Otoplasty

Informations or Appointments

What is it?

It is the surgery performed to correct the wadding ears.

Indication

Otoplasty is indicated for improving the self-confidence of children and adults who have forward-projecting ears, or fanned ears. It seeks harmony between the facial features and can be performed from the age of 6.

How is it done?

Through posterior incisions, the aesthetic defects of the ears are corrected, which basically rests on the absence of the previous folds and the increase in the distance between them and the head. The ears then assume a more natural shape and position.
