Otoplasty, also known as ear surgery, is a plastic surgery procedure which can improve the appearance of the ears. Otoplasty can reduce the size of large ears, set back prominent or protruding ears closer to the head, and reshape misshapen or irregular-looking ears to make them appear normal.

Healthy individuals looking to improve the appearance of large, prominent or misshapen ears may be good candidates for otoplasty. The procedure can be performed as early as age four, which can help to lessen the psychological and emotional discomfort that children may otherwise endure. Otoplasty is also performed on adults.
Otoplasty can be performed once the ears are fully grown, which typically occurs around the age of four. There are many benefits to performing the surgery at an early age as it can lessen the emotional and psychological discomfort a child may otherwise have to endure.
There are different techniques for otoplasty depending on the particular problem. Incisions are typically located in the back of the ear. The cartilage may be sculpted and the ear bent back toward the head, sometimes with the use of non-removable stitches to hold the new shape. In some cases, it may be necessary to remove a piece of cartilage in order to create a more natural-looking fold.
Though the incisions made for otoplasty do result in scars, they are hidden as they are usually located behind the ears.
Patients can usually return to work or school within five to seven days.
Strenuous activities and contact sports may need to be postponed for about one to two months.
