WHAT CAN EAR SURGERY ACHIEVE?
Plastic Surgery Dubai | 1 December 2020
Otoplasty, or ear surgery, is a plastic surgery procedure designed to enhance the appearance of the ears. Ear surgery can reshape the ears, improve their size or protrusion, correct concerns, or correct the appearance of stretched or gauged earlobes. Patients who are missing one or both ears from birth or an injury can have new ears constructed with otoplasty. Dr. Vigo performs ear surgery to help enhance patients’ ears and improve their appearance, confidence, and self-image.
CORRECT EAR DEFORMITIES OR INJURIES
Otoplasty can correct ear deformities or injuries such as lop ear, cupped ear, shell ear, and cauliflower ear. Surgery can help your ears blend in well with your other features and balance your facial profile.
REDUCE EAR SIZE OR PROTRUSION
Ears that stick out noticeably from the head or that are too prominent may cause feelings of self-consciousness. Dr. Vigo can perform otoplasty to make your ears smaller and lessen the degree to which they protrude from the side of your head. After surgery, your ears will look more balanced and will no longer draw attention.
Some earlobes are naturally large or develop creases or wrinkles. Others may become stretched or develop unsightly holes due to wearing heavy earrings or gauges. Otoplasty can correct these issues and restore a more natural appearance to the earlobes.
REBUILD A MISSING EAR
Some candidates for ear surgery are missing one or both ears because of an injury or from birth. Missing the outer ears may not affect hearing, but it can draw unwanted attention. Dr. Vigo can use natural tissues and cartilage to reconstruct a missing ear and restore your appearance.
BOOST SELF-ESTEEM AND CONFIDENCE
Many individuals experience self-esteem issues, poor self-confidence, social anxiety, or ridicule due to the appearance of their ears. Children are particularly vulnerable to emotional and psychological trauma from the mockery of other children. Otoplasty can enhance your ears and boost your self-esteem and confidence by providing more proportionate ears.
