Otoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that is designed to address the shape, size, and proportion of the outer ear. Having prominent ears is a common problem that numerous people have, and this surgery can help restore balance to your face by addressing your prominent ears.
The procedure is invasive, and adults who undergo the treatment are given local anesthesia or mild sedation. Your doctor will make an incision in the crease behind the ears to help limit the visibility of post-surgical marks. Once your doctor reshapes and repositions the cartilage to a more pleasing position, he will close the incisions and bandage the ears.
An otoplasty surgery can help you get the aesthetically pleasing ears you have always wanted. If you’re interested in learning more about the surgery, contact our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. John Harbison, a highly skilled facial plastic surgeon.
