Otoplasty


Ear plastic surgery, known as otoplasty, is a method to correct the shape and position of the ear pinna by sculpting the cartilage. This procedure is used to enhance the appearance of the ears, emphasizing the aesthetic aspect.

The operation is relatively brief, typically lasting about an hour. It can be performed under general anesthesia or with local anesthesia combined with sedation.

The procedure involves making small incisions behind the ears, aiming to hide any scarring as much as possible. Separating the skin and muscles from the cartilage allows the surgeon to adjust its shape by shaving and sculpting. For protruding ears correction, the cartilage is tightened using special sutures at various points, achieving the effect of bringing the ear pinna closer to the head. The incision is then closed.

The benefits of otoplasty are associated with achieving the desired shape and position of the ears, which can enhance physical appearance and self-confidence. Otoplasty can assist individuals who feel uncomfortable or are dissatisfied with the shape or position of their ears.

This intervention is recommended for those with ears that excessively stand away from their head or other ear deformities that make them undesirable or unattractive. Although the procedure is most commonly performed on children and teenagers, it can be done at any age if there's a desire to improve the appearance of the ears.
