ear surgery (OTOPlasty)
Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a simple surgical procedure that repositions the ears closer to the head and can sometimes reduce overly large ears. This procedure is highly customizable; however, most patients choose this treatment to see their ears lie flatter against their heads.
Most otoplasty candidates ears’ protrude more than three millimeters from the scalp.
Who can benefit from ear surgery?
With adults, otoplasty is usually performed under local anesthesia with a sedative. Children usually do best with general anesthesia, so that they will be completely asleep.
