Ear Plastic Surgery / Otoplasty Information Resource for Southern California including Orange County, Newport Beach, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and San Diego.
People who are good candidates for ear plastic surgery are those who feel very self-conscious about the way their ears look. Often, they wear their hair long and over their ears to hide them. They may wear hats, scarves, or other things to cover their ears so that they cannot be seen. For children, many times they are teased in school and feel insecure with their difference from other students. It is unfair to the child, but unfortunately it still happens.
If you, or your children, are self-conscious about the appearance of the ears it is certainly worth your while to look into the treatment options. If, on the other hand, you or your family member has what appears to be a large or protruding ear but is not worried about it, it is probably best not to do anything at all. The whole point of ear plastic surgery is to make one feel more comfortable about their appearance.. Like the old saying, If it's not broken, don't fix it. There is no medical reason except, of course, for the psychological one to have ear plastic surgery.
