Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)
Like the nose, the ears can often be too prominent. Like rhinoplasty, otoplasty offers people the chance to make their inner visions of themselves a reality. Ear pinning, as otoplasty is more casually known, is an effective and minimally invasive cosmetic surgery procedure that can dramatically alter the shape and position of the ears. In most cases, otoplasty is performed by reshaping the cartilage at the crease behind the ear, allowing the rest of the ear structure to rest closer to the head after healing. Ear surgery can also correct the absence of a fold in the upper part of the ear, creating a more conventional and pleasing shape out of existing cartilage.
Those whose ears stick out farther than they would like can get an idea of the possibilities of otoplasty by simply pulling their ears closer to their heads in front of a mirror. As you will see, the improvement in appearance from this simple procedure can be dramatic.
