Otoplasty Houston is a procedure to reshape the ears into a more normal ear size and positioning. Kids that are born with ears that are disproportionately large or stick out from the side of the head are often the target of needless teasing from their peers and this can negatively impact their self-confidence well into adulthood. Otoplasty surgery is a procedure that is performed in an outpatient surgery center and the procedure is most often recommended to be performed while patients are still young as the cartilage is more malleable, however, adults are still able to benefit from the procedure. Otoplasty is performed with the incision hidden best as possible in the natural creases and grooves of the ear to hide scars. Typically the ear surgery procedure takes approximately two and half hours to complete.
