Are your ears abnormally shaped or sized? If so, cartilage scoring may be the right type of ear alteration surgery for you.
Cartilage scoring otoplasty, or cartilage splitting otoplasty, involves the creation of incisions, followed by repositioning and excision of tissue. These incisions give the plastic surgeon greater access to internal tissues and better control of the area than other methods would.
In the end, the choice of cartilage scoring versus other techniques is in the hands of you and your plastic surgeon. To discuss the optimal otoplasty method for you, set up a consultation with a qualified, skilled plastic surgeon. Dr. Mark Mofid, a board-certified plastic surgeon with years of experience, will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
