The ears are a crucial organ, essential for navigating the world safely and effectively. However, if you have ears that seem unusually large or that stick out from your head, you may feel as though the ears are especially burdensome. The good news is that otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a simple procedure designed to reposition the cartilage of the ear and create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. Wondering how otoplasty can improve your confidence? Here are a few points to keep in mind:
Otoplasty Improves Form and Self-Esteem
Whether you were teased as a child or simply carried a self-made burden of embarrassment due to the size or shape of your ears, there is no denying how damaging that can be. During your otoplasty, the surgeon will reshape the cartilage of the ear, adjust the distance that the ears stick out from the head, and create greater ear symmetry. This procedure will not impact hearing, but will greatly improve ear appearance. The results are also long-lasting, so you will not have to worry about the ears repositioning themselves in the future.
Given the potential this surgery has to greatly improve self-confidence, many individuals have this procedure as children. That said, it is equally effective for children and adults. Provided that the patient is healthy, there is no bad time to undergo an otoplasty.
What is the Cost of Confidence?
Otoplasty is often a life-changer for many people, who formerly felt held back by the look of their ears. Of course, surgery of this caliber will require a financial investment. However, at DePerro Plastic Surgery, we are proud to accept a wide range of payment options, including financing through CareCredit®. We hope this allows all of our patients to find that their procedure is within financial reach.
