If you have protruding ears, you know how much they can negatively affect a person’s life. If one of your children has ears that stick out very far, you may worry about the way that others will treat them. You may do all you can to boost their self-confidence, yet you know that when they are at school and even when they enter the workforce when they get older, they may be a target for bullying and ridicule.
Many individuals who have used otoplasty to correct their protruding ears feel very happy that they had the procedure performed. They know that their self-worth is not based on their outer appearance. However, they also realize that when a person looks great on the outside, they tend to feel great on the inside as well. And they know that others are going to have a more positive view of them when their ears are more in proportion with their overall appearance.
We encourage all of our clients to learn as much as they can about the otoplasty procedure. One of the first things that people learn is that otoplasty is solely designed to correct cosmetic issues. It is not a procedure that is designed to help individuals who have trouble hearing. So, if you have protruding ears or other cosmetic problems pertaining to your ears, otoplasty can likely be used to help you.
The exact procedure that is used in order to help you is going to depend on your specific wants and needs. However, when you come in for your consultation, we will be able to examine your ears closely and then come up with a treatment plan that can help you to get ears that you will be happier with. During your initial consultation at our office, we are also going to be able to give you more information about how long the procedure will take and how long it will take for you to recover afterward.
