Otoplasty refers to the surgical reshaping of the pinna or outer ear. A person who has sustained damage to their ears or was born with a congenital anomaly may choose to undergo reconstructive surgery. This is a medical procedure to build up or repair the outer ear. A nonsurgical technique known as ear Molding or Splinting can be effective if the child starts receiving treatment in the first 2-3 weeks of life.
This is a safe, simple procedure that is suitable for infants within the first few weeks of life. This is when the cartilage in the ears is at its softest.
A plastic surgeon will usually carry out an otoplasty. Sometimes, however, an ear, nose, and throat surgeon or a pediatric surgeon will do it.
Some types of surgery do not need an incision. During this procedure, the surgeon will place a needle into the cartilage to increase its flexibility. Then, they will use stitches to reshape or fix the ear may be faster, with a lower risk of complications.
