We are taught from the time that we are very young that when a person has ears that stick out, they look silly or goofy. This does not mean that this idea is correct. However, think about some of the most popular cartoon characters. The majority of them are portrayed with large ears that make them look funny.
Since many individuals have this idea from the time that they are young, it can make a person who has large ears that stick out feel bad about themselves. And, unfortunately, it can sometimes make them the target of bullying, ridicule and teasing when they are in school. Even as they get older and find a job, they may not be looked upon in the best light. It has been proven time and again that individuals who have an overall attractive appearance usually make more money, are treated better and are viewed as more likable.
Many individuals who have ears that stick out very far have decided to turn to otoplasty in order to help them look and feel better. Otoplasty is ear surgery that is designed in order to pin back protruding ears and help with other issues that a person may have with their ears.
Many individuals who have used the surgery wish that they would have done it sooner. Even though they know that their true value is based on who they are on the inside, they realize that when they do not feel good about their appearance, they have less confidence. They have lower self-esteem, and they notice that other people treat them better when they look more attractive.
Otoplasty is a very popular cosmetic surgery. The recovery time is relatively quick, especially considering the benefits that the person will receive. The best way for you to find out if otoplasty is right for you is to schedule a consultation. When you come in for your consultation, we are going to ask you questions about your ears and what it is that you do not like. Feel free to openly and honestly discuss what it is about your appearance that you do not like. We are going to do all that we can in order to use otoplasty or other means to help you fix these things.
It is important for all of our clients to understand that otoplasty is only designed in order to help improve the way the ears look. It cannot change the position of the ears on the head, and it in no way affects a person’s ability to hear. A person who has bad hearing will not walk away from otoplasty with better hearing. However, we are able to use a wide variety of techniques in order to pin back the ears, make the ears smaller, make them more symmetrical, and do a variety of other things.
