Otoplasty is surgery to correct the shape of the ears. Sometimes this is referred to as ear pinning, or ear setback; however otoplasty can involve much more complex and refined reshaping of the ear than just “pinning them back”. Children born with ears that are larger or protrude farther from their head than their peers’ often suffer from teasing that can hinder their self-confidence for years to come. Adults who did not have the chance to have the procedure when they were younger are still able to dramatically improve the appearance of their ears with otoplasty. The ears of children, women, and men of almost any age can be improved with otoplasty. More information about ear surgery can be found here.
