Otopexy – aesthetic operations on the ear. No patient, whether small or large, needs to suffer from protruding ears or excessively large earlobes. We will take care of aesthetic ear correction.
Their position at the side of the head means the ears are very important for a harmonious aesthetic appearance. The angle at which they stick out, their size, shape and condition simply attract attention – both when looking at the face from in front as well as in profile from both sides.
Otopexy represents a focus of our aesthetic expertise
As highly qualified and experienced ENT surgeons, our practice can offer you consultation if you are interested in aesthetic correction, optical modification or harmonisation of the outer ear or ear lobe. Corrective and beautifying procedures of the ears come under the medical generic term of otopexy. Here we can offer a very wide range of interventions including reconstruction of the shape of the ear for congenitally deformed ears, or where this has been caused by an injury.
Will health insurance pay for the costs of an otopexy?
In contrast to other cosmetic operations where the cost typically has to be borne by the patient, protruding ears are an exception for children and statutory and private health insurance generally covers the correction costs. However there must be a compelling medical or even aesthetic reason for the health insurance companies to pay the costs for children. We are always happy to offer you the best advice in this area when planning an operation.
