Otoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that aims to reduce the size of large, floppy ears. While there are many different scenarios and procedures within the field of otolaryngology, the most common is referred to as “pinning back the ears,” which helps to correct ears that protrude too far from the head.
Ear correction surgery or otoplasty is one of the few cosmetic surgical procedures permitted or recommended for children, because unusual ears can make a child a victim of bullying. Even in the absence of bullying, unusual ear shapes can make a child or adult self-conscious and affect self-esteem.
Otoplasty can pin back, reshape or reduce the size of ears, making them more symmetrical and proportionate relative to the size and shape of the face and head.
The incisions for ear correction surgery are made behind the ear, in the natural fold where the head and ear join.
Revision/Corrective Surgery Cover
All Somnio’s major hospitals in Thailand offer a client guarantee policy to cover revision operations in Thailand should it be deemed necessary by the hospital’s board. If revision surgery is required, as a result from your elective surgery in Thailand, the Hospital Board will offer full or partial contributions towards the cost for the operation (could include: flights, accommodation and surgeon/theatre costs).
In addition to the client guarantee, if flights and accommodation are NOT covered by the hospital for the revision surgery, Somnio offers a Return Travel Warranty, that can be purchased separately, covering you in the unfortunate case that you are required to return to Thailand and the travel portion has not been covered. This warranty will cover flights and accommodation for the duration of stay required by the Hospital board for the surgery.
Additional elective medical coverage is also available through our partners at Global Protective Solutions. GPS provides benefits and services for both travel related accidents / illness as well as a host of benefits in the event of a medical complication that is a result from your elective procedure.
