Otoplasty consists on an incision posteriorly to the external ear with the removal of a simple graft of skin and then a reshaping of the cartilaginous support framework of the pinna using small stitches in order to recreate the correct anatomy of the external ear. after that a medication is applied to immobilize the ear using an elastic band for a week.
For adults you can even perform the surgery under local anesthesia only. this procedure lasts about one hour in our clinic.
