Otoplasty

Otoplasty or Ear Pinning Surgery corrects deformities or defects to the external ears and improves the ears aesthetically. The word Otoplasty is derived from the Greek words ‘Ōtoûs’ that means ‘Ear’ and ‘Plassein’ that means ‘to shape’. It is a relatively easy facial cosmetic procedure and can dramatically enhance the appearance and the emotional well-being of the patient.

You may not think of the ears as a particularly important beauty attribute but they do have a significant impact in overall appearance. Ears that are out of proportion with the rest of the face can attract unkind remarks. Most children with physical flaws such as ears that stick out too much, or with large or uneven ears, do survive childhood teasing and grow to become well-adjusted adults, but few can honestly look back and say that the teasing didn’t affect them in some way or another. But this is preventable with a relatively easy facial cosmetic procedure called Otoplasty. Ear defects tend to run in families and Otoplasty can help improve abnormally-shaped ears, for the young or old.
