the desired size.

After Surgery

After surgery, there will be gauze padding on the operated part. You can drink water after 4 hours and have some snacks afterwards. You can walk and have normal dinner on the same evening.


You will be advised to rest and avoid physical activity until the incisions have healed. You will need some assistance initially. The recovery period may vary depending on the extent of the procedure, but for the first few days to up to a week or more after the surgery one may expect some swelling and bruising and general discomfort. The surgeon will put a splint on the nose to keep it in place as well as protect it.

About Ear Surgery Procedures at Ambrosia

Ear correction surgery or Otoplasty procedures vary based on the correction sought. Depending on the surgery, the surgeon will determine the procedure, the location of the incisions and that will at the end determine the scars that remain. 

At Ambrosia clinic in Hyderabad, we ideally take up ear surgeries for the following:

Bat / prominent ears

For this, incisions are made to remove the excess cartilage and skin, fold the cartilage into the proper position and secure it with internal stitches. External sutures will be needed to close the incision.

Enlarged or torn earring holes in the earlobes

Different surgical procedures may be used to repair a stretched or torn earring hole:

  • Side-to-side closure is commonly used in earring hole repair, especially in children. The scar tissue surrounding the inside is cut away to reveal fresh tissue, without which the skin cannot fuse back inside the sutures. Stitches are then made on both sides of the open wound and pulled tightly, allowing the skin to come back together. During the process of healing, the enlarged hole or split will close fully as the skin grows and heals itself.
  • Purse-string closure is used mostly for round skin wounds that cannot be stitched side by side. Similar to the earlier procedure, once the fresh tissue is revealed loose stitches are made around the outside of the open wound. This string is then pulled tight to completely close the hole. As the wound heals, the hole will close by itself. This procedure leaves visible scarring.
  • Anterior-posterior flap modification is a slightly more complex procedure used to repair overly stretched ear holes. In this, there is no need to remove scar tissue as the hole will be covered rather than fused back together. Two flaps are created, one on either side of the ear on opposite sides of the stretched hole which are then pulled through to the opposite side of the stretched hole and stitched shut. The healing process ensures that the original hole is healed completely.
  • Cartilage surgery: we can make wearing heavy rings possible again, with permanent cartilage implant in the ear lobule .


Keloids can form in the ear after ear piercing. Keloids are a type of scar that is red, elevated, painful to touch and itchy. A special feature of a keloid is that it grows bigger than the original scar. We specialise in permanent surgical treatment of keloids.

Ageing earlobes

Ear lobule in young people is plump and perky. With age, the ear lobule gets thinner and wrinkly. Thin and weak ear lobules can not support the earring. This thinning happens due to loss of volume that is seen with ageing. This condition is best treated with Hyaluronic acid fillers to restore the youthfulness of the earlobes and help deal with the 

Depending on the procedure, the surgeon may choose to make incisions: 

  • On the backs of your ears
  • Within the inner creases of your ears
