Otoplasty is a cosmetic surgery performed to correct prominent or deformed ears. It consists of repositioning the ears closer to the head, reducing their size, or improving their shape.

Who is a good candidate?

A good candidate for Otoplasty is someone who does not feel comfortable with the appearance of their ears either because they find them prominent, asymmetrical, or deformed and who is looking for a definitive change.

Recovery process

After an Otoplasty, it is common to experience swelling and tenderness in the ears during the first few weeks. Intense physical activity should be avoided, and the plastic surgeon's instructions should be followed for optimal recovery. The patient will be able to return to work around the second week.


Moderate sedation.
