Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, is a treatment that changes the angle and shape of protruding or uneven ears in children and adults.
Micro ear surgery procedure reshapes some portion of the cartilage in the ears, enabling them to lie closer to the side of the head. Generally, the operation is done on children between the ages of 5 and 15. This is because a child’s ear cartilage is delicate and easy to reshape.
In teenagers and adults, the firmer cartilage of fully formed ears does not allow the same degree of molding. But micro ear surgery is suitable for both teenagers as well as adults.
The aesthetic advantages of ear surgery procedure will vary depends upon the shape of your ears. Mostly micro ear surgery procedure is performed to adjust prominent ears by setting them back closer to the head. Micro ear surgery is also used to adjust ears of different sizes.
