Otoplasties (surgical reconstruction of ear deformities)

Otoplasties, surgical reconstruction of ear deformities, also known as cosmetic ear surgery relocates large or protruding ears closer to the head. It is commonly performed on children. The ear is reshaped and brought closer to the head by the rearrangement of cartilage and sometimes skin is removed from behind the ear. Stitches keep the wound closed while the wound heals.
