Also known as otoplasty
Aesthetic surgery of the ear, or otoplasty, is a procedure that alters the position, proportion as well as the size of the ears. The outcome of otoplasty varies greatly depending on the changes that the patient desires. The outcome can improve self-confidence, especially in children and teenagers. Prominent ears or those that stick out, can be treated to flatten the ears against the head. If one ear is positioned higher than the other, ear repositioning can create symmetry. Large, oversized ears can be reduced in conjunction with other ear issues that need to be addressed. Ear surgery can provide a boost in self-confidence and is a low-risk procedure that can be performed in an office surgery suite setting.
