You are happy with everything you see in your reflection except for one thing: your ears. Whether you feel that they are out of proportion with the rest of your face, stick out too far, or have an unappealing shape, there is nothing that you personally can do about your ears except hide them under your hair or a hat. Fortunately, you do have another option with otoplasty.
What is Involved in Otoplasty?
Otoplasty, which is also commonly referred to as ear surgery, can address a host of problems with your ears, from defects to damage to your ears from trauma. Otoplasty can help when it is not a matter of a deformity, but rather an issue of the actual shape or size of your ears. Position can be an area of focus as well. During the consultation, your ears will be evaluated and your concerns taken into account before scheduling a surgical procedure to give you the desired results. Each time you catch yourself in a mirror, you will be amazed by the change that otoplasty can make in your life.
Undergoing an Otoplasty Procedure
When it is time to undergo otoplasty, you will be provided with either local or general anesthetic. Your health history and personal preferences will be considered beforehand. Incisions will be made in your ear folds or behind your ears to conceal any scarring. After completing the procedure, your incisions will be closed, and your ears will be bandaged. It is important that you wear your bandages for the specified amount of time because they offer your ears support and will help to maintain the altered shape or position of your ears. You will see the difference as soon as your bandaging comes off.
