Am I a Good Candidate for an Otoplasty?

Do you have large protruding ears that make you feel self-conscious about your appearance?

Or does your child have ears that are too large for their facial features, and it’s a source of embarrassment for them?

In either case, you or your child may be a good candidate for an otoplasty procedure. This surgery focuses on correcting and resizing the ears so that they better fit the patient’s facial features. What’s more, the ears are reshaped to create a more aesthetically-pleasing appearance.

The end result? Ears that look great – and sky-rocketing confidence levels!

Good Candidates for an Otoplasty Procedure

You’re a good candidate for an otoplasty procedure if you or your child feel self-conscious about the size or appearance of the ears. The most common concerns that can be fixed with otoplasty surgery include:

  • Protruding ears
  • Ears that are too large for the person’s head/facial feature
  • Oddly shaped ears
  • And more

Otoplasty is one of the few cosmetic procedures that can be performed on younger children (as young as 5). We recommend that parents consider scheduling their children’s otoplasty procedure at the beginning of summer vacation, as it takes a few months for healing to take place.

All otoplasty candidates should be healthy nonsmokers who are willing to commit to their post-op recovery plan.

Benefits of an Otoplasty Procedure

The biggest benefits of an otoplasty procedure include:

  • Quick recovery time
  • Long-lasting results (in most cases, results can be permanent)
  • A customized approach that aims to match the candidate’s facial features
  • A huge boost to the patient’s self-confidence
  • A safe procedure with excellent patient satisfaction ratings
  • And more!
