No. Otoplasty repositions the ear to set closer to the side of the head in a better position. It can also reshape the ear and correct cuping. The ear lobe does not need to be cut.
No. Otoplasty should not cut your earlobe. An incision is placed on the back of the ear just outside the crease behind the ear. It is very well hidden. Unless some other maneuver is being performed there shouldn't be any incisions on the outside of your earlobe. I hope this information is helpful. Stephen weber, M.D., f.A.C.S.
