Otoplasty is a type of plastic surgery aimed to change the shape of the ears.
The procedure is performed on both cartilage and soft tissues. In most cases, the surgeon’s main goal is to correct asymmetries and make the ears proportional with the oval of the face.
The otoplasty has the biggest demand at Avanta.
Otoplasty can be performed from preschool age (6-7 years).
Apparent indications to otoplasty:
- Excessively protruding ears
- Asymmetric auricles
- Large earlobes
- Cup-shaped ears
Although children’s ear cartilages are softer and more compliant, otoplasty is equally efficient for adults.
You should note that the auricle has a complex shape and anatomy.
Even despite the achievements in modern surgery, it’s crucial to admit that a 100% recovery is nearly impossible to achieve, just like absolute symmetry and proportionality of the ears.
At Avanta Center for Plastic Surgery, we’ll help you secure the ear shape that will make your face look even more harmonious.
