With Other Procedures

While a patient asking for facial plastic surgery will ask for surgery on a specific structure, their ultimate motivation is frequently to improve the way they look. Because of the role ears play in facial aesthetics, it is common to have an otoplasty at the same time as a variety of facial procedures such as rhinoplasty, facelift, blepharoplasty, chin augmentation, and/or submental liposuction. It is commonly done at the same time as rhinoplasty on teenage women.

Ear surgery can create a large boost to appearance and self esteem, and since it is not very painful or risky it is a common addition to other surgical procedures.
