What is Otoplasty?
Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, can improve the shape, position or ear proportion. Otoplasty can correct a defect in the ear structure that is present by the birth that becomes apparent with development or it can treat deformed ears caused by injury.
Ear surgery creates a natural shape, it is bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of minor deformities can have profound beneﬁts to appearance and self-esteem. If protruding or disﬁgured ears bother you or to your child, you may consider plastic surgery.
Ear surgery can treat specifically:
Too big ears — a rare condition called macrotia
Protruding ears may occur on one or both sides in diferents degrees — not associated with hearing loss
Adult dissatisfaction with previous ear surgery
