Ear resculpturing (otoplasty), a minimally invasive outpatient procedure, is typically performed on children ages 4-14 and adults seeking restructuring of the outer ear area for cosmetic reasons.
The purpose of otoplasty is to set prominent ears back closer to the head, improving the shape, proportion, or position of the ear. Otoplasty is often used to correct physical deformities present at birth that can become more prominent over time as the child grows. Otoplasty provides a permanent solution to this disfiguring problem and can generally be performed as an outpatient procedure with minimal downtime required.
Ear Rescuplturing Cost
