Ears that protrude or have a disproportionate size or shape can cause intense feelings of self-consciousness.
Otoplasty can permanently change the shape, size, and position of your ears.
Why should I consider otoplasty?
Improved Appearance and Confidence
Refined DimensionsOtoplasty can reduce the size of overly large ears or reposition protruding ears for improved harmony with your other features.
Less Unwanted AttentionYoung children are often prone to unwanted attention due to large or protruding ears. Otoplasty can make your ears less conspicuous.
Boosted Self-EsteemThe results of otoplasty can help you feel liberated from feelings of self-consciousness and dissatisfaction with your appearance.
