Ear correction surgery at Boston West Hospital
Ear correction surgery, also called otoplasty, aims to make your ears look more natural and proportional. It can involve repositioning, reshaping or resizing your ears and it may also improve your self-esteem.
Men and women choose to have an otoplasty if they are unhappy with their ears. Ears can be a prominent feature if they protrude, appear disproportional in size or are irregularly shaped. You may have been born this way or you may have misshapen ears due to an injury.
Ear correction surgery is performed under general anaesthetic and involves making a small incision behind your ear so that cartilage can be removed or adjusted. It usually takes one to two hours and scarring is hidden behind your ears/p>
