Otoplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery that reshapes a person’s external ear. This procedure makes the ear much less prominent by reducing the actually size or the angle that it sits, whether it be for one or both ears. Those who are ideal candidates for otoplasty have a broad range of ages and conditions.
Candidates who schedule an otoplasty procedure do so on an out-patient basis and the surgery is usually done under general anesthesia. Most patients are out of the public eye for a week. After that, a lighter dressing, very much like a headband, is worn at night for just a few weeks after the surgery.
