The ears are a part of the body that are easily seen by others. Although they can be hidden behind your long hair, your hairdo cannot conceal the shape and size of you ears for long. This is a common problem experienced by adults and children whose ears are too big or protrude too much from the head.
Though the condition may not affect one in a medical sense, this condition can cause unbearable embarrassment and shame — especially to children. It’s a good thing that both children and adults can find the answer in the form of plastic surgery. Here at our Newark facial plastic surgery practice, ear surgery is done to correct oddly shaped ears.
Otoplasty: No Need to Conceal Your Ears
Otoplasty, also known as ear reshaping or ear surgery, is a procedure that improves the appearance of the ears. This treatment has grown more popular since many are constantly teased by peers, classmates, and strangers each day because of misshapen ears. Children, most especially, continuously suffer from low self-esteem due to all the teasing and bullying from others.
Traditional and Reconstructive Surgery of the Ears
Otoplasty, which is also known as ear pinning, can address large, extruding ears by “pinning” them back toward the individual’s head. Otoplasty can also be done as a reconstructive surgery where individuals with severe ear defects can achieve more normal-looking ears. Children with congenital defects in the ears can also benefit from the procedure.
