Otoplasty or ear surgery consists of correcting, by means of surgical techniques, the shape and position of the ears. The most common defect are the so-called «protruding ears», which affects approximately 10% of the population.
In adults, we usually perform the intervention with local anaesthesia; however, we recommend anaesthesia with sedation for children. Hospitalisation is not necessary.
We must not forget that it is a surgical procedure. For optimal results and in order to avoid unnecessary complications, you should always consult with a Maxillofacial Surgery Specialist.
