Otoplasty Ear Pinning - Sydney or other??

Recommended Posts

I am searching for a good surgeon to perform Otoplasty/Ear Pinning surgery on my prominent ears.

 

I would prefer Sydney but consider travel anywhere to maybe Bris or Melb to get the procedure done.

 

One thing I know is I would rather pay more and get a quality surgeon that specialises in this, rather than end up having to get revision surgeries done because it is not done right.

 

Can anyone recommend anyone worth looking into?

 

So far on my short list I have Dr Nicholas Lotz and Dr Mark Kohout and Dr Jake Lim. They are all in Sydney.

 

Hopefully someone can recommend a good surgeon :) Thanks!!

hi Philau,

 

I haven't had this procedure, but I have had other face work done by Dr Nettle. He is amazing. Its a long wait to get in to see him but worth the wait.

 

Good luck!

I just had an otoplasty done by Dr Michael Miroshnik in Sydney on Tuesday. I haven't had my bandages taken off, but based on the fact I have not heard a bad word about his work, I'm sure I will be happy with the result.

My 8  year old son has scheduled for an otoplasty surgery this Friday. My son's ears are protrude and large. He has been always teased at school. Right then I decided I never wanted him to hear anything painful like that. We went for our consultation in Toronto based plastic surgery clinic a week back and decided now would be the best time. I'm a nervous wreck. I'm scared for him to go under the general anesthesia, I'm nervous about the recovery, and I'm worried about the results. Especially since this is all elective. I will post after surgery if you are interested, to let you know what our experience was.

I had otoplasty done a little over 2 weeks ago and after 3 years of research on both the surgery and the surgeon, I decided to go with Dr. Kourosh Tavakoli who is located in Sydney. I walked in and was assessed, informed of what the issues with my ears were, what the surgery would involve and the potential complications (which thankfully with this procedure there aren't many and in my case, none). He was thorough, explained the entire procedure in both technical and everyday terms that I would understand and left me excited and confident about the surgery. I booked the surgery in for the week after.

 

It was a day surgery and I was out and awake in about 2-3 hours. The pain was minimal and bearable. Dr. Tavakoli came to see me after the surgery to see how I was feeling and let me know how the surgery went. I visited his office the next day to remove the bandages and was shown how to wear my headband and care for the wounds.

 

Once I saw the result, I was shocked. I was shocked because I wasn't used to me looking at myself in the mirror and seeing what I had just seen. It was perfect! Swelling was inside the ear and not my entire face so I was able to see the result right then and there the day after surgery. I was impressed and hoped that when I was able to take the headband off for good, I would still be happy. 3 weeks in and I am no longer wearing the band, the stitches have dissolved, numbness is slightly noticeable (but it is normal for a few months after surgery) and I have never been more confident wearing my hair up and as a person in general.

 

The level of professionalism, attitude, knowledge and passion he has for what he does is incredible and I would definitely recommend his work on otoplasty to anyone who is thinking about doing it.
