Short Hair and Prominent Ears

Short hair does not disguise prominent ears. However, since the incisions are hidden in the fold behind the ears, short hair is not a problem for concealing the Otoplasty incision.

Many men and women leave their hair long to hide their prominent ears, but short hair is not an obstacle for Otoplasty. The incision for cosmetic ear surgery is hidden in the fold behind the ear, and usually heals very well. It is not necessary to cut your hair before Otoplasty; however, after the procedure, you’ll have the option to do so.
