Otoplasty

Ear surgery improves the shape or position of the ears, such as correcting protruding ears or restoring ears to a balanced, natural appearance.

The human ear has reached 80-85 percent of its adult size as early as age five or six, allowing an otoplasty to be an option for adults and children.

What should I expect?

An otoplasty is an outpatient surgical procedure that repositions and reshapes the cartilage within the ear. Incisions are virtually invisible, as they are made in the folds of the ear. Although full healing may take a few months to return, the improvement is immediately apparent.
