Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

Otoplasty is the technical name of the plastic surgery procedure done to correct overly prominent earlobes and other issues like asymmetry. According to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), nearly 43,000 (#1 in the world) ear surgery procedures were performed in Brazil in 2015. Rio de Janeiro is responsible for a significant amount of Brazil’s plastic surgery operations. Dr. Alexandre Charão has a proven high success rate among patients and works hard to understand each patient’s individual needs and aesthetic goals.

Benefits of Ear Surgery

An otoplasty targets three issues with the ears:

  • Wide outward projections
  • Adding internal curves
  • Exaggerated size and shape

The procedure is for anyone over six years old who seeks a more natural appearance for their ears. Most patients see imperfections fully corrected from Otoplasty. In some cases, additional minor surgery may be required. Since most of the procedure is performed in the posterior region of the ear, any scar lines are completely hidden from sight. The results will blend in with your face, giving the appearance that you were born with your new ears.

Your Initial Consultation


As you are researching ear surgery procedures, it is important for you to define your expectations. During your initial consultation, you can discuss various options which will work for your goals and current situation. To help give Dr. Alexandre Charão a clear idea of your desired results, you should send him photos of how you would like your ears to look.

Postoperative Recovery

After surgery, an initial dressing is applied which sometimes covers the entire head. This bandage is called a helmet and needs to be worn for a few days with frequent adjustments and re-applications. Eventually, the helmet is replaced by a smaller bandage which consists of gauze. The stitches are removed after ten days. With children, Dr. Alexandre Charão uses stitches that dissolve on their own. It is important to check in during with postoperative recovery period with regular follow-up appointments.
