We have all heard people refer to someone as “Dumbo Ears” or have seen caricature portraits of people with ears that are drastically out of proportion to the size of their head. Though it has probably elicited a chuckle or two, for those who suffer from overly large ears that protrude out to the side, that silly picture may feel like a reality every day. At my practice in Charlotte, I am happy and pleased to help those suffering from the stigma of large ears with an easily performed otoplasty in North Carolina, most commonly referred to as ear pinning.
Who Can Benefit From Otoplasty?
Ear disproportion and malformation is an equal opportunity affliction. Studies have shown that there can be no true isolation in race or gender regarding who suffers from this condition. One study has said that 53% of patients that receive otoplasty are males, while another study purports that 33% of patients that undergo the procedure are in their teens. These numbers just go to show that otoplasty can be the right choice for any and all who feel that their ears are a source of mockery, no matter what race, gender, or age that they are. I have seen many people from all walks of life come to my practice for an otoplasty in Charlotte, but the results are all the same, happy smiles and an improved feeling of confidence in their appearance.
What Is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty is a simple, minimally invasive operation that pulls the ear back to a more aesthetically pleasing position. If you decide to have an otoplastic augmentation, the operation can be performed in office, under local anesthetic, and there is no need for hospitalization. The whole procedure can be performed in just under three hours, with a relatively short recovery time, but the effects can result in a lifetime of improved confidence! Most of my patients that have opted for otoplasty are young children and concerned parents who have suffered from teasing and ridicule over the size and disproportion of the ears, but otoplasty can be performed at any age. It can improve confidence and help with low self-esteem whether you are five or fifty!
