If you have large ears, this is likely a feature that causes you to feel self-conscious. Unfortunately, it may have led to name-calling and bullying when you were in school and even now that you are an adult. If you feel unhappy with large ears, otoplasty may be the right option for you. NYC residents are warmly invited to contact us to learn more about how this surgery can benefit them.
What Is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty refers to surgery that is designed to change the shape and size of the outer ears. If you have problems with your hearing or something else that affects the middle or inner ear, this is not the right option for you. It will not adjust or improve your hearing in any way. It is a cosmetic surgery that can address issues like ears that are very prominent, that protrude, or that are misshapen in some way.
The surgery is performed in a way that benefits each individual patient. For this reason, it is difficult for us to tell you exactly what you should expect when you have ear surgery performed in order to address large ears or other issues with your ears. In most cases, an incision is made right behind the ear. This incision allows our plastic surgeon to remove some of the cartilage. Soft tissue may also be removed and reshaped. If necessary, the ear can be pinned back on the head in order to stop the ear from protruding. Then the incision is closed with sutures.
The great thing about having this surgical procedure performed is that you are not likely to have any visible scarring. The incisions that are made are very small. Additionally, they are made in creases and areas where they can easily be hidden.
The Benefits of Ear Surgery in NYC
Many individuals struggle with the idea that they are being vain when considering otoplasty or that they should not be forced to consider surgery because of bullying or ridicule from others.
We do not believe that individuals who are seeking ear surgery are being vain. One of the biggest benefits that you will receive after ear surgery is a major boost in your confidence. You will no longer feel like you have to hide away from others or like you are inferior. Symmetry will be brought to your entire head and face. When you look in the mirror, you will no longer focus on your ears. You may have the courage to do things that you never felt confident enough to try before.
We do not agree that others should be judged based on their appearance, but the reality is that it happens. You will see the additional benefit of having others view you in a more positive light after otoplasty.
