Ear surgery (otoplasty) is a procedure performed to reshape the ear and give it a more normal appearance. The otoplasty surgery is usually done on ears that are too large or that protrude from the head. Many times, the problem is caused by an undeveloped middle fold of the ear. It is one of the few cosmetic operations performed on children.
During a Dallas otoplasty surgery procedure, the cartilage of the ear is weakened so that it bends into its new shape. At the same time stitches are placed in the cartilage to hold the ear in position until the new shape has formed. The results of otoplasty are subtle and strategic and can have a very positive effect on one’s overall appearance.
