facial appearance. The procedure reduces the appearance

excess fat is removed and underlying muscles are tightened

Otoplasty (Shaping of the ear)
Ear surgery, or Otoplasty, is a
procedure that can reduce or completely remove the
appearance of protruding ears. This surgical procedure
is designed to bring the ears closer to the head,
or to reduce the size of the ears. This procedure
is especially helpful for young children in helping
them avoid having to endure teasing and ridicule from
others. The ears are almost fully grown when children
reach the age of 4 and this is the age most children
can begin having this operation. Ear surgery can be
performed on adults as well, with no additional risks
During the procedure the surgeon
makes a small incision in the back of the ear to expose
the ear cartilage. The cartilage is then sculpted,
and bent back toward the head. Stitches may be used
to help maintain the ear's new shape. Other techniques
are used to improve upon the appearance of the ears.
Consult with your cosmetic surgeon and ask about the
technique they use for ear surgery. Ear surgery results
in more natural-looking ears that lie flatter against
the head and appear more normal.

understanding about ear surgery, please consult with
