Ear plastic surgery - Otoplasty

People whose ears are in defective due to accidents may undergo 4 reconstruction surgeries in which the surgeon makes an ear to the patient using rib cartilage.

If prominent or deformed ears bother you or your child, think about plastic surgery. Ear surgery also called otoplasty can amend the shape, position, and proportion of your ear. This surgery can resolve the structural defects of ears related to birth, problems that occur with growth, and ear deformities caused by damage. Ear surgery returns the normal shape of the ear and creates the balance and proportion of the ears and face. Correction of small defects can have a profound impact on the appearance and confidence of the person.
