Ears just like us, human beings, come in different shapes and sizes .They may stick out too far, may be too big, mismatched or a little different in size. Luckily, un-like people, there is hope and the ears can be changed into a more desirable shape.
Children can get self-conscious about ears as their peers can sometimes be cruel and vicious and pick on them for having “large” ears. This is detrimental for their self confidence.
To such little people and big people we offer Otoplasty. Otoplasty is a procedure in which, without compromising the hearing ability, wonders are done for self esteem by bringing the ears back in proportion with that of the face and head.
Otoplasty can be performed in adulthood but the minimum age is around 5-6 years as the ears have reached their full size and will not grow any further. Since the cartilage of the ears in this age group is not as hard as the adults, their ears can be more easily shaped and sculpted into a desired form.
During consultation, one of our experienced doctors will examine your ears and will discuss the surgical and non surgical options available for the correction of the ears. The surgery takes about 2-3 hours, patient goes home soon after the procedure and resumes daily routine activities in a couple of days.
