Otoplasty

Otoplasty

 

Also called cosmetic ear surgery, it is a procedure designed to correct defects on the ears. When the patient shows this defect, this procedure can be performed on ages starting at 7 years old. This is because at this age the auricle is already fully developed. In patients younger than 15 years old, it is recommended the use of general anesthesia since the patient is required to cooperate. After this age, local anesthesia can be used. This procedure consists in sculpting and reshaping an abnormal cartilage, seeking to improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear.
