Otoplasty is a surgical procedure performed to correct large, protruding or otherwise deformed ears. Unlike most other plastic surgery procedures, otoplasty is often performed on children, as well as adults. In addition to correcting ears that are naturally large or deformed, otoplasty can also repair damage caused by an accident or injury.
During the otoplasty procedure, an incision is made behind the ear to reshape the cartilage and adjust the size and position of the ears for a more natural-looking appearance. For children, this procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia, while adults usually require only local anesthesia and sedation. Both ears may be operated on in order to achieve better balance. The results of the otoplasty procedure are permanent and scars will fade with time to become less noticeable.
