Gone are the days when a person had something about their appearance that they were unsatisfied with and they could do absolutely nothing about it. Thanks to advances in modern medicine and cosmetic surgery, individuals can now change things about their appearance that cause them embarrassment or that they simply do not like.
Just look at the example of individuals who use rhinoplasty, or a nose job, to improve the appearance, shape and/or size of their nose. This is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries that is performed in the United States and in other countries. However, rhinoplasty is not all that is available. There are surgeries that can help you look younger and fix a wide range of features of your body that you do not like.
One option is otoplasty. This is a surgery that is performed to change the shape and/or size of the ears. It can also pin back protruding ears. It is mostly used to help individuals improve the appearance of their ears. They may simply be unsatisfied with the look of their ears or may have a deformity.
Otoplasty is not designed to help an individual improve their hearing. It is a surgery that only takes place on the outer ear. However, otoplasty can be used to make an individual’s ears smaller, to make them more shapely or to pin them back.
It is very common for parents to ask our doctor about otoplasty for their child. They know that when an individual has protruding ears, they can sometimes be the target of a lot of bullying and ridicule when they are in school. To help children avoid this, a parent may want to learn more about otoplasty to see if it is right for their child. No matter if you are interested in this procedure for yourself or your child, scheduling a consultation is the best way to find out what the procedure is designed to do and if it is right for you or your child.
If you are embarrassed by large ears, ears that stick out or a deformed ear, otoplasty may be right for you.
