Question : How do I know if I’m a suitable candidate for otoplasty?
Answer : Otoplasty is a procedure performed to change the shape of the ear. The goal of the otoplasty surgery is to bring the ear closer to the side of the head and re-create the natural folds of the ear. In addition, otoplasty can also be used to equalize the size of the ears if they are very asymmetrical. If you have any of these concerns, then you’re a good candidate for otoplasty. Otoplasty can be performed on patients of any age. In general, I like to perform otoplasty on kids when they’re around age five. I also see many adults who would like otoplasty performed.
