If you were born with prominent or projecting ears, ear surgery – or otoplasty – can help you have nicely-balanced ears that lie back against your head.
What Is Otoplasty?
Ears that pop out from the side of the head can be embarrassing and unflattering. Many people are insecure about large, protruding ears that cause the face to appear unattractive and unusual. Unfortunately, this is one of the characteristics of the face a person cannot change on their own, so any changes to the shape or position of the ears require surgical expertise.
Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is an option to correct the appearance of the ears. A common procedure performed on children, otoplasty is also a surgery that can be an option for adults who have been suffering from the torment caused by having large ears their entire lives. After undergoing otoplasty, patients can achieve ears that sit back on the face and create better facial balance.
