This intervention makes the ears more symmetrical and in harmony with the rest of the face. Whether it’s due to a detached pinna or a deformity, ear surgery will improve their appearance.

Uniform or bilateral otoplasty is possible from the age of 6, when the ears have reached their adult size and when the child is in pain and complains about his appearance.

Otoplasty can put an end to the bullying that is often the cause of psychological difficulties or academic conflicts. Otoplasty is also possible in adults.

Cosmetic ear surgery is a common procedure that gives immediate and spectacular results. It corrects the ears and gives a more balanced and more aesthetic appearance to the entire face.


Performed under local anesthesia, this cosmetic surgery for protruding ears lasts between an hour and an hour and a half.

It involves making an incision behind the pinna and correcting the shape of the cartilaginous skeleton. Dr. Coeugniet reshapes the cartilage using gentle and natural methods and removes a fragment if necessary, in order to create the anatomical folds. Also, the corner of the ear is brought closer to the head. Dr Coeugniet closes the incision with stitches and applies a bandage to keep the ear in its new position.

Since the incision is made behind the pinna, the scar is invisible.

The final results of an operation to correct protruding ears can be seen immediately after the operation.
