Otoplasty is the technical name for what is more commonly known as ear surgery. Those with congenital ear defects or ear damage from trauma can benefit from otoplasty. The procedure is typically minimally invasive, and scarring is hidden by the natural creases of the skin. Contact a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Fred Bressler to discuss your options.
Corrective ear surgery can treat a range of aesthetic or functional defects of the ear. From cauliflower ear to prominent ears that protrude outward, ear surgery can be tailored to enhance the ear’s appearance. Some procedure types require incisions, where others simply involve suturing the cartilage. The technique will depend on what is appropriate for the patient’s condition.
