Otoplasty is a surgical procedure performed on children and adults to re-contour or pin back protruding ears. Since ears are almost fully grown by the time a child is five years old, children can have the procedure performed at an early age by the Austin-Weston Cosmetic Surgeons. Adults may want to improve the shape, position or consider ear pinning surgery to improve their appearance and profile.
Ear Surgery Procedures
Local or general anesthesia is administered during the otoplasty surgery. New techniques address two problems with the ears – the shell shape and the fold which can be sculpted or reshaped to create a more natural appearance. Your surgeon will consult and help you choose the best procedure for you.
