Are you unhappy with the size or shape of your ears? Otoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that people are interested in for various reasons. This surgery may be used to help improve the way the outer ear looks. It can do a variety of things in order to change the size and shape of the ear.
One of the reasons why parents may consider otoplasty for their child is because they understand that as children grow, they could become the target of ridicule and bullying if there is something about their appearance that is different than other children. If a child has ears that are very large or that stick out very far, they may feel self-conscious. Even as a child grows up and enters the workplace, they can still face this constant ridicule.
Patients who consider this surgery may feel that the way their ears appear may affect their appearance and the way others see them. Some may get this surgery done in order to improve their business opportunities, to have better success in their personal relationships or they could get it done in order to improve the way they feel about themselves.
Otoplasty is not designed in order to treat the inner or middle ear. It is a cosmetic procedure that is solely performed on the outer ear. This procedure can work to remove excess cartilage, pin the ears back and correct the symmetry. After the procedure, you can follow our medical team’s recovery guidelines in order to have a successful recovery. Once you have fully recovered, you may be able to enjoy long-lasting results!
