Otoplasty is the surgery which repositions and gives a new shape to the ear to give a nicer appearance (a position adequate, more attached to the head, or a smaller size). The ears have grown almost completely at the age of 4, so that starting at age 4-6 can be done. However, this surgery is always performed in adults.
Is the surgery that I want? Is this surgery effective?
An excessive separation of the ears can cause obsession and diminish your self-confidence already since childhood. If you want to improve this aspect, both for aesthetic purpose such as psychological, this is the procedure that you will require. During the first consultation, Dr. Garcia-Guilarte will carry out an assessment of the problem and he will recommend the most effective technique for your case. He will also provide you instructions to prepare for the surgery.
Surgery and Anaesthetics
Otoplasty is performed in the operating room, in a clinic or hospital. The surgical procedure would be done on an outpatient way, that is to say, you can go home the same day of the operation.
