Your face is its most attractive when everything is in the right portion. It is no accident that humans equate facial proportion with beauty since facial symmetry and proportion are good indicators of overall health. When something on your face is out of proportion, it not only makes you look less attractive, but it can also cause you to receive some unwanted criticism and ridicule. It’s not fair, but it often happens. Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is designed to help you change the size or shape of your ears if they are out of proportion with the rest of your face. Otoplasty can be used to help you if your ear deformity is something that happened as a child, if it was something that you were born with or if it was something that was caused by an injury as you got older.
The purpose of ear surgery is to give your ears a shape that most people would consider natural. Our plastic surgeon’s goal is to make your ears proportional to the rest of your face. It’s interesting to note that even the slightest imbalance in the size, shape or proportion of your ears can have dramatic results. It can affect your self-esteem, and it can have a profoundly negative effect on the way that people treat you.
Often times, all it takes are minor corrections to your ears to make your face and head look proportional. If protruding ears or ears that are disfigured have been a source of discomfort for you for many years, know that you do not have to live with them any longer. Otoplasty is a surgical procedure that can help restore your self-esteem.
Many parents will bring their children in to have this procedure done. This is because they understand that when a child has large or protruding ears, they can be the target of bullying in school and in social situations. Making the ears look as normal as possible through a simple otoplasty procedure can significantly improve their appearance and quality of life.
Otoplasty is an amazing procedure that has the potential to enhance many aspects of your life. Make an appointment at the Cosmetic Surgical Arts Center to see if this is the right procedure for you. Contact us today to book a consultation at our office in Mount Vernon or Lynnwood.
