Ear Surgery: Otoplasty
Ears are a prominent feature of our appearance and beauty as they are set so close to the face and get their fair share of attention. However, not everyone has neatly shaped and proportionate ears. Some people have abnormal ear structure, large ears that stick out far from their head, or uneven, disproportionate, large, misshapen ears. The cause usually is a birth deformity, but an injury to the ears may also cause it. Due to such reasons, people feel very conscious about their appearance, lose confidence, and struggle with self-esteem issues. Otoplasty or Ear Surgery is the perfect solution if you are struggling with ear-appearance related issues.
What Is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty or Ear surgery is a procedure for correcting the deformities and defects of the ear. It creates a more natural shape while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face.
