Otoplasty: Is it a good idea for you?


The ear is one of our most important sense organs. However, the condition of deformity in the ears in some people genetically affects self-esteem, especially in the social or in business life. In particular, this situation can be more emotionally impressive for children. Due to otoplasty (ear aesthetics), this situation can no longer be a problem and can be solved easily. Every year, most  people who experience this situation can solve the deformity in their ears in the best way.

What’s otoplasty?

Otoplasty is the term for cosmetic surgery of the ear, and the procedure is designed to alter the size or proportion of the ears. This procedure can also treat formless ears caused by an injury. Correction of even minor deformities can have profound benefits to appearance and self-esteem. To achieve this, the surgeon makes a small incision behind the ear, then removes small portions of the cartilage and reshape the ear. Otoplasty creates balance and proportion to the ears and face with a natural shape.

Are you a good candidate for otoplasty?

For otoplasty surgery, firstly, there should not be a health problem that can prevent surgery. The most important point here; is that the ears have completed their development before surgery. Generally 5 years old, or when a child’s ear cartilage is stable enough for correction.
There are three main reasons for otoplasty:

  1. You Were Born with Overly Prominent Ears 
  2. Your Ears are Disproportionate to Other Facial Features
  3. You’ve Suffered a Past Injury

Otoplasty is an individualized procedure. You should just do it for yourself, not to the ideal image.


Bandages will cover your ears for protection and support. A few days after otoplasty, your doctor will remove your bandages. You’ll need to wear a loose headband that covers your ears at night for two to six weeks. This will help keep you from pulling your ears forward when you are sleeping.
Your doctor will tell you when will your stitches remove. Some stitches dissolve on their own. Others must be removed in the hospital in the weeks after the procedure.


Otoplasty, which is also referred to as ear pinning surgery, has been shown to improve quality of life and self-image. This procedure improves ear proportions and promotes facial harmony. The results of otoplasty are permanent. While this means your ear will be with you for a lifetime. 
If you are considering ear surgery for yourself and your child, do not forget to get a consultation from qualified plastic surgeon.

  1. I made my fillings in vanity for advice, and I became beautiful with two fillings as if the magic wand touched them. I was very happy that they were friendly, clean and caring. The fillings I made for my nose and chin were both very natural and beautiful. Good thing I chose you and I can assure you that I will come back again and again. Thank you vanity.

  3. When I was in my forties, I realized that I now need little fillers and touches. I went to the vanity hospital where my girlfriends had gone before. As far as I can see, my friends’ look was very natural and beautiful. I have been going for a year and I am very pleased. They make me feel much more beautiful in a natural and painless way. Good thing I’m gone I definitely recommend it. The hospital environment was very clean and hygienic, and their interest was also very good. Thanks vanity hospital.
