Otoplasty | Ear Surgery
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.
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.
