Otoplasty is the correction of protruding, large or deformed ears to improve facial balance. This surgery is performed on adults or children for a variety of reasons, including:
- Correction of macrotia, a condition that results in large ears
- Reconstruction of a defective, deformed or absent ear
- Improved ear shape
- Address the protrusion of one or both ears
The incision is hidden behind the ears, and can be beneficial to improving a patient’s esteem and appearance. Schedule a consultation with Dr. DiFrancesco at 404.377.3474 or contact us online to tell us about your aesthetic goals.
Otoplasty is an outpatient procedure performed under local anesthesia with sedation. Many of our patients return to light activity in a day or two and make a full recovery within several weeks.
