Your ears frame your face and define its shape. If the ears protrude, are misshapen or have suffered trauma, you may see very noticeable flaws that draw the eye away from your other features. You may feel tempted to conceal your ears with long hair or a hat, but this is not always a viable solution, and you may find yourself avoiding situations where the ears will be exposed.
Feeling that everybody is staring at an aspect of your appearance that you can’t control will induce anxiety and shame, and you may become less outgoing in social situations. Children and teenagers with protruding ears could find themselves the subject of teasing or bullying, which is damaging to their sense of self-worth.
Choose a Simple Surgical Procedure to Correct Problem Ears
Otoplasty is an ear reshaping surgery that can reduce the size of overly large ears, reshape the helix and shorten the lobule. Protruding ears can be ‘pinned’ close to the head either by making a small incision to bend the ear, or by shaving off a portion of the cartilage.
Doctor Khosh has many years of experience in performing otoplasty procedures and can create a symmetrical, natural look. Some parents seek ear pinning surgery for very young children, but Doctor Khosh does not recommend this procedure for anyone younger than five.
As children grow, producing ears may naturally retract, and if pinned early they can then appear too close to the head. If you are unsatisfied with the results of a previous ear corrective surgery, Doctor Khosh can provide a solution to restore a more organic aesthetic.
Reshape Damaged Ears
It is very common for the ear to suffer trauma. Earlobes are easily injured if piercings are ripped out, leaving a noticeable tear. Constantly wearing large or heavy earrings can cause the earlobe to unnaturally stretch and elongate, and actions such as frequently using a cell phone can exacerbate the issue.
Using ear gauges may have been an exciting fashion choice but distended earlobes could eventually become an unwanted flaw. In most cases, Doctor Khosh can resolve damaged earlobes with a simple surgery under local anaesthetic.
