Many people are unsatisfied with their ears. They are either too large, stick out too far or have some defect that makes a person feel embarrassed about their appearance. Women will sometimes try to hide their ears with their hair. Men may do the same, or they are left to show their ears off to the world even though they do not like the appearance of their ears.
Fortunately, there is a surgical procedure that can help individuals to change the shape, size and position of their ears. Ear surgery, also referred to as otoplasty, can help individuals who are unsatisfied with the appearance of their ears.
Many parents who have young children are interested in learning more about otoplasty to correct any defects with their child’s ears when they are young. Unfortunately, many individuals who have large or misshapen ears can be the subject of ridicule when they are in school. Many parents decide to schedule an ear surgery for their child to help them avoid ridicule and bullying before they begin school. Otoplasty can help to pin back protruding ears and fix other problems with the ears.
It is important for the ears to reach their full size before this surgery can be performed. For the most part, a child’s ears will be their full size after they are five years old. Parents who are concerned about the size or position of their child’s ears may consider this surgery when the child is young. It is important to talk to our medical professional about this option.
The Most Common Reasons Why Patients Are Interested in Otoplasty
Otoplasty can address a variety of issues with the ears. This may be something that you are interested in if your ears are very large in comparison to the size of your head. Also, if your ears stick out or protrude, you may be interested in otoplasty to pin them back. Some individuals have only one ear that is larger than the other or that is misshapen in some way. Otoplasty can leave you with ears that are symmetrical.
