If you hate your ears, you may be a candidate for otoplasty, plastic surgery for the outer ear. Otoplasty will improve the shape of the ear if they have developed too prominently or have become misshapen as a result of injury.
Ear surgery creates a natural shape, while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of even minor deformities can have profound beneﬁts to appearance and self-esteem.
Setback or pinback Otoplasty is the most frequently performed procedure for reconstruction of prominent or protruding ears. The normal result of an Otoplasty is a reconstructed or reshaped ear that resembles a normal ear (or the patient’s other ear) more closely. In a setback Otoplasty, the normal result is an ear that lies closer to the patient’s head without an overcorrected, “pinned-back” look.
If protruding or disﬁgured ears bother you or your child, you may consider Burbank Plastic Surgery for plastic surgery.
