An otoplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery that reshapes the ears. Many people are born with ears that protrude away from the head to a degree that is considered abnormal. As the individual grows, other people start to take notice. This can lead to severe teasing and bullying throughout a person’s childhood. Quite often, an otoplasty is performed when the child is about five or six years of age. However, an increasing number of adults are now having this cosmetic surgery to boost their self-confidence and self-image.
