Patients who are uncomfortable with the protrusion
of their ears can achieve a solution to the problem by otoplasty.
Having large protruding ears draws attention to a person, which
unfortunately can leave one with low self-esteem. Otoplasty, or ear
surgery, is a common procedure that sets the ears closer to the head and
solves the problem.
Otoplasty involves reshaping the ear cartilage through an incision
behind the ear.
Permanent sutures are placed to keep a natural looking fold. Otoplasty
is an outpatient procedure with a short recovery time.
