Prominent Ears and Defects – Why Ear Otoplasty Surgery ?

Otoplasty is an ear surgery to correct prominent ears. It basically involves pinning back the ear protrusion so that a patient’s facial balance is corrected and the patient gets a normal pair of ears.

Otoplasty is not just restricted to ear pinning, it involves reconstructing ears that suffer from congenital damage or in cases where the ear structure has suffered damage due to physical trauma or injury.
