Ear Reshaping (Otoplasty)
Ear surgery is usually done to set prominent ears closer to the head, reduce the size of large ears, or reshape malformed ears. Our ears are almost fully grown by age four, and the earlier the surgery, the less discomfort (psychological / emotional) the person will have to endure. Some patients prefer to wait until adulthood to have their ear surgery. This procedure involves reshaping the ear cartilage to obtain a balanced, natural and well-proportioned appearance.
