What is ear reshaping?
Ear reshaping is a cosmetic surgery that reshapes the ears so that they are more proportional to the remainder of your facial features. Commonly referred to as ear pinning or otoplasty, it can be used to reduce the size of larger ears or to correct the shape of the ears.
Otoplasty is usually performed on children between the ages of 4 and 6, but it can be performed on adults. This involves altering the cartilage of the ear, with stitches holding the cartilage permanently in place.
Other ear contouring procedures are used to reduce ear size (macrotia), correct deformities or injuries, fix misshapen ear cartilage and enhance the overall appearance of the ears.
