Otoplasty

Its purpose is to correct the position of excessively detached ears, by placing them closer to the head.
This is achieved through a weakening of the cartilage of the ear itself and creating a cartilage fold, removing excess cartilage and existing skin.

This surgery is usually performed under local anesthesia, assisted by intravenous sedation, on an outpatient basis.
