There are a couple of features of an individual’s appearance that can easily make them the target of ridicule when they are young and can make them feel unattractive when they are an adult. One of these things is protruding ears. When a person has ears that stick out and they are in school, they are likely to be made fun of by other children. And as a person gets older, no matter how nice the rest of their appearance is, having ears that stick out can detract from their appearance. Some individuals feel so bad about this aspect of their appearance that it causes them to not live their life to the fullest.
Ear surgery is a procedure that is designed to pin back protruding ears and make the ears more attractive. It is usually a very simple surgery that can help a person achieve quick results. It is important for individuals to know that this type of ear surgery is not designed in any way to change an individual’s ability to hear. It will not improve a person’s hearing, and it will not make a person’s hearing worse. It is only designed to change the outer part of the ear, as it is a cosmetic surgery.
There are very few things that would disqualify a person from ear surgery. The main thing that we are concerned about before performing ear surgery on one of our patients is their overall health. We want to make sure that you are in good health and will be able to get the best results from your surgery.
