Otoplasty is the surgery that is performed to reposition the prominent ears or «on the shoulder» to a more normal position, closer to the head, or to reduce the size of the large ears. Generally, it is a surgery that takes place in children between 4 and 14 years old. Otoplasty can also be performed in adults, there being no greater risks in this age.
Indeed, it is the most effective solution for the defects of the ears, which are the cause of most complexes, since they can hardly be disguised. Currently, the physical aspect is the letter of introduction to the world, so it is about giving a positive image through the body.
In the otoplasty surgery, incisions are made in the back of the ear. Through them the cartilage is sculpted and some parts are extracted, so that the doctor can shape the ear. This mechanics is repeated in the other ear, since the surgeons will try to give the most natural and similar appearance to both ears, although the problems will only be seen in one of them. You do not have to worry about the scar, because it will not be noticed.
