Cosmetic Ear Surgery

Cosmetic Ear Surgery

Ear Reshaping is known as – Otoplasty – a type of cosmetic surgery that is used to improve the appearance of a person’s external ears. This type of ear surgery is typically performed to bring ears closer to the head or reduce the size of large ears.

Otoplasty can be performed under a general anesthetic as an inpatient procedure (which is generally the case for children undergoing the operation) but is often performed as an outpatient procedure with a local anesthetic.

The procedure, which generally takes no more than three hours, typically involves a small incision at the back of the ear where cartilage is reshaped or removed allowing the ear to rest closer to the head.
