Otoplasty — also known as cosmetic ear surgery — is a procedure to change the shape, position or size of the ears.
You might choose to have otoplasty if you're bothered by how far your ears stick out from your head. You might also consider otoplasty if your ear or ears are misshapen due to an injury or birth defect. 

Why it's done 

You might consider otoplasty if:

• Your ear or ears stick out too far from your head
• Your ears are large in proportion to your head
• You're dissatisfied with a previous ear surgery

Is it worth it?

An otoplasty is normally a safe and successful procedure, with high satisfaction rates.
Researchers in Germany found that people who underwent otoplasty to reduce protruding ears felt they had a better quality of life after the operation.
It is important to have realistic expectations about what can be achieved through plastic surgery, whether reconstructive or cosmetic.
Otoplasty can change the appearance of ears, making them less prominent or smaller, but perfect symmetry is not always possible.
