Otoplasty is the surgery which is done for ear correction. Otoplasty may be done to improve the appearance or in some cases improve the function of ear and for reconstruction also. Otoplasty is an ear surgery which is done for improving the proportion and shape of ears.  Most doctors do not perform ear correction or Otoplasty until the child has grown up. Ear correction surgery can bring about huge changes to a person’s life. Otoplasty or the ear correction surgery can completely correct the problem of protruding ears. An Otoplasty can completely cure this problem and the results are achieved immediately after the surgery.

Who can undergo ear correction surgery?

  Ear correction surgery may be performed in adults if they meet the following criteria:-

  • Barring the ear defect they are in overall good health and will be able to undergo the stress of the ear correction surgery or Otoplasty.
  • They have true expectations from the ear correction surgery.

Otoplasty may be done on children in following cases:-

  • Except special cases, in children ear correction is done after the age of five.
  • They can cooperate with the doctors before and after the surgery.

Ear correction surgery for protrusion:-

In India, Otoplasty is mostly done for correction of protrusion. Newborn babies may require ear correction in case their protruding ears do not correct by themselves as grow older. In such cases Otoplasty is performed after a few years.

Ear correction surgery may be performed in certain cases in newborns as their cartilages are still very soft. This makes the process of ear correction surgery much easier. The Otoplasty in such cases is done using a splint which supports the ears once the ear correction surgery is complete. With Otoplasty very complex cases of ear repair and restoration can be handled very easily.

Terminology associated with Otoplasty surgery:-

  • Constricted ear: – This is one of the most common conditions that are treated by Otoplasty and other surgery methods. It causes the ear to be folded on the top.
  • Ear axis: – The line along which human ear grows. The treatment plan by Otoplasty requires this as a fundamental.
  • Macrotia: – A condition which causes excessively large ears.
