This cosmetic ear surgery is mostly for those patients who are highly self-conscious and unhappy about the angle or size of their ears. The Otoplasty surgery involves the removal of skin and cartilage from behind the ear. The ear is then sculpted towards a position closer to the head. Stitches are often used to hold the new shape into place.
An alternative to ear plastic surgery is a procedure where no ear cartilage is removed and stiches are used to fold the exposed cartilage back onto itself, which also reshapes the ear.
