Surgery of protruding ears- Otoplasty

What is Otoplasty?

Otoplasty is one of the most common plastic surgeries. It´s often provided, as one of the few, also in the childhood. Surgery is suitable from the age of 6 years, especially when a child is changing the school, for example from the Kindergarten to the Elementary School, or from the Elementary School to the Secondary School. Ear deformities are not a health but aesthetical problem. People with ear deformities are often scoffed, mostly in the youth and adolescence. Scoff can cause the feelings of inferiority, antiphathy towards own body as well as mental problems. It´s  convenient to consider the surgery as soon as possible.

While Otoplasty the surgeon shapes genuine ear folds, so called antihelix and puts ears closer to head.  Even tough you are not a child, you will also appreciate wearing your hair in a ponytail or beautiful earrings without feeling ashamed for your not good-looking ears. It will boost your self-confidence and appearance that you´ve always dreamt of.
