Otoplasty – ear surgery
Otoplasty – also known as cosmetic ear surgery – is a procedure for changing the shape, position or size of the ears. The reasons for undergoing ear surgery vary, depending on the needs and problems of the patients. This may be due to ear deformation due to injury, accident, or birth defect. Abnormal shape or size of the ears can affect the well-being, self-esteem or mental health of patients, which may also be a reason to decide to undergo otoplasty surgery. Cosmetic ear surgery is also used among children, significantly improving the quality of life and raising confidence.
