What does Otoplasty consist in?

The ears are a very important part of the facial structure. Any malformation or aesthetic defect of the ear can considerably affect your overall attractiveness.

Otoplasty is a very simple aesthetic treatment involving minimally invasive surgery to correct the aesthetic defects of the ears. This intervention is usually carried out at the age of 6 or 7, when the ears are fully developed and the patient is socially aware. It is performed under local anaesthetic in adults and under general anaesthetic in children.

The most common problem with the ears is “protruding ears”. In this case, otoplasty will correct the angle formed by the ear and the head by up to 30 degrees, that is, pin back the ears so that they don’t stick out at the sides.

Otoplasty harmonises and recovers the symmetry between all the facial features.
