What is Otoplasty?

Otoplasty is a cosmetic procedure to improve the appearance of the ears. It may be performed to pin back ears that stick out, reshape disfigured ears, or resize them. Most issues, whether present from birth or occurred due to trauma, can be resolved through this procedure.

What to expect during surgery?

The procedure is performed after administering local or general anesthesia. The type of anesthesia depends on the nature of surgery. Depending on the purpose of the surgery the procedural steps may vary. However, for reshaping the main steps are:

Making small incisions

Removing excess cartilage and skin

Remodeling cartilage

Stitching it into place

If you think reshaping or repositioning will help the appearance of your ears then chances are this procedure can help you. If you want this kind of help you can visit us for a consultation and we can discuss your case.

The only main risks involved are cosmetic, should the surgery not go as planned. If you are in the hands of an experienced surgeon, there is little to no chance of this happening. There is very rarely a chance of this procedure affecting your hearing.

You will not feel any pain during the procedure since anesthesia will be used to numb the area or to help you sleep through the operation.

The cost of the procedure depends on the nature of the surgery and the amount of work being done. It is not possible to say what yours will cost without a consultation.
