Ears (otoplasty)

An otoplasty is for correcting the anomalies of the cartilage which is present at the auricle and which causes its “detached” appearance.
This operation can be performed on a single ear or on both.
The cartilage of the auricle, responsible for the unsightly shape of the ear, is reshaped.

Three types of this abnormality may be found together:

  • Malformation of the rim of the auricle (helix Valgus): the orientation of the auricle in relation to the side of the skull is too pronounced giving a detached appearance to the ear.
  • Malformation of the concha: the cavity of the external ear is too large, giving the impression of an ear projecting forwards.
  • Malformation of the antihelix: its shape is too smooth due to a lack of wrinkles, giving an unsightly appearance.

Otoplasty can correct these defects by restructuring the shape of the cartilage. The ears are re-stuck, their symmetry is maintained and their appearance remains natural. The results improve the aesthetic appearance which is reflected in the psychological state of the patient, particularly if he or she is young and at school.
This operation can be carried out on patients as young as seven years and from then on at any age of life.
