Otoplasty procedures are a highly popular choice for many people within Sydney and throughout Australia.…
A simple procedure that can alleviate a lifetime of teasing. Although most people don’t think of ears as a particularly important beauty attribute, ears that stick out and that are out of proportion to the rest of the face can cause untold misery for some people.
Unkind remarks, particularly in the school playground, can have a significant negative impact on the well-being of children. Surgeons often recommend that children with protruding ears should be operated on prior to starting school as this will build their self-confidence. Women with protruding ears are often uncomfortable with wearing their hair up and off their faces and men with hair that is thinning are frequently self-conscious about their ‘bat-ears’.
Ear defects tend to be hereditary and Otoplasty or Ear Pinning Surgery is a relatively easy facial cosmetic procedure that can alleviate the problems of embarrassment and teasing, and can be performed on both young and old patients. The incisions for Otoplasty are generally performed behind the ear and scars are therefore inconspicuous. A dressing is applied around the head after surgery and is generally worn for a couple of weeks and then surgeons recommend that a headband be worn at night for at least 2 months post-surgery.
Otoplasty is a simple operation with an extremely high rate of success; it alleviates embarrassment and improves self-confidence and patients report that it is absolutely well-worth the minimal pain they’ve endured post-surgery.
