What is Ear Reshaping?
Ear reshaping, also known as otoplasty, ear correction and pinnaplasty, is a surgery that involves changing the size of the ears and pinning back them. Ear reshaping is a very safe procedure and it can be carried out on adults and children. However, for the children under the age of 5, the ear correction surgery can be dangerous.
If the shape of the ears cause people psychological distress, then undergoing an otoplasty will be a reasonable solution. Ear correction is performed thinning the cartilaginous structure from behind the ear.
How is Otoplasty Performed?
Length of Ear Reshaping Procedure: Ear Reshaping generally takes 2 to 3 hours.
Inpatient or Outpatient: Ear reshaping is an outpatient procedure.
Anaesthesia: Both general and local anaesthesia can be performed for Ear Reshaping Surgery. It will be decided by your surgeon.
