- Improving the shape/position of the ears
- In children, correcting a defect in ear structure to make them appear normal
Predictability The cartilage has a memory and tends to want to go back to its original shape; hence, the need for a pressure dressing for the first week and the need to continue wearing it at night for a few additional weeks after your otoplasty surgery.
Discomfort during procedure None. It is performed under local with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
Downtime One week.
Cost The cost of plastic surgery of the ear depends on the anatomy (shape and thickness of skin and cartilage).
