Otoplasty is the surgical procedure for reshaping the ears. There are many reasons why someone may desire his or her ear shape to be altered or adjusted. Most commonly, a patient seeks surgical intervention when they are concerned about their ear being prominent, meaning it protrudes high off the skull. Other patients may be unhappy with the shape of the ear or ear lobe, and surgical treatment may be the best option for them to regain confidence and resolve their aesthetic concerns.
How Ear Reshaping Surgery Works
We customize ear reshaping surgery to target the specific problem someone has with their ear shape. It can range from setting the ear back closer to the skull, to repairing a misshapen or torn ear lobe. Since each individual is unique, and there are a range of results that can be attained; the exact procedure will vary from person to person. However, generally speaking, the cartilage and skin of the ear will be curved, bent, cut or made smaller in order to best achieve your desired appearance.
