Otoplasty: Ear Surgery’s Fancy Name - Hughes Center Blog
Spock? Elephant Man? Cauliflower Ear? If these not-so-nice names sound familiar for you or a loved one, you understand what it’s like to have an ear deformity, and probably have been living with this condition for some time. Chances are you might have wondered about having some sort of ear surgery done since the onset of the condition, but may not have known which steps to take. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Otoplasty, best known as ear pinning surgery, “May improve the shape, position or proportion of the ear.” This may include anything from correcting an ear structure defect that was present at birth, or it may treat deformed ears caused by injury.
The cosmetic surgeons at The Hughes Center Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medical Spa in New Jersey and Philadelphia are now offering Otoplasty. This procedure may correct minor deformities, and also improve appearance, along with self-esteem. The following ear issues should be treatable through the Otoplasty procedure:
- Overly large ears, which are due to macrotia, a rare condition
- One or both ears protruding, but not connected to hearing loss
- Not satisfied with prior ear surgery
