Otoplasty is cosmetic surgery of the ear to reduce the appearance of a protuberant ear. One or both ear may look to big for multiple reasons. Commonly, the ear is missing an extra fold or bend which makes the ear “stick” out too much. Sometimes, one ear is simply bigger than the other. At your evaluation, your surgeon will be able to exam your ear and detail for you the best way to repair and improve the appearance of your ear.
