I heard of a technique for otoplasty called an incisionless otoplasty. Are there really no incisions made? How is the ear changed? Are there no scars?
There is a procedure called incisionless otoplasty. I do not perform this particular type of otoplasty as the results are not nearly as predictable and reproducible as the type of otoplasty that I do perform. All of the incisions that I use in otoplasty are on the backcrease of the ear and are difficult to see post operatively. The otoplasty results I am able to achieve are extremely pleasing with very little post-operative discomfort.
