Ear Surgery is clinically referred to as otoplasty. Ear surgery is a unique cosmetic surgery procedure because it’s elected for children as much as it is chosen by adults.
Ear surgery is generally chosen to correct protruding ears or overly large ears. Well positioned ears can have an impact on the overall look and on one’s self confidence.
Many children are teased during childhood, whether they have protruding ears or overly large ears clinically referred to as macrotia. Ear surgery can correct these issues by creating an overall balance in the ears’ position and size.
