Ear correction


Children, adolescents but also older patients come to me with the desire to correct ears, which stick out. There is very often an asymmetry of the ears.
My method is a minimally invasive ear correction, which aims for the most natural possible and perfect result. The international otoplasty operation technique, which I have refined in the last 17 years, is gentle, rarely leads to complications and attains an attractive, aesthetically pleasing result.


An ear correction or otoplasty is typically possible in the following cases:

  • missing antihelix = the folds on the edge of the pinna are missing, the ear looks flat and sticks out
  • pronounced concha = ‘Valley’ in the entrance of the external ear canal, which leads to an enlarged offset angle between the pinna and the head and therefore causes the ears to stick out
  • or both phenomena together.

Sticking-out or aesthetically displeasing ears can be corrected very beautifully with otoplasty. The ears should absolutely not look overcorrected after surgery. Therefore, exact precision and an aesthetic sensitivity are needed in surgery. Overcorrections are aesthetically displeasing results. Many men and women come to my consultations with the desire to have their ears pinned (otoplasty).

Stitching method

The commonly propagated and seemingly innocent stitching method has many medical and also aesthetic disadvantages. It carries unnecessary risks of complications and, in my opinion, gives a rather unnatural and displeasing result. In plastic surgery, this stitching method is not internationally recognised.

Ear lobe correction

Patients often come to my clinic, showing tears or holes in their earlobes, for example, because of ear jewellery. These can be corrected successfully with a fine stitching technique under local anaesthetic.
