Otoplasty, also known as ‘Ear Reshaping’ or ‘Pinnaplasty’ is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is carried out to re-size the ear, reshape the cartilage of the ears and/or hold the ears back. Prominent or protruding ears can be an embarrassing for some people which may result an low self-esteem and confidence. Ear reshaping can make ears look less obvious, reduce their size,
An incision is made behind the ear in the fold where the ear meets your head. Cartilage and skin is usually removed or pinned back with a few fine stitches. Once the procedure is complete, the incisions will be stitched up and a dressing wrapped around your head to support the cartilage in its new place.
