Otoplasty is the reconstruction of the outer ear. Ears may be cosmetically enhanced or corrected by this simple procedure. Like Rhinoplasty, otoplasty too has to be done with utmost care. Otoplasty surgery can involve a combination of moving, reshaping, adding, or removing structural ear elements. Otoplasty Procedures include: Bringing the ears closer to the head (often called ear pinning) Reducing the size of very big ears Reshaping various bends in the cartilage Reconstructive procedures deal with the deformed, or absent (microtic) ears
