One of the most sought-after surgeries within the scope of Plastic Surgery is Otoplasty, which aims to correct the ears commonly known as “flappy ears” (Helix Valgus).

Through Otoplasty it is possible to correct the shape, proportion and position of the ear and/or the orientation of the pinna, situations resulting from congenital deformities or acquired deformities, which can affect uni or bilaterally.

The sensation of ears that are too far from the head can be due to a greater development of cartilage or the absence of the natural curvatures of the ear, which can thus transmit an effect of greater size.

Since the congenital deformity is the main reason for seeking this treatment, it is recommended that children suffering from this alteration be treated during pre-school age in order to avoid unwanted comments and possible psychological traumas during their growth.

The scar of an Otoplasty is located behind the ear – in the furrow between the ear and the skull – and for this reason is difficult to see.
