Is otoplasty suitable for you?
Otoplasty is best for patients with good health, active disease, or patients with no prior medical condition and with realistic expectations for the outcome of the surgery. In general, otoplasty can be performed at any age after the ears have reached (or nearly reached) adult sizes.
Otoplasty provides a more natural shape while providing balance and proportion to the ears and faces. Correction of even small deformities can be important in terms of appearance and self-confidence of people. If protruding or amorphous ears distract you or your child, you can consider a plastic surgery.
Otoplasty adjusts the ears closer to the head and may involve molding, shaping, or removing the cartilage to reduce the protrusion of the ear. This procedure will not affect your sense hearing. The operation covers the outer ear area, not just the middle ear or the inner ear where hearing is performed. After the surgery, incisions and scars are well concealed so that they do not appear behind the ear.
