& How It Works

What is Otoplasty

Otoplasty is a surgical procedure to change the shape, position or size of the ear.

Otoplasty can be done at any age after the ears have reached their full size, usually after age 5 through adulthood.

Otoplasty techniques vary based on what kind of correction is needed.

The Ear structure maybe prominent in appearance in 2 aspects:

  • The Angle between the head and ear may be too high
  • The upper curve on the ear maybe under developed.
