This operation concerns patients whose main aesthetic deformity regards size, shape and distance of the ears from the hair line. In medical terminology they are referred to as protruding ears.
It is a congenital aesthetic deformity in which a part of the ear does not grow normally, while some other parts may grow excessively, (concha) so that the ear cannot have a normal shape, size, and distance from the hair line.
It is a procedure that permanently fixes the problem of the specific aesthetic deformity.
Am I the right candidate for Otoplasty?
Candidates for otoplasty are patients with:
Disturbances in the normal shape of the ear
Patients who have undergone otoplasty surgery and are not satisfied with the outcome
What is the right age for an otoplasty operation?
The appropriate age for otoplasty surgery is before the beginning of school. At the age of 5-6 the development of the ear is complete. A surgery at that age fixes the problem permanently, relieving the child from major psychological problems.
