Specialty of Plastic surgery

Otoplasty is the facial surgery performed to correct prominent ears and remodel, managing to improve their proportion and position. The intervention is responsible for the repositioning of protruding ears that are too far apart from the skull, and to downsize if they are too large, and to reshape the pendant lobe or recreate the outer fold if necessary. Depending on the age of the patient, the operation can be performed under general or local anaesthesia. Typically, the procedure involves a small incision behind the ear to reshape the cartilage and make it fold in appropriate areas. This way a more natural ear is achieved and the scar is hidden in the back.
