You’ve always had confidence in the way you look. You love how your eyes, nose, mouth, and body come together to make you who you are. However, not everything is perfect. Despite your confidence in other areas, you might have noticed that your ears don’t fit in as seamlessly with your body as everything else. If you’ve ever felt self-conscious about the shape or size of your ears, you’re not alone. Irregularly shaped, large, or protruding ears can cause embarrassment for the many people who have them, and this can decrease their quality of life. What these people may not know is that they don’t have to live with their embarrassment. If you want to improve the look of your ears, otoplasty may be right for you.
What is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty is a surgery designed to improve the shape and size of one’s ears. Many people who have spent their whole lives feeling embarrassed of their ears have enjoyed great results from this procedure. Our board-certified surgeon can perform otoplasty to correct excessively protruding ears, restore ears that have been deformed from an injury, make the face more proportionate, and address other cosmetic concerns a patient may have with his or her ears.
How Does Otoplasty Work?
This is a cosmetic surgery designed to treat the outer ear. First, we will have an initial consultation with you to discuss the procedure and the results you would like to see. During the actual procedure, Dr. Colton will readjust the position of the ear to make it more visually appealing. Since the surgery only focuses on the outer ear, it is very safe, and your hearing will not be affected in any way. You may be advised to wear a ski headband for the first week following your procedure to ensure the best results. Most patients are able to go back to their regular schedule quite quickly after undergoing otoplasty.
We invite you to schedule a consultation at the Colton Center for Facial Cosmetic Surgery.
