Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

In addition, a physical examination will be carried out to know the treatment options, according to the needs of the patient, taking into account the size, shape and symmetry of their ears. Then, the results that he seeks to obtain by undergoing this procedure will be discussed, this is his time to ask any question that generates doubts on the subject.
