Otoplasty or (Prominent Ear) is a same day procedure done under local anesthesia. It can give you a new confidence in your appearance. It corrects protruding ears or “Mickey Mouse Ears” and eases the embarrassment of individuals who suffer from this problem. This procedure also eradicates the psychological impact of low self-esteem, especially in children who cover their ears with hair, to conceal their condition.
The otoplastic surgeon corrects the defect or deformity by creating an external ear that is of natural proportions, contour, and appearance, usually achieved by the reshaping, the moving, and the augmenting of the cartilaginous support framework of the pinna. Moreover, the occurrence of congenital ear deformities occasionally overlaps with other medical conditions.

Prominent ears (can be for one ear only or both ears depending on the case).
Operating time around 30 minutes to 1 hour depending on the case.
