Cosmetic ear surgery (Otoplasty) is the operation made for eliminating the outer ear deformation that arises genetically, congenitally or develops later on. The purpose of the operation is to normalize the angle between the ear and head.
The most suitable time for having a cosmetic ear surgery is between ages 4-15. However, this operation can be made at all ages.
While children have the cosmetic ear surgery in the operating room environment, under general anesthesia, adults are operated in the clinic environment, under sedation. Otoplasty operations generally take 1-1.5 hours.
