Correcting Protruding or Misshapen Ears
Many patients suffer through years of being self conscious about their ears. Either they had protruding ears, or they had ears with a cupped or unfolded shape that made them appear too large. Whatever the reason, results of otoplasty can be dramatic, eliminate the problem and restoring confidence while creating a more pleasing appearance.
Otoplasty brings the ears back closer to the head, reducing the protruding appearance. It may involve removing cartilage or moulding or reshaping the ears. All procedures only involve the outer ear, and not the middle or inner ear, so there is no affect on hearing.
Are You A Candidate for Otoplasty?
To be considered a candidate for otoplasty, patients must be in good health, and have no pre-existing medical conditions. In addition, patients should:
- Be of 18 years or older
- Have realistic expectations about the outcome of the surgery
- Be non-smokers or have quit smoking
The procedure is done for aesthetic reasons, to help improve one’s body image and self-esteem. If you are concerned about the appearance of your ears to the point that you wear your hair to cover them, then you may be a good candidate for this procedure.
What Can You Expect With Otoplasty
The process begins with an initial consultation with your surgeon. You will have an opportunity to discuss your goals and expectations about the otoplasty procedure with the doctor, and ask any relevant questions you may have.
During your initial consultation, your surgeon will:
- Review your medical history and any medications you are taking
- Discuss the procedure and any related procedures
- Provide recommendations based on your needs and goals
The surgeon will listen to your needs, expectations and your desired outcome from the otoplasty.
