There are very few things that can be as embarrassing or difficult to deal with as misshapen or protruding ears. Unfortunately, society usually looks down on individuals who have ears that stick out very far or that are positioned or shaped in an unusual way.
That view is reflected in entertainment, for example, such as the way cartoonists have drawn comic relief characters for years. Usually, they have big, protruding, misshapen ears.
If you or your child are dealing with this problem, otoplasty can be a solution. It can correct misshapen ears and pin back protruding ears. This ear reshaping surgery can be the answer to your cosmetic prayers and can help your child to avoid years of ridicule while they are growing up and going to school.
Most patients visit our office and inquire about otoplasty if they have ears that stick out very far from their head. Very young children may qualify for this surgery depending on their particular circumstances. Otoplasty is a surgical procedure that can permanently pin back protruding ears and correct misshapen ears. Also, many individuals come to our office inquiring about ear reshaping surgery if their ears are very large in proportion to their head.
Some of our patients are also individuals who had previous ear surgery and were left unsatisfied with the results. We can correct problems that came as a result of a botched past ear reshaping procedure. It is important for patients to understand that when they have otoplasty, it will not be able to correct any problems with their hearing. Also, this is an ear reshaping process; it is not a surgery that changes other facial features.
One of the biggest benefits that individuals receive after going through an ear reshaping surgery is walking away with ears that are more attractive. They feel proud to show their ears to the world instead of feeling embarrassed by their appearance.
Since otoplasty is a surgical procedure, an individual would need to be in good health. We will discuss your medical history with you when you come in for your consultation.
