Ear surgery, also known as Otoplasty, is performed to correct cartilage deformities in the ear.
In the deformity popularly known as prominent ear, the cartilages in the patient’s auricle are underdeveloped or not developed at all. This causes the distance between the auricle and the skull to widen and the ears to appear prominent when viewed from the front.
How is Otoplasty Performed?
It can be performed under general anesthesia in children and local anesthesia in adults. It is an approximately 1-hour operation with incisions and stitches made behind the ear. It is important to use a hair band for 3-4 weeks after surgery.
