Ears You Love
- Posted on: Apr 15 2019
If you don’t love certain parts of your body, winter might be your favorite time of year. We could be hiding a few extra pounds under a nice, cozy sweater or covering up dry skin with layers of makeup, or we may even find ourselves hiding our ears under big cozy hats.
And even if hats can help you keep warm and transition to spring, you shouldn’t wear one just because you feel you need to hide your ears. If you’re ready to feel more confident with your ears, keep reading to learn about otoplasty.
What is Otoplasty?
Our ears continue to grow (and our nose, too) for the remainder of our lives. The cartilage that makes up our ears may grow overly large and elongate. This can come as a result of wearing heavy earrings or just our genetic luck. Alternatively, you may have had your ears pierced or stretched, then realized you wanted to go back to the normal look of your ears before you did that. Cartilage can only shrink back so much after you’ve stretched it, so you may be left with excess skin that droops and hangs past where it would normally.
Otoplasty is the plastic surgery technique that is utilized in repairing and correcting the look of ears you may not like. It can be used to reshape the shape of the ears, shrink the size of earlobes, or just even adjust the angle of the ears.
Who is a good candidate?
If you’re in good health and can have surgery, then you are likely a good candidate for this procedure. Also, anyone who is bothered by the shape or size of their ears is a good candidate for otoplasty. You don’t need to have had an accident or other unfortunate mishap to benefit from this surgery. So, make this the year you love your ears.
Otoplasty can be used to help you get the ears you don’t have to hide. Whether you’ve had an accident or just don’t love the ears you were born with, we can help. Are you interested in learning more about otoplasty? Call us at 516-487-5017 to schedule a consultation today.
