Otoplasty, or cosmetic ear surgery, is a procedure performed to help patients improve the appearance of their ears. During this cosmetic procedure, a plastic surgeon uses strategically placed incisions to reshape the patient’s ear cartilages and positional them in an ideal and aesthetically pleasing position. Otoplasty can be performed on both infant and adult patients to help them achieve the desired ear shape. At Dr. Prajwal's Aesthetics Clinic in Kanhangad, you can discuss your cosmetic concerns and the possible solutions with our world-renowned plastic surgeon and see how you can benefit from otoplasty.

Who Is a Candidate for Otoplasty?

Otoplasty can be performed on both children and adults. It is not necessary for children to have permanent cartilage when the surgery is performed.

How Does Otoplasty Correct Ear Appearance?
