Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
Ears are your prime organs for hearing and balance, but they also play an important role in creating a pleasing aesthetic proportion from all angles. Ear prominence and ear deformities can significantly affect one’s self esteem and may often lead to a lifetime of self-consciousness.
The ear’s external appearance can be improved through otoplasty, a cosmetic surgical procedure that resculpts and reshapes the outer ear.
The most common otoplasty surgery involves “ear pinning,” or the correction of protruding ears.
What is Otoplasty Surgery For?
- Abnormally large ear lobes
- Lop ear (ear tip folds down and trends forward)
- Shell ear (certain features of a normal ear are missing, such as the curve in the outer rim and other natural folds)
- Cupped ear (ear smaller than normal)
With many possible outer ear concerns, your MAXiM-affiliated surgeon can personalize otoplasty ear sculpture to your specific needs. The surgeon will also provide pre- and post-op instructions prior to your procedure.
