What is Cosmetic Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)?
Otoplasty is the surgical reshaping of the outer ear, to correct either deformities or make them look better. Otyoplasty can be either a cosmetic or reconstructive procedure. Pinning back prominent ears is an example of cosmetic otoplasty, while surgery to build up the outer ear after injury is an example of reconstructive otoplasty. Otoplasty more commonly occurs during childhood, but can be done on patients of any age.
