Otoplasty is a common operation for children and adults which corrects prominent ears. It is a safe operation with a rapid comfortable recovery. Many times it can be done under local anesthesia alone or with an oral tranquilizer.
The most common ear operation is for the repair of elongated or torn earlobes. This usually occurs with the wearing of heavy earrings or ear gauges. This operation is done under local anesthesia and the earlobes can be re-pierced by Dr. McClure
