Otoplasty is the surgical reshaping of the outer ear (pinna) and can be either a cosmetic or reconstructive procedure. Otoplastic techniques are used to correct, reconstruct or replace a deformed, defective or missing pinna. While it is commonly performed during childhood, it can be done on patients of any age. Correcting large, protruding ears can make a significant difference in one’s self-confidence. Ears which are placed flat alongside the head can give your face a completely different appearance.

Ear remodeling is a relatively easy procedure and can be performed completely safely by Dr. Fantozzi and his highly-qualified team. Complications afterwards rarely occur. The surgical incision is usually made in an inconspicuous location behind the ear, so the thin scar will be barely noticeable. Dr. Fantozzi then adjusts the position of the ear and removes unwanted cartilage. The surgery usually performed under local anesthesia, and lasts about one hour.
